My name is Teddy Muyeka, and I am passionate about sharing my mental health journey. I am glad to share my experiences here at “Building Self-Esteem” so that I can help others cope better with their struggles. I have lived with depression for a long time, and it has deeply affected my self-esteem. My coping mechanisms during this time, mostly avoidance, turned out to be causing more harm than good. It wasn’t until I started therapy that I started my journey to rebuild my self-confidence and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
