    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 That I Am Ugly, Stupid And Completely Worthless

    I look at myself in the mirror and i feel like dying, i swear i do. I see pretty people everywhere around me, see how they live their perfect lives! I can't pretend that I am happy with myself and i am glad with what i am having now. I know I should be grateful, i know i am. I am...

    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...

    Binge Eating No Willpower

    I get so sad and angry I can't stop and maybe I'm a hypocrite but sometimes I can't help and pay attention to what people say. I hate how this is destroying my life I hate how lonely and pathetic I'am I can't stand myself

    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.

    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

    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...

    Envy Me, I Found Out I Am Already For The Holidays

    Yesterday was my birthday. It went about as bad as they always do. I'm not great about my birthdays or some aspects of the holidays. I would like them to go better, but I just can't seem to make it happen. To top this off , it aggravates my wife intensely. I just don't need...

    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...
