I Can't Stand Myself

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 190 People

    I've spent the past few years of my life trying

    to really get a grasp of what kind of person I want to be and I've been trying my hardest to strive for it but occasionally I keep making these extremely inconsiderate mistakes that keep me from keeping to my ongoing potential. It's times like this where I can't get out of a...

    I think I've reach underground.

    I have already touched rock bottom and somehow I've been able to reach deeper. I guess the limit is not when you can't stand your true self, but when even your family can't stand you. When expressing your opinion on anything is wrong for them, and ultimately their actions...

    I feel happy a lot, and I think there's nothing

    wrong with me, but at random moments I hate myself. As a child I would never get like this, but it's been happening more and more recently. A while ago, I was forced to come out to my grandma and she made me feel like ****, saying that if I really loved her I would've told her...

    Like Me

    If you are like me you like solitude.  You find yourself hiding every day from the people who who view you as an outcast.  You hate your body, your style, the way you walk, even the way you breathe.  You run from being social, resent those who are and hate the...

    Why Am I So Ugly?

    I seem to be getting uglier every year. I have days where I can't stand the sight of myself if I catch my refletion in a window or whatever. My family say I look good (they would) but lately I can't even see ANY redeeming features. I try everything. I work out, I eat good, but it...

    I can't stand myself

    that I am fat and ugly. I always look and the mirror and cry. I feel unwanted and unloved. All these skinny girls with their hot boyfriends. I tried becoming bulimic, and that made me feel worse. I try to cut, but I felt like I would be letting all my close friends and family...

    This is a shoutout to anyone else

    who can't stand having themselves posted anywhere. I hate my body, I hate that I can't go anywhere without being paranoid about being picked on. Anyone else have something to say?

    I Can't Stand Myself

         I will first tell you how I used to be because my past makes my pain sharper. I used to be perfect. I liked my life, I was the top student of the class, my teachers loved me, I won competitions, I was fit and played tennis almost every day. I didn't...

    Sometimes it's best to look at the ugly and be ready to make the best decision. I challenge you to look at a hypothetical and try some new thinking, no automatic judgment and share a real thought. Here's two quick warm ups 1. Tina the teenager just broke up her boyfriend and...

    Screwed Up

    I'm the most ******-up person I have ever known. Sure, from the outside, it may look like my problems are trivial (and I agree that I could have WAY worse ones), but on the inside, I am a ******* mess. I wish I could erase my memory until it's clean.
