    I realize it's time to stop.

    There is no peace, love, or joy in negativity.

    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 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...

    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.

    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.
