    The other day my friend was self-hating

    hardcore, saying she doesn't like anything about her and such. I told her that it's not good to do that but she never stops. Then she says to me," Stop telling me not to self-hate! You do it all the time!" I told her to give me one example. She couldn't even tell me one example...
