I Have A Very Negative View Of Myself

    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...

    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...

    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.  ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
