    Thank you for clarifying the difference between selfhelp and Mussar. What I love about Mussar is getting some more direction which way to go, it increases my enthousiasm. Also it helps to find the real root of the problem, rather than only addressing what can be seen from the outside. Mussar is also different from RET, rational emotional therapy that searches out thoughts that are disfunctional.
    Ethical vs. psychological: e.g. to work on kindness has an effect on relationships. Someone who is unwilling to be kind probably has difficulties to make friends. He / she can learn how to make friends, but the real problem may be at an ethical level.
    On the other hand, I value that psychology restrains itself from imposing moral values upon anyone because of free will and the right to have a belief system that may be different.
