I Am So Angry. And Terrified.

I am so angry that life is so damn hard and I have to try so hard to be positive every single freaking day of my life. I don't know how to fix things. I know what the problem is but I'm scared that the answer they tell me won't work. Then what will I do???

I need to love me. I need to accept me. But how? Is it by doing "loving" actions? Will that teach my soul/spirit/whatever that I am worthwhile? Or by reciting positive affirmations forever? Or by forcing myself to believe in Jesus or Kwan Yin? Or by choosing not to care or love people anymore? Maybe if I become (or pretend to become) a love addict teacher I could learn everything I need to know, maybe that will help....

Wow. Awesome. Belief is important but requires new proof. Dont confuse making mistakes with proof that you aint worthy of love. More later.

thanks for sharing

I hear you. I've struggled with self hate as well. I've tried the affirmations, etc. A professional such as a psychiatrist or counselor is my most effective help so far. The money is the main issue for people. I get it. But what's more important than my mental health?

that's true...and counselling does help somewhat but some places don't have many therapists etc...have you checked out a book called Feeling Good by Dr Burns? A therapist recommended it years ago and it's saved my life a few times
