I guess I don't mean to say that all closeted gay people or every ex-gay has low self-esteem. But from everything I've learned, self-esteem problems are the reason why so many people are unhappy with their lives.
It's also the reason so many people have self-destructive habits like alcohol abuse, drug abuse, unsafe sex, unhealthy diets, wreckless driving and other dangerous habits and addictions.
Low self-esteem contributes to health problems, financial problems, religious fanaticism, racism, sexism, homophobia, divorce, spouse abuse, child abuse, child molestation, animal abuse, uncontrolled rage, suicide, robbery, rape, murder, and a list of other problems.
So basically low self-esteem contributes to a lot of unhappiness in the world.
I'm not an expert on this, but I have read a lot from experts on the subject over the years. It seems to make sense.
Out of the closet and into the streets!
