Glynn Harrison

Glynn Harrison is a psychiatrist, academic, speaker and author. In his recent book 'Ego Trip' he asks why after decades of trying to feel good about ourselves we still long for significance and meaning? Why are we so in thrall to other people's approval and energised by their praise? The self-esteem movement marketed the idea that it's because we don't love ourselves enough. Glynn believes it is because we have been trying to love ourselves too much. It is hard to know what you are worth if you have no sense of who you are and what you are for. The relentless pursuit of self worth for its own sake simply drives us back onto a treadmill of achievement and status hunger. Authentic self worth needs to be discovered as part of a broader narration of personal identity embedded in a sense of meaning and purpose.
