How does one learn to love ones self

I had daily verbal abuse my Dad always running me from the age of 7 and I now have no confidence very low self esteem and I think it has rubbed off on my son. It hurts to see him suffer in anyway. I feel its a bit late for me but would love to give my boy some self loving tips.

He had another out burst Friday and got locked up for the evening. I worried my guts out because I didn't hear the full story but he's feeling awful now. He had a few can of strong beer. I warned him it doesn't agree with our family but he drank anyway but I think it has shaken him up and promises not to touch the stuff again.

Dodo, sorry about your son but hopefully we all learn by the mistakes we make. I'm sure you were beside yourself with anxiety. I hope that things settle down and that you start feeling better as well. I'm sure this plays into you not feeling good lately.

Take care and stay well.
