    It's a very unfortunate character trait :/ I

    don't find myself at all attractive, and I'm pretty sure I'm an ***-hole XD

    I don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    Nobody knows this, but I have serious issues

    right now. I am battling anorexia. Although I'm not super skinny, I still deal with it. I see myself as too big. I've gone up to a week and a half without eating trying to lose weight. Nothing could be worse than hating myself as much as I do.

    I Think I'm Pretty.

    But I can't really think of anything else I have going for me. I'm very shy, not particularly skilled at anything other than maybe writing short stories, I'm kinda lazy, and I think I'm really boring. I don't talk much, so I'm generally ignored once people realize there really...

    An Understatement

    You know I always feel that whenever i say I have a negative view of myself, it always feels like an understatement. I mean really, I could not be anymore vague on the whole idea of being self-hating? Man, it makes me laugh because no one can fathom the level of hatred I hold...

    A Piece Of Trash...

    Ugly, disgusting, worthless, untalented...these are the words I use to describe myself. Pretty much between the ages of five and 17 I was described as this by everyone around me so this became my identity. I knew the ugly thing must have been true because it is reinforced by the...

    Very

    I dislike almost everything about my physical appearance. I feel I will never be pretty, or feminine, or worthy. I'm not sure exactly where this view got started, but it has been reinforced by other people for years. When I look in the mirror, I see fat and ugly.

    But I'm Better Then Some!

    Some people just SERIOUSLY hate themselves, and I find that really sad to be honest. Sure, I've got a few negative things to say about myself but any normal human being does because no one is perfect! Including me! I'm far from the poster child of perfection and I don't mind that...

    I have approximately 7 and a half hours before I have to get up and I just can't sleep. I'm tired but my mind won't let me drift off. I'm too busy thinking about all the things I don't like about myself and how I'm not much use to anybody. The pit of my stomach hurts from hating...

    Warped Perceptions

    .If one hundred people like me and one doesn't then I have a tendency to focus on that...ignoring all the positive messages I get from the majority. I have had what feels like a long hard time of it this life...and it is hard for me to accept praise or feel good about anything...

    It's so easy to create a list of everything I

    hate about myself. I filled up a page in minutes. It's a lot more difficult to make a list of good things. Especially since many if the things I know people say about me are contradicted by my negative attributes list. Some days I like myself okay. Other days I don't...

    Trying To Over Come It

    How do you undo close to 20 years of verbal, emotional, and physical abuse?   I mean, not all of it is my own doing.. you get told that your fat, ugly and worthless and you start to believe it don't you.  What I learnt, was that I was my own worse enemy.  ...

    A Series Of Missed Opportunities

    Ugh. Such a long, involved story to tell. My mother was twenty one years old when she died. I was two months old. I spent my childhood being raised by my mother's mother, who hated me. My grandmother died when I was 15. I was then left to fend for myself. I got an...
