    I know, I shouldn't. Everyone should love

    themselves. But, unfortunately, I find too many faults in myself to do so. I've been conditioned to think that being black is ugly. I know it's a horrible mentality, but that's what they teach at my school. I also hate that I screw everything up with my clumsiness. And I tend...

    Goody Two Shoes Freak

    I was always that weird quiet kid who always knew the answer in school.  My family moved a lot and I was introverted so I didn't have many friends and honestly, I didn't really want any.  I hated kids my age for being stupid and cruel to each other.  I hated adults...

    I have been trying to learn not to hate myself,

    to know myself as I truly am. I found this book: http://www.peace.ca/powerofnow.htm, It really helped. I learned to stop seeing my mind-body emotional state, and my thoughts, as being my 'self'. And I learned to observe. I learned how projecting into the future causes anxiety...

    Sick Of Beind Depressed? Enjoyment Vs Pleasure

    When depressed, we turn to drugs, meaningless sex, alcohol, food full of fat and sugar, movies, video games, etc. These all give us small spikes of pleasure and do some good in lifting the gloom, but when it's over, what's left? We have less money, possibly STDs, gain weight...

    If you hate yourself, it means you have empathy. It means you're human. It means you care so much about others that you're willing to damage yourself for their sake. It means you punish yourself so cruelly every second of most every day, for the sake of those you love, and...
