In the process of creating our self-esteem, external factors intervene, so it can be modified over time. The ideal is that we evolve towards an improvement of this aspect and that we value and love ourselves more and more optimally and healthily.Most people have a distorted perception of themselves, which generates conflict, difficulties in relationships and suffering in general.

A farther mistake it is in him, that he represents the Galenists as such pittiful fellows, that should not know but that each corruption of the bloud is incorrigible, and [Page 13] therefore let it out. It is true, that we do hold, that it is possible for the bloud to be so vitiated, as to be incorrigible, and that one may assoon hope to see the regress from a total privation, as it restored. This hath been observed in pestilential diseases sometimes, and in sphacelated parts: and perhaps I may be allowed to reckon as such, the bloud of that person in Fernelius, Fernel. Physiolog. l. 6. c. 7. which was universally coagulated in the veins; so as to be taken out as 'twere branches of coral:River. obs. communicatae à Pachequo, obs. 46. And that Woman's in the observations of Pachequus, whose bloud in a continual fever did issue out, upon Phlebotomy, as cold as Ice, or Snow: the like to which, in the spotted fever is taken notice of, as a fatal prognostick by Petrus à Castro. Petr. à Castro, de febre malign. pag. 90. If Plempius give me leave, I would reckon in putrid fevers, that bloud to be incorrigibly depraved, which doth not coagulate, and is destitute of its fibres, Fernel. Therapent. Univ. l. 2. c. 17. Sennert. de febr. l. 2. c. 1. since Fernelius and others esteem of such as an evident testimony of the highest putrefaction. It is also true, that we do hold, that where diseases are ordinarily, or frequently curable, yet by accident from the idio-syncrasie of the patient, or some other intervening cause, the bloud may be continued in such a vitiated estate, as to be incorrigibly corrupted, and yet its essential form not lost; as in case of Cancers, Hypochondriacal and Scorbutical distempers, Scirrhosities of the Liver, Spleen, and Mesentery, Leprosies, knotted Gout, calculous indispositions, &c. I might mention other cases, but they relate not to the present controversie, and I have already said enough to shew the ignorance of this Baconist. To come nearer to the main matter; It is true, that we do hold, that in many distempers, as in the Scurvey, putrid Fever, and some others, the mass of bloud is so putrified and corrupted, that even that which is termed more stricktly Blood, is depraved sundry wayes: for, if the vessels that generate and convey the Chyle, and the Chyle it self be corrupted, 'tis impossible but that which is produced and supplied daily out of the Chyle, should participate of it pravity, and so much the more in that they flow intimately commixed in the same Arteries and Veins: But [Page 14] that in such cases we hold the Blood to be so depraved, as to have lost its formal essence totally and irrecoverably, is most notoriously false: and any man may see hence, that this Ignoramus understands not the Galenical way, but deserted it, before he had acquainted himself therewith. This be might have learned from Galen, in his Comment upon Aphor. 17. l. 2. We do hold that the blood and associated humours may come to a partial putrefaction, and yet be recovered again: and 'tis this recovery and redintegration that we design by our practice, and if we cannot effect it totally, yet that we aim at, is, to concoct the several humours, so that what there is of them that is alimentary, and agreeable to nature, may be mitified and retained, and the rest so digested, as that it may be with ease and safety ejected the body, and so the Mass of bloud regain its former lustre and amicableness: This being the grand intention of the received Method of Physick, 'tis one thing to debate whether blood-letting, practiced according to Art, (for we are not otherwise concerned in the Quarrel) be a suitable proper means to atchieve our purposes? And another, to say, that we pierce poor mans skin, and rashly throw away the support of life, out of a vain apprehension, that it is totally corrupt, and depraved of its former being, and no wise capable of being retrograde. This cannot be said without an apparent injury unto us: We know the variety and fallaciousness of colours, and by our rules, can well conjecture how far the Humours are vitiated, what may be concocted in order to the nutriment and benefit of nature, and what maturated to a convenient ejectment; And we do utterly deny the consequence of this Argument, though we grant the Assumption: Viz.
Before I come to particulars, it is necessary I tell you that in the cure of all diseases Physicians propose unto themselves sundry considerations: they regard the disease, the antecedent causes, and the symptomes which attend or will ensue thereupon either generally, or in such an individual constitution: they employ their cares to prevent some inconveniences, as well as to redress others. Some remedies they make use of because they are necessary; of some, because they are beneficial, yet may the disease ('tis granted) be cured o [...]herwise, in case the Patient have a reluctancy thereto, or for some private reasons the Physicians esteem it fitting to alter their course. Upon this account 'tis assented unto, that many distempers may be cured without Phlebotomy, which yet are ordinarily cured with it, or may be so: And herein the disagreement of Physicians, or different procedures are all according to their Art, nor is it denied but that All of them may atchieve their ends by their several Methods. So that it is a gross paralogisme for any one to conclude this or that Physician is mistaken, or takes a wrong course, because another takes or prescribes a different one. All the Physicians in Spain, France and Italy do not bleed with equal profuseness: In Germany and England some do practise more frequent Phlebotomies, than others do: and neither of the parties do erre, in case the other remaining Method be inviolately observed. It is in humane bodies as it is in the body Politick, where there is a Method of ruling, though it be carried on by several wayes [Page 136] and means; and whilst each States-man doth prudentially sway the Government, procuring peace and plenty to the subject, his conduct, though it vary from that of his Predecessour, is not to be blamed. It is not to be doubted but that many grievous distempers are cured by Nature, without the use of any remedies at all: Yet will no wise man adventure his life on such incertainties: 'tis not to be denied but some are cured with fewer Remedies than others are: But yet 'tis not prudence to put Nature upon too great a stress, or to account all means unnecessary which are not absolutely requisite, or without which the effect may (though with more difficulty, and hazard) be brought to pass. It lyeth upon the Physician therefore to pursue all those means which may secure the life of his Patient, to alleviate the disease in its course by preventing all troublesome and mitigating all dangerous symptomes, and to facilitate as well as hasten his recovery. It is not questioned but Patients have been and may be recovered of Feavers with little or no blood-letting; yet when I consider the great hazard they run in that course, the vexatious and perillous symptomes which they languish under longer and with more violence than others, I cannot approve of the practise, nor think the Physician dischargeth his duty and a good conscience in so doing: Extrema necessitas in moralibus, ut certum est, vocatur, quando est probabile periculum: and the Patient doth offend against himself, if he refuse to take a befitting course against dangers that probably are impending: and the Physician doth trespass against his neighbour, if he do not propose and practise such a course.Riolanus de circulat fang. c. xx. Anthopograph. p. 585. "I cannot (to use the words of the incomparable Riolanus) I cannot without pity to the sick, and some resentment against the Physician, read in Platerus's Observations, how sundry of his Patients were broyled and torrefied with burning Feavers, whom he never let blood. Platerus Observat. l. 2. He doth relate of himself, how he was sick of [Page 137] a most burning Feaver, yet did he never so much as let himself blood therein, albeit that it were requisite in those cases. Such are not obliged to their Doctors, but peculiarly to the Divine Providence for their recovery."
