Bad Day Today

I don't even know where to start. I'm not the brightest person alive. I make so many stupid mistakes that I can barely live with and people seem to rub it in or talk behind my back that I am stupid. My friends and peers will make fun of me for being stupid but why can't they see that this is my flaw? I won't say hey you are fat so why is it different to say hey you are stupid? I just want people to know that the stupid mistakes i make or people make are honest and we are, I am, just stupid. I don't even know  what to do. Its not like I can work out and get rid of the fat...I thought that going to college and getting all A's would make me smarter but I'm the same. I still make STUPID mistakes so now I have to learn to live like this. But how do I learn to forgive myself for the stupid mistakes I've made? I've tried laughing at myself and with others but deep down I want to smack my head against a wall or hide in the closet of my room so no one can see me. How do you guys do it? What do I do? Should I get therapy?

god has not given to us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of asound mind. take it

Sometimes we DO stupid things, all of us. I have a huge list of having done stupid things but you're not stupid just because you make mistakes. It happens. The fact that you have the integrity to admit to your flaws, that's definitely not a stupid-people-quality, in fact in philosophical terms it's exactly the kind of humility a smart person should possess. To the therapy part: it may help you building a more positive image of yourself. Only when you like yourself can you be good to others, and many of your mistakes and stupid moments .. will disappear.
