I Don't Like Myself

    Who Cares?

    I want to kill myself I at least want to cut myself on a daily basis. I have no one who knows me. No one wants to deal with someone crazy. Even my therapist is done with me. I hate my life and I wish I could just end it.

    I Wish I Were Someone Else

    I often wish I were someone else. I wish I had parents who love(d) me. I wish that I felt comfortable being me. I feel like I have to hide myself from everyone else. I have to watch every word I say so other people will like me. I want to be someone others like and love. My...

    Bad Childhood

    I Feel Like A Failure

    All my life I've been compared to other family members around my age. "Why can't you be more responsible like this cousin?", "Why can't you finish school like this cousin?', "Why can't you find a job and move out?" No matter what I do or accomplish, it's never good enough for...

    It's weird, but whenever I'm with friends,

    I basically look at myself from an outside sort of view. When I'm with them and I say something inappropriate or if I use a curse word, I picture myself saying it in that moment then I picture myself at home. It's so hard to explain but at home I'm a goody goody, and when I'm...

    I Don't Know Why

    I really don't know why I don't like myself, but on a daily basis, my interactions with people prove that I don't.  I won't get close to people.  I won't do social things.  I'm consistantly doubting everything I like and feel.  I think it's time I start to get...

    Well, I completely lost my post

    for some reason, and that's frustrating as hell (and reminds me of why I keep coming and going from EP). I wish I had the time and memory to write it all down again, but I don't. So I'll have to truncate it down to the nuts and bolts. I was a hyperactive kid in special...

    I'm prone to self pity

    and general stubborn gloominess. I complain about anything and everything that can be complained about. These are just aspects of me I can't change no matter how I try.

    It's a number of things, really. First of all, I never feel good when I look in a mirror. It's weird because I avoid mirrors but seek them out at the same time. I never feel beautiful and I never feel like I'm worth it. I see other's confidence and I am jealous of their self...

    I don't know why, but I always feel bad. I've always hated myself. I can never feel good because I see all the happy, upbeat people who love life, and who are always in a huge circle of friendship. I have always been kind of shy, but at one point I attempted to be like them; I...

    Hard to Explain

    I think it's hard to explain. Most people don't understand. I can't look in the mirror without thinking "you ugly ****". I can't talk to people because I feel below them. I was always treated the same. Not worth anything at all. My feelings don't matter and my thoughts...

    I really don't. All the things I used to enjoy,

    biking, swimming, skating, hiking I can't do any of it anymore because of a bad knee. I'm 23 years old on the 24th and my right knee is ruined already, how pathetic is that? I can't do the things I like anymore, I can't work and I hate every second of it. I see all my friends...

    My Characteristics: The Good And (apparent) Bad

    Tonight I find myself contemplating my personality, and how much I actually can't stand myself. I do have characteristics that I appreciate, but the ones that I hate are what I feel make my character. For instance, I have a tendency of acting one way towards a particular group...

    There Are a Lot of Us Out There

    I would give almost anything to be somebody

    else. To not be yelled at for the smallest mistake. To not have my family look at me with veiled hatred. To be anything but a failure. To have the mentality to succeed in everything I do. To be truly happy. To not hate my life.

    I Hate Living

    I do not know what to do.  There is no one I can talk to.  I have no insurance so I can not see a therapist.  I tried seeing someone at the mental health clinic, but that didn't work out.  I am unemployed, living with my parents.  They don't understand my...

    I know I'm not hideous,

    nor mentally deficient, nor excruciatingly boring. I know I'm average. But to me, average equates boring. Just because I'm not ugly doesn't mean I'm not pretty. Just because I'm not retarded, doesn't mean I'm smart. Just because I'm not boring, doesn't mean I'm fun. I can list a...

    Where to start?  I have a hard time keeping friends.  I easily make friends, but within 6 months, they have nothing to do with me.  I guess it's because I'm bluntly honest (I don't think before I speak).  I'm on Social Security because I can't work.  I...

    would be proud of. I'm not even half as strong as I once was, emotionally. I take everything to heart, and it hits harder when your depression is on the line.
