Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One of the big structural myths involves maintenance of self esteem.  It involves experienced basic human emotions, what we have internalized from our culture of origin and how we relate to society at large and more.  People will and do go to great lengths to feel good about themselves.  My guess would be that a problem in this area is usually a component for one who seeks help from a professional.
