One truly undermines yourself. After reading “Contract with myself” by Dineshrie Pillay I found that I was very guilty of many of the concepts Dineshrie talks about. How often do we neglect “Me Time” which she describes in her book? A truly eye opening ready and easy life lessons we know, yet we don’t live by.
