I Don't Like Myself Very Much Sometimes

    Not Today

    Not much anyways. I’m good if I keep my mind occupied but as soon as I see my reflection I’m done. It’s just hard to feel like that teen inside and see that old used and abused soul staring back.

    Self Doubt

    I have days where I convince myself I'm a horrible person - that I talk about myself too much, that I don't deserve the job I have, that I am fat, that my fiance will leave me for someone prettier/smarter etc. Most of the time, I'm OK and I quite like me. But these days can...

    I didn't like the 2014 me.

    Let's all realize that we can change what's within our control in 2015. And I hope we all learn to accept and embrace what we cannot change.

    Sometimes....but This Helped

    Sometimes, I really don't like myself and who I am - but I found this article and found it really useful, even just reading it made me feel more positive, so I thought I'd share it and if it encourages just one person to try liking themselves more then I'll be happier. Hope it...

    That Insignificant Little Girl

    When a friend saw the burns on my arm she asked me why I did it, and all I could say was that I didn't like myself very much. I used to think I hated myself, but I think there's a difference between hating and not liking. Just like the subtle differences between burning and...

    I Feel So Ashamed And Abnormal...

    My life is not the same as other people in their midtwenties. There is not a day that goes by when I don't recognize this and then put pressure on myself/get angry with myself for being so weird and freak like. People judge. It's not nice to think they do but it's true. And when...

    I use to never question the way I felt about myself, the way I a carried myself, the way people looked at me....I really don't know when I started questioning my self confidence, my beauty, how smart I was. But I did start questioning that, and it made me paranoid, have anxiety...

    My Own Worst Enemy.

    What a horrible thing to say. I can't help but to hate myself even more at the fact that I've added this experience. Which is why I'm only now getting around to writing my story for it...   The reason I hate myself more, is because when the rational part of my brain kicks...

    Not Sure Who I Am..

    I'm not really sure who I am in this life yet. But I'm not very happy with whoever I am, most of the time. I don't like how I rarely stand up for myself and how I'm afraid to be myself around others. These are things I try to work on, but I don't think they are going to change...

    It's Silly

    Normally the result of other people disliking me and making it very clear that they feel that way. Just the other day, a boy was upsetting me and discriminating against me because I'm bisexual. I walked away and, stupidly, talked myself into caring about what he said. I started...
