I Hate Myself Sometimes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,042 People

    Trying to leave this tendency to come down upon

    myself when something does not go well for one reason or another. I know it all comes down to self-esteem and it's hard to build up after so many years of it being low. I can love/respect everyone else, but never myself.

    I hate myself right now.

    I'm so stupid. why do I even try? I mean it's not like I'm worth anything. I don't even understand why he would love me. All I do is mess everything up. Everything I've ever had that was great I've always ruined. I'm just so scared and I just don't want him to be mad. I just don...

    Welp... Here's another mental breakdown.

    . Today isn't the best day... I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth when I just looked in the mirror and realized how ugly I am. All my flaws. Hating myself because I will never have the perfect body, and yes.. There is a perfect body. My friends don't even really even like...

    Why Am I Like This Now ??

    I am starting to change ... I'm not that happy , cheerful person I used to be . Instead I'm the exact opposite . My friends are slowly pushing me away .. They don't even acknowledge my presence anymore . Maybe it is my fault , I should pretend to be happy right ? I should put on...

    So I was talking to this girl

    There are days when I won't be able to do

    anything but feel. (I say only "feel" because I can't quite find the words. I feel bad about myself and everything else, but not really. If emotion were water, on these days I'd feel just enough not to be empty, and at the same time too much but not quite full.) I call them...

    I sometimes hate myself

    because I'm a lesbian. I was bullied really badly when I was younger because people suspected me. Now it's a lot more accepted at my school, but I still feel ashamed. I can't change myself, I can't hide myself, but sometimes it's hard to embrace that I'm different.

    I hate myself. But I smile an laugh.

    I donn't want people to know I'm unhappy. The people in my school are judgmental. If I said I'm not happy, they think I'm depressed. Life seems to have a lot of downs then ups right now 😔

    I literally was just crying my gut out (to the

    point where i was coughing and choking on nothing) and shouting how much I hate myself. Ugh it's getting unbearable. There is only so long I can take this abuse...I think I'll have to look into therapy. I can't believe how much picking on myself hurts.

    I think everyone does sometimes.

    But then, I think that if I had the opportunity to change anything, I wouldn't because one little fix could change everything about yourself. Sometimes I don't like me, but there's a bunch of things I do like about myself. So I have to focus on those things rather than those I...
