How to Cope: Chapter 1Chapter 1: Loving Yourself, But, Like, On Steroids Or Something, I Don't Know, Who Left Me In Charge of Entitling These Chapters, Anyway?

Sure, there are books out there that are designed to boost your self esteem, but there's nothing out there about what to do after you already love yourself. So if I don't write this book, it will never exist. And I firmly believe it needs to.
The title of this book can seem kind of deceptive. Theoretically, there can only be one person who is better than everyone else. But everything is relative. Would you ever tell a man who believes his wife is the most be
