    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?

    Who Am I.

    Who am i? I can't stand This person. I can't stand who I am, what I look like, how I treat others, how I think; I can't stand any of it. Everyday I feel like a burden to everyone I come in contact with. I don't remember the last time I felt okay with myself, the last time I felt...

    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...

    Prepared

    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...

    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...

    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.
