I Hate My Body

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,302 People

    What I see in the mirror physically sickens me

    sometimes. It makes me want to vomit. I hold an undeniable hatred for my body. I can't even bear to look at myself sometimes.

    I feel angry because not just

    because I hate my body, but because I can't really discuss it with friends. Disliking one's looks is not PC (Politically Correct). I express some discomfort with myself and the friend will shoot back at me, "No, you're beautiful!" which is an empty compliment. I have one friend...

    I hate every single inch of my body every day I

    cry and stress over it! I try not to care but I can't not! Everything would be so much better if I was confident I dread even leaving my house 😫 just wish I could have a nice figure face and hair so people would want me instead of my friends

    Repulsive.

    I am not happy with the way I look at all. I hate my body so much, there are seriously times where I just want to take a knife to every imperfection I have, and just cut it all up and destroy it for good. It really hurts to look in the mirror sometimes... I disgust myself...

    I hate when people don't understand

    why exactly you hate your body, I hate when you can't tell them either /;

    Short, curvy, voluptuous,

    hourglass. That's me. Sounds ideal to some, but the stick figure look is all anyone pays attention to around here. I have never been comfortable with my figure. I feel like I want to hide away from the world sometimes because of it.

    I think it's pretty natural to think like this

    with a mother that always mention how big I am. Other people say that I'm not fat at all, but my family (relatives) thinks otherwise. Therefore, I can't help but think so too. Now I'm pretty much fearful of showing my torso to others.

    So... I went clothes shopping

    for bras today for an agonising hour of torture. I put loads of clothes into the basket. When it came to trying the bras on I completely broke down. As I stared at my reflection, all I saw was fat, ugly horror. I felt sick just looking at my reflection. I cried, silently while...

    Every time I look at myself in the mirror,

    a jarring sense of disassociation and disbelief strikes me: "That's not me. That can't be me..." What follows is a cruel realization that I will always be stuck in my body.

    Ugh my body is so flat

    and barely curves at all! I just don't look good and my chest things are just so small, when I look at myself naked in the mirror I get so sad! Other girls have lots of curves and are really attractive but not me 😞. I'm just too skinny!

    Everything was okay until “she" walked in.

    As I watched her cross the gym floor, my stomach sunk. I could feel burning jealousy course through my veins like acid with each heart beat. You know this girl. She is the one you watch from afar with a strange combination of jealousy, self-loathing, and begrudging admiration...

    Every time I try on clothes,

    I look in the mirror and see nothing but a girl who is insecure about every part of her body. I try my best to love my body, but I can't.

    I hate my body, I feel

    so fat and then I just eat even more to make myself feel better, its a vicious circle of eat, hate, eat, hate, eat etc. I wish I could love my body and I am trying to burn off weight and workout but I keep eating when I feel sad ;-;

    Trapped

    The title says it all and I'm sure, if you're reading this, that you feel the same way. I feel trapped in my own body- like the beautiful girl that I feel on the inside is not what I see when I look in the mirror. I'm 6 foot 2, and likely still growing, as I'm only 18. I have no...

    My body looks like a child's,

    even though I'm well into my twenties. It makes me feel so unfeminine and undesirable.

    Sometimes, when I take the time to admire a

    really pretty, curvy girl I wish that I could be lovelier. My bra size is 32A and I weigh 95lbs, 5'4. I guess I am petite, but my shoulders naturally hunch a bit. Sure there are others my age who are as small as me, but I am lanky and gangling compared to them. All I can do is...
