    I have no idea why I exist,

    you guys. I feel worthless and unlovable. Like, I just wish someone could give me the feeling of being needed, being here for a purpose, not just being some random person walking this earth. I wish I meant something to someone, someone who is willing to show it to me. And at the...

    I'm just really hating myself tonight.

    I do live streams on twitch every now and then, and I just got started really. But I'm just no good with them. I feel like I'm too much of an introvert to be entertaining. Hell, I got at least 10 viewers tonight and most went to someone I was on a skype call with during the...

    I Don't Even Really Remember When...

    I don't even really remember when I began to hate myself. I must have been pretty young. I have the "normal" or "more common" things that I hate about myself. I hate my weight, hair, how much money I have, my face. Stuff like that. But I also suffer from physical problems that...

    I am constantly ignored by people,

    I would have a short conversation with someone in real life or online then NOTHING. The person just stops talking to me/blocks me/ ignores me or disappears. Online is one thing but seriously am I that boring, weird, odd that nobody will have more than a few conversations with me...

    It's Not Fair To Cry In Your Sleep.

    I hate myself. I've been in and out of therapy since I was 17 and I'm now 23. I'm afraid it's never going to go away. I've never been in a relationship with a guy before and when one shows interest in me I become a *****. I'm rude to them to turn them off, but it's not them, it's...

    I feel a burning sensation inside me,

    it's a hatred for myself. I'm forgotten about. My behavior is abnormal. I hate my body, it makes me want to throw up. I have no ambition whatsoever. I just want everything I hate to erode me away. I wish I was dead, more than anything in the world. I've grown numb, want to die...

    changing my train of thought for the last couple of years but when you live most of your life with negative thoughts it's hard to change them. So it's an inner battle with myself. I guess the negative thoughts are just easier for me to believe than the positive...

    I wouldn't say HATE because God made me,

    I could never hate one of his creations but I've been through a lot and I was always the blame for why certain things happened to me so I tend to now blame myself. Everything is always my fault in my head and it's hard to like yourself when no one else does. I wonder if I'm a...

    Disgust.

    I've always hated how I looked. I never thought I was thin enough, or that my stomach was flat enough. There was always someone else that was better. It only got worse after having a kid. I walk past a mirror, or any reflective surface, and grimace because what I see disgusts me...

    If someone were to ask me one thing I like about myself, I wouldn't be able to come up with anything. When people compliment me, I usually say thank you, but I think about how wrong they are for a long time afterwards. I want to love myself, but people have abused me for so...

    Why Hate Thyself

    Hate is a powerful word. The dictionary defines "hate" as: [The emotion of intense dislike; a feeling of dislike so strong that it demands action]. In my experience I remember doing many thing throughout the past that I disapproved of. That is right I "disapproved" of my actions...

    Overcoming Self-hatred

    I have had feelings of self-hatred as long as I remember. I was an overweight, intelligent child with glasses, teacher's pet, etc. My family and peers judged me for my weight. I turned that judgment inward. I turned to food for comfort and gained more weight. The self-hatred has...

    I hate myself soooo much.

    Like nobody understand how much I do. I hate every single inch of my body. Who would ever love me again? I'm covered in scars. Estimated scars: 480 And my stupid body thinks it good enough but I know in the back of my mind it's really not.

    I'm A Candle.

    Sometimes I feel like a candle, on a path to self-destruction. In the desperate attempt to keep the flame of life going, I'm only just stripping myself away; I'm melting in my own tears of wax which I cry. Eventually, I'll fade out into the darkness in which I spawned from.
