When I answer questions of a personal nature, readers often get in touch with their own thoughts. So, we have a weekly feature, Team Oracle, whereby each Friday (with the question asker's permission) we open up a question to all of you to answer too. Then, the following Friday, I'll post a selection of the best answers, alongside my own reply.
ANYONE can join in so, if you'd like to, please email your response to the following question, in no more than 250 words, to before midnight Thursday 30th May.

I've got a friend who has a very low self-esteem. What can I do to level up his self-esteem, to show him that he is not the loser he thinks he is? Florence, Canada.

Look forward to seeing your replies.
The Oracle
