Ii am very open for nsa fun or ongoing fun.
Please be on the west side too. M4mw or m4w m4mw I am a nice seeking boy that likes to have threesomes or put on a show. I am married but waiting to have a little fun. As my anger and hurt fades away with time, there is something that won't.
There are always fireworks. Trust me, I know. I know how it feels to have a someone. To be in love. Let me clarify that. What can I say. Geometry is my sworn enemy. And I knew just about everything there was to know about Dune Island. I knew, for instance, where to get the spiciest low-country boil The Swamp and the sweetest oysters Fiddlehead. Finding the most life-changing ice cream cone was an easy one. You went to The Scoop, which just happened to be owned by my parents. And I definitely knew every boy in my high school.
Most of us had known one another since we were all at the Little Sea Turtle Play School on the north end of the island. Or at least, I thought I knew. I knew exactly what to expect of the season. It was going to be just like the summer before it, and the summer before that.
Every night after dinner, Sam, Caroline, and I would call around to find out where everyone was hanging that night. Rinse salt water out of hair. This was why I was trying hard not to yawn as I pedaled down Highway I was headed for the bonfire on the South Shore.
One thing that kept me alert was the caravan of summer people driving their groaning vans and SUVs just a little too weavily down the highway. Either way, I was relieved when I swooped off the road and onto the boardwalk. I turned with a smile. In the next instant, of course, I remembered—this was our new normal. Sam and Caroline were no longer just my best friends. As of two Saturdays earlier, that was. Because the Sam-and-Caroline thing?
It was really no surprise at all. We even joked about it. Inevitably, Sam would respond with another ponytail tug, Caroline would retaliate with a tickle, and the whole song and dance of denial would start all over again.
But now it had actually happened. Sam and Caroline had become a Couple. Sam and Caroline were inside the bubble. Still, Sam and Caroline were sweetly worried about my third-wheel self. And they were clearly giddy over their fresh-hatched love. So I was trying to be supportive. Which meant quickly hoisting my smile back up at the sight of them looking all cute and coupley on the boardwalk. Caroline caught my disappointment. Of course she did.
I was starting to feel like a fish in a bowl. So why did I feel this little twinge of hurt? And Sam and I had a regular ritual of going to The Swamp for giant buckets of crawfish that were strictly boycotted by Caroline.
The girl pretty much lived on fruit, nuts and seeds, and supersweet iced tea. But ever since Sam and Caroline had gotten together, a kernel of insecurity had been burrowing into the back of my head. All I wanted to do was shake it off. This is stupid , I scolded myself. All that matters is that Sam and Caroline still love me and I love them. I sighed the tiniest of sighs. He hopped lightly from the boardwalk onto the sand and headed south.
Caroline hooked her arm through mine and we followed him. I ordered myself to stop obsessing and just be normal; just be with my friends. Which meant, if there was a keg at this party, it would take approximately seventeen seconds for the information to get to my mom. Luckily, Caroline shook her head. By now, the sun had been swallowed up by the horizon, leaving an indigo sky with brushstrokes of fire around its edges.
Against the deep blue glow, my friends looked like Chinese shadow puppets. All I could see were the shapes of skinny, shirtless boys loping about and girls with long hair fanning out as they spun to music that played, distant and tinny, from a small speaker. But even in silhouette I could recognize many of the people.
It was easy to spot impossibly tall Sam. He tossed my firewood on top of the pyre, then waved off the laughter that erupted when most of the sticks tumbled right back down into the sand. I laughed too, and expected the same from Caroline.
She was one of those girls who laughed—no, guffawed —constantly. But now she was silent. So silent, I could swear she was holding her breath. And even in the dusky light, I could see that her heart-shaped face was lit up. Her eyes literally danced and her lips seemed to be wavering between a pucker and a secret smile.
I looked away quickly and gazed at the waves. The moon was getting brighter now, its reflection shimmering in each wave as it curled and crashed. But before I could get really zen, I felt an umph in my middle, and then I was airborne. Landon Smith had thrown his arms around my waist, scooped me up, and was now running toward the waves. Landon stopped short of tossing me full-on into the surf. He just plunked me knee-deep into the waves.
Since I was wearing short denim cutoffs and of course no shoes, this was a bit of an anticlimax. I looked around awkwardly. Was I supposed to shriek and slap at Landon in that cute, flirty way that so many girls do? After a lifetime of tininess, I was allergic to being cute. Over my favorite dark cutoffs, I was wearing a white camisole with a spray of fluttery gauze flowers at the neckline.
And instead of my plain old gold hoop earrings, I was wearing delicate aqua glass dangles that brightened up my slate-blue eyes. Or so my sister Sophie had told me. And because everyone was staring at me, their smiles fading just a bit. I felt heat rush to my face. I wanted to turn back toward the ocean, to breathe in the cloudy, dark blue scent of it and let salt mist my cheeks. But that would only make everyone think I was really annoyed, or worse, fighting back tears.
What I was feeling was tired. I might have eaten the cream from the cookies as well. My brain was buzzing with caffeine and sugar. It was sighing at the prospect of another familiar bonfire. Another same old summer. A whole new round of nothing new. Except for this restlessness , I thought with a frown. I dreamed up my very first ice cream flavors, and some of them were even pretty tasty. I graduated from an A cup to a B cup. And I was thrilled to have three months to bum around with Sam and Caroline.
But this summer already felt like day-old bread. I shook my head again and remembered one of those first ice cream flavors: It was this bit of inner chipperness that finally made me laugh out loud. Because me channeling Mary Poppins was about as realistic as Caroline singing opera. And life was not ice cream. Who was I kidding? Nothing was going to change.
They could remember only that they need to go to meet teacher and i almost not graduated but they cannot remember what i did wrong or even care anymroe about what i did and it just doesnot matter anymore. Well, time passed, my parents forgive and forgot and i think your parents will be the same, they are too busy working.
Those bad grades or bad behaviors are not matter anymore. So, i suggest you to do like this when u face some trouble. Please thinking of urself in future, maybe next week, next month, next year,next 10 year… how this trouble will affect ur life in those time, if u lie to ur parents make u hurt now, how it will affect u in next 10 years and how it will affect them.
Is there anyway to fix it. Did u try to says sorry to her yet? We had difference hobby but same way of thinking, i suppose. I totally envy young Thai nowaday that people have more openmind about manga, animation and games. Easier to find friends with same interest. If you are not happy with this group, try to join another one until you find one. Lastly, I love Kuudere and i consider that i am one, too. O So, try to love yourself and forgive yourself before you will lose 15 years like me.
I just try to practise to not hate myself now, too. I am a fat ASS never been beautiful my whole life…….. Everybody says to me that I am good natued and I cook good and I am a good student but i dont see it because I hate my self……..
The thing is that I think that if anybody is going to marry me he is not going to be happy because of my appearence…….. I see a very dark and sad Life ahead of me………………May be its because I am very materialistic and i dont see good in people Idont know………………Please someone help me……………Sometimes I wonder why didn;t God make me like those perfect bimbos I wish I was Perfect and not self loathing and depressed for eating all the time………….
Help me Iam drowning. No one bothers to tell us that there are far worse things in the world than being fat. Yet the burden of changing our bodies for the sake of appealing to men falls heavily on us women. I live in west Africa now. Here fat women are regarded as beautiful. I hope my poem helps you. I realize now that whether I lose weight or not, I wills still live a happy life. This is a revolutionary thought. I am 19 female from India….
I am going through a hard time in my life…I wanted to become a doctor…. I loved the noble profession…. But from the very beginning i hated studies…. I had an internal hidden stress may be due to studies…. After completing my 12 class i dropped a year for competitive exam to get seat in medical college…. I am in relationship where my bf dominates me and never puts any effort into it…i wanna leave him bt he was my serious crush from childhood and now i got him after 7 years….
The world and is way bigger than you can imagin and full of people you will never see. People are there, and they are waiting to meet you. If you feel fat or lazy or fat and lazy go do somthing about it. If you want to change your life , Start today, tomorrow is not a day of the week. My heart has been super glued and duct taped and shattered over and over- but i am going to put it back to gether a keep on doing.. All you beautiful people are awsome and I love you all the same.
Move your feet if you dont like what you see, and your veiw will change. I have friends but I have trouble trusting them, I rather keep problems my to myself. So every night I cry and compare myself to a garbage, actually I feel like a garbage and I also wish that I was never born. I search the web on how to love myself and the first step was: Hi Anne… First of all, what a brave and courageous girl you are. Your feelings are entirely valid. But you have to know just how meaningful you are to this world.
The past is gone. The past exists nowhere but in your mind. You are more than capable of forgiving your parents and loving yourself.
Trust me, you are positively radiant. You are NOT garbage. You are worth so, so much. If you can, tell it to yourself every single day, without fail. You are worthy and beautiful and special and unique — and you were born for a reason!! Fulfill it whatever way your heart tells you. Love with as much of yourself as possible.
Love people, your parents, everyone you walk past. Just feel your heart radiate as you go by. It might take some practice. But never allow yourself to hate… You are more beautiful and special than anything hate can offer…. You can just sit or lie down, and then focus on your breathing. Feel what it feels like to simply breathe and be alive.
Anne, Accepting the past is difficult. There are many events in my life that I cannot explain why they happened. I try to look at reality. The truth that Jesus Christ did what he did and that the creator of all loves me no matter what, gives me peace and hope. We are eternal beings, here on earth for a short time.
Soon, our tears will be wiped away forever. Now is the time to make a difference for others! We should love our neighbors like ourselves. So, we should love ourselves, so we can love our neighbor. I feel the hurt in you and I love you, my neighbor. Thanks for your advice. Recently, i have been feeling so extremely low.
From the ages of 11 to 22 roughly. I was bullied all through school told i was worthless, ugly, scary, weird, smelly, you name it i was called it. Was always picked last for sports, tall, awkward, tried to hide my perceived ugliness in make up and often wore too much, which made the bullies pick on me even more they used to even hit me and pull my hair while calling me names like ugly witch…Once I left school I then got into a violent relationship with a guy 12 years older than me.
He hit me and called me all the names under the sun including the familiar ugly and stupid. Was with him nearly 3 years. Married at age 22 to another guy he is 10 years older. Still together but he is heartless and unloving sometimes.
We have one daughter. I love her more then anything and she gives me reason to carry on. However she too, is now being bullied, by the children of the monsters that picked on me back in my high school days. Just yesterday they all picked on her, calling her ugly, fat, stupid, tramp, all the names I used to be called.
It hurt me incredibly and it made me ill all day today. Seeing my beautiful baby go through what I did makes me feel so horrible inside. I tell her how lovely she is and how she is worthy of so much love and respect…but I feel it will impact her life as it has mine. Oh love, hearing your story makes my heart ache.
I know that just like you, your daughter is sooooooo beautiful, too. Keep loving her and showing her what it means to love — including how to love herself! That is the greatest defense we can cultivate and share with one another. Because if you have love, you have everything.
I know how terrible the world can be… It can hurt you so badly. But only if you let it. Never let anyone or anything stop you from loving with all your heart.
You, sitting right there, are absolutely gorgeous. I played varsity soccer and I was bench most of season and that brought my self esteem even lower. My grades are shit 2. I hate my life so bad. You will be so successful, I am sure because you care about your succeed. I repeat it again dont worry, you will be a great man one day. Everyday at school is like a raging war of anxiety attacks.
I got bullied in Elementary, and I came to a conclusion: This and alot of unmentioned reasons are why I hate myself. I disapline myself for popping pimples by locking myself in my room. I just needed a vent. Thanks to anyone who cared to listen.
I will try to live a peaceful life. Hi everyone, I too hate myself for a lot of things. Like one time a friend arranged that i got to their house, and her mum made food as well, but last minute i backed out. You are not horrible at all!! Not in the slightest!! But trust me, we are our own worst enemies and critics.
We can judge ourselves for the tiniest things that no one else even notices or cares about. Just keep being yourself. You are absolutely beautiful and wonderful the way you are… truly… You say that you hate yourself because you lack organisation, commitment, and courtesy. So do many of us! But in truth, those are things you can work on and improve at. One thing you can practice is doing lots of nice, altruistic things for other people. Your family, strangers, a teacher. You can even make a list.
Buying a coffee for the person behind you in line at Starbucks counts! Take all the things you wish someone would do for you and do them for others. Sometimes it takes a little getting beyond ourselves and our little worlds we create in order to feel connected and loved and meaningful. But we can do it. And you can do it, too. You know im 12 and i look 15 or 16 and i am really tall but you know what? I have a great life, I have parents who love me more than they love theirselves, I have my smart sister who almost always knows every answers of my questions and always supports me in everything I do, I hv the best friends I could ever have in this world.
I have the perfect life anyone can have in my age, yet at the same time, I often feel that I hate myself. Every little mistakes that I made only make me hate myself more.
I knew u would never work it out well!! I never told my parents abt this because I dont want them to worry. Thank you so muh for this article, it really opens my eyes to see that I dont need to damn myself and have negative thoughts abt myself for every little mistaks or imperfection that I make.
Hi m a 23 year old girl living in a conservative country. I m v beautiful n smart. I was a topper all through my life but still I feel empty. My father is n abusive husband he has aIways dominated me n my mom. My entire childhood n still I feel DT m under a house arrest. My dad has controlled my life entirely. I was never allowed to go out or even talk to my guy cousins or make male friends.
I was not allowed to even look at boys directly. I never made friends n dun believe in friendship cz everybody has hated my guts I was v pretty n intelligent n won every competition of drawing studies painting or beauty etc. Which was y everyone hated me as I was perfect.
Many guys now want me BT I was in 2 relationships n mind it dese r basically d only guys I hv talked to n befriended. Both of them dominated me again. They dun allow me to make friends, extremely possessive n jealous. I m marrying one if them. My dad hates me cz I crossed d line BT accepted my bf cz he is from a v good family. So u can c d contradictions.
Despite being perfect m feeling d same as above people. I hate my life n myself. I have tried to commit suicide twice. I dunno what I wanna do in my life. Whatever career m pursuing its cz of d burden of being perfect. I always feel out of place n lonely. I think I m different n awkward. I think like a loser always as I never take compliments seriously though I hv been always getting them cz I think I dun deserve them.
My bf whom I m supposed to get married to next year is a party animal n outgoing. I on d other hand m n introvert n very emotional. I dun drink or smoke hv always followed every god damn rule in my life. Everybody thinks I m boring n belong to 19 the century. I recently failed in d toughest exam of my country. M completely destroyed n I need help. Cannot go to a doctor cz I dun hv money. Hi, I have struggled with self worth for 31 years. I finally liked me. I was going to college. Maybe I tried to compensate and never was completely healed and why I so easily fell back to these feelings.
Wow… Honestly I found the comments rather depressing. I mean if they have nothing else to live for than putting other people down, then they are stuck, while we have a chance to fly. Yeah, I know, freaky right? I mean I hated myself for a long time, for being different, but u know what?
These people that focus on putting others down will get nowhere in life, and secretly they know it. It s people like us, the freaks, geeks, and weirdos that will run this country, and have done so before. I know that expressing yourself this way, venting as is, is overall good for you to get it of your chest, and help you let go of things.
But at the end of the day, the only person that can change your life is you. Wauw I know the post is from ages ago. But for a seventeen year old I think your style of thinking is amazing. And though I am way older I really feal supported by your last sentence. Thank you so much for your post. I hate posts like this. Starting off on that foot means that the rest of the article is also inapplicable to me and generally seems to be rephrasing CBT and making it look like some revolutionary technique credited to the Firestones alone, which could not be further from the truth.
Hey, i rather not mention my name. I have experienced bullying from age Everyday these voices of the bullies haunt me day after day. One day i finally found the perfect guy, i know it may sound strange coming from a 17 year old girl.
I was myself around him , for once i felt like myself like i was free. So i ended up pushing him away. Today after reading this little article i realized i have to try to get the real me out, to try to get him back, and to leave the negative me behind.
It may be a struggle to do but thanks to you i believe it can be done. I would like to point out, though, that people can boost those positive or negative feelings. The only thing that brings me back to life and helps me feel relaxed with people is alcohol. I feel content with alcohol and I can have a laugh and connect with people — no problems. My parents have never shown much love, mainly disapline and money orientated. If my parents brought me up the way they did and this is what I am because of it, then I guess this is what I have to man up and face.
I have to admit this article has got me thinking that maybe I am not the only one with that destructive inner voice problem. Thanks for putting that worry out of my mind.
Besides the article, the comments have helped me immensely to realise that it is okay to have these problems in the first place as long as you fight it and not drown in despair. They refused to acknowledge the problems I had with myself brushing it aside as attention seeking behavior. As a result I had stopped confiding in my mom who used to be my bestie as I used to and kept of my problems to my self.
But in reality this only seemed to be fodder to the inner critic and the self loathing escalated. This kept me from making friends as well in fear of being perceived as damaged. But finally I am in a place where I no longer withhold my problems if I have any. I open up to my best friends thankfully I have made three even if I still have difficulties with my parents.
I am saddened to learn so many of you are self loathing out there. I am 31 years old, have a job, an apartment and a wonderful fiance. I happen to be pretty and thin and most people accept me at this point. I too have been bullied through out elementary and middle school. Those experiences resulted in extreme social anxiety. I used to base my self worth on my appearance and sometimes still do at times, but have learned my low self esteem has absolutely nothing to do with my appearance.
My self esteem is attributed to many experiences of ridicule and childhood bullying. I was raised by loving parents, but both of them suffered with addictions. Now, as an adult I know we should not look to external factors to dictate our self esteem and self worth.
I still, to this day suffer with social anxiety and what people think of me and how they perceive me etc. In looking into my issues, it is not them who I am concerned with though. I am the one who is judging and critizing myself when I am out with friends or social settings. They are not judging me the way I think they do. I am trying to avoid my own self critic, and therefore tend to choose to opt out of social events.
The worst part about doing that is that I then feel super guilty and mad at myself for not being normal enough to just go out and have fun. I then self loathe as a result of opting out as well. It seems you cant win when you try to prevent these feelings. My poor fiance has suffered through many of my social anxiety and panic attacks. If he tells me we are going to his parents for dinner, I tend to have a meltdown pretty fast.
Even if we are going out with friends, I have to punish and berate myself and hate myself for a good few hours before I go out. BUT I do know listening to our instincts, and our true selves can set us free. If you realize you are afraid of yourself and do not trust yourself enough to enjoy life then please do seek help.
Your life was not meant to live in fear and self hate. Each day take steps to do the things that make you happy. The only person that can change how you feel is you.
So work on convincing yourself you are worthy. Ultimately your opinion is the one that matters. Do not look to others to build you up. They will never be able to heal your wounds. I would just like to add that all of you possess a commendable quality!! The ability to be vulnerable and share your stories with strangers shows a tremendous amount of courage and bravery. Most people hide their insecurities and pretend to be okay. You all were all brave enough to share your stories and will now be helping many people because you chose to speak up about having low self esteem.
For that alone, you are a quality human being who is worthy and deserving: I have trouble making friends and being friends with people. Before I made friends and lost almost every single one of them save for one and now I honestly cannot seem to make any friends at all. I have this deep rooted fear of other people hating me and this has strangely been true in all past relationships. So I guess I maintain my distance from anyone, am polite but also cold and am mean to people who try to get close to me in any way.
I hate feeling stupid and inadequate and I feel that I am way dumber or mentally underdeveloped than other people my age. In public, it is so difficult for me now to interact with people, sometimes to even form coherent sentences.
I screw up or bore people. I also have a habit of comparing myself to every single person around and overanalysing every single detail. I go over the most trivial thing over and over again in my head with extremely negative, pessimistic thoughts. So everything, especially the way I present myself to other people, including family members, makes me hate myself to the core.
Jeez, I feel like I wrote this. This all makes perfect sense to me. I have suffered from intense feelings of not being good enough my entire life. I dont seem to be aware of the thoughts though so i find it difficult to dispute them etc.
They are very self sabotaging thoughts. They allow me stay stuck where I am and not try for success of any kind. Kind of like a battered dog that no longer will move for fear of being hit. I feel sad just writing this. I want to change this pattern and rid myself of these thoughts but not sure how. I have tried CBT and found it not to be very useful.
I am a very confused person; too indecisive. But i knew it was merely my luck; especially in the latter and i felt completely useless. I cant have myself sit and study for some reason! I vile my time looking for solurions for this confusion i feel in life! Then i feel extremely guilty about it! I know id make an amazing doctor- its my passion. But what d hell am i doing- running away — feeling lost — ignoring my problems- watching movies and spending time on FB instead!
If someone can help me — it will be great — any advice is welcome …. Im glad it deters from blaming my parents. Im not sure where, or when this started in my life.
I know im tired of feeling like a dweeb. Im very sick of my inner voice calling me horrible names. Then when i do get my wish and have many friends, my inner voice tells me what great people my friends are for allowing me to hang out with them.
That they feel sorry enough for me to let me be part of their group. I am 53 years old and extremely shy. I have s of friends all across the US because people truly like me. I still feel unworthy of their friendship. I even heard myself tell my friends and aquaintences that i didnt and dont expect good treatment. That its ok to be mean or rude to me. I know its wrong now, and i want to be happy. Im 19 and I have always struggled with my appearance. In my eyes I am disgusting, overweight, undeveloped mis matching breasts, spotty, out of proportion and I know its true.
I recently found the cause of many of these issues was because of polycystic ovary syndrome. I look at other girls my age with their beautiful faces and bodies and I feel sick when I look at myself. I grew up knowing I would never have a boyfriend but I do. I have started doubting my relationship he is so outgoing and confident im the complete opposite I feel i hold him back. I wonder why hes with me and if he is just waiting for someone better to come along. I have noone my doctors treat me like a hypochondriac because I am an anxious person and I do visit too much but ive stopped that now.
My family just think im being silly but I cant even call a support number Im never alone or talk to a professional as I think they will just think im a psycho. Just down in the dumps and that is why i googled this and it does make a lot of sense.
I just wish I could get over it alreadyl. I am a 20 year old male with no friends or social life. I truly am bisexual. I know it sounds ambiguous but i have dealt with this since i have enough reason, and I acknowledge that im not straight, but im also not gay. Society expects black and white, and i feel like im not. Im depressed more than i am happy. My therapist said, that because i was sexually abused twice as a child by two different men on different occasions, that i have made a connection with pleasure and the male sex organ.
Because i felt pleasure. It was wrong i know, but i have hope. This has been a salvation to find. It gives me peace to know that there is hope for someone as broken as me. Hi, my name is Amanda. I have had strong feelings of self doubt from a very young age. My dad is a very irratable person and works at home. As a result my brother and I had to be very quiet when we were little or he would blow up.
When I was around 10 I was kind of chubby and my mom was always criticizing me for being fat. I remember feeling really bad about that.
If my mom called me fat I would go in my room and destroy all of the honor roll awards that I got from school. Now I am 17 and am an alcoholic. I was cutting my arms with a razor before, but now I drink instead. I even drink on the weekdays and feel horrible at school. I have absolutely no communication with my mom, and very little with my dad.
I have grown into my body and am not fat at all anymore, but now my mom criticizes me for being a vegan. I feel very alone. My dream is to join the army and my siblings or anybody does not know, I have tried to tell people but im fat and my parnents would say no and my siblings would say ur too fat.
My dad is on business trip and we all know he still cheats on my mom. That makes me want care from other people. And then i got gf. Then we broke up at the end. I cry almost everyday. I afraid to believe in people again. Can you advise me? The popular kids at my school tend to judge and I feel very intimidated when they r around.
I feel like they r criticizing me every second!!! I feel that I have to do do what everyone else is doing to fit in. I really look up to my BFF and whatever she does I feel the need to do it to fit in. I love my best friend, but she one ups me in everything is just a little better my parents want to move which adds even more to my depression!!!
Btw I cried all the way through reading this. In a realization way. I am about 4 stone over weight, which would be about 56 pounds, and my dad never fails to point this out to me.
I know to a certain extent this is my fault. A work in progress I guess. But my dads constant criticism is hollowing me out inside.
I spend the vast majority of my time in his company sucking up to him in the hope that he will not mention my weight, and begin is tirade of abusive rhetoric. He has on numerous occasions mentioned he is ashamed to have members of his side of the family see me, and he says he hates hugging me because he can feel my fat. I work very hard and I am a cleanly person. All these criticisms are breaking my heart, and leaving me in a constant state of anxiousness.
I am never comfortable. I often wish myself away from family home, and back at my desk in work because it is one of the only places I feel accepted, and even there I am constantly on edge.
Does my breath smell, does my skin smell, is this top hugging me too tightly and can everyone see my fat? When I make a remark I instantly feel as if it was a stupid thing to say. When interacting with a set group of people such as colleagues, I am constantly feeling as if I am the disliked one. Hi Mary, I felt very sad reading your comment. You sound like a lovely young woman. If I were you, I would limit the amount of time you spend around your abusive father. His behavior is abuse and it is not acceptable.
Is there a way you could move out of your family home or find activities that would keep you out of the house more? Wishing you happy holidays and a happy birthday! I feel like because I was beat daily and my step mother reminded me daily thay noone liked me and I was stupid. Im 36 now and I cant trust or really like anyone I guess ill feel this way forever a complete waste of life.
I have never been abused. I was always happy, lucky, had and have a great family that takes care about me. But i hate myself. I hate myself for not being what i want to be, for being too lazy at one time, and not having enough rest at another.
I hate myself and i hate others. Some i can accept and love. For no reason i hate, and hate. But how comes i manage to scare people away with my thoughts. In one place i act like all people do, in another i act polite and careful, in third i act angry. Almost all of them love me still. What is wrong, and is something wrong, is there anything i have to do? Not that i would do it, i just wish to know. The unknown eats me from inside, and the worst thing is that nobody can give me a valid answer!
There is no truth, we know nothing, and we will never know. All is wrong, all is different, nobody will ever understand a person sitting right next to them! And yet i wonder, why. Why do i bother myself hating others. Why do i bother myself with anything at all. I have to keep on going forward, i cant quit.
This is not something i must quit. I am from India…. I am completely shattered and needs an expert advice. I prepare well for an examination and is failed. I was sure that i had done well…now i lost all my self confidence. I want to become a researcher. Normally i dont talk much to people about my problems, thinking that they are not interested in listening.. Oh my, I read some of your input and I just want to cry. I was so much against them.
It started working after 2 weeks. I am 20 doing law I chosed this profession no one forced me but I am not putting any efforts to succeed I dnt know why my parents r supporting me although I have been a failure in my lyf they still r investing so much on my studies but em not being able to give them good in return although law is my passion: I wana marry him n he also have same proffession as my father my prob is I dnt wana hurt my parents plus wana marry him I hate my self cuz I em disobeying em wht should I do: Why do I hate myself so much, I look in the mirror at my self and I am disgusted.
I try and exercise and I feel like I am going to break my ankle and my chest starts to hurt I also feel like I am not able to get enough air in my lungs. I constantly feel like punching a wall to hurt myself because I am to much of a wimp to hurt myself. I feel like everyone expects me to make them happy no matter how I feel about it. I use work for an escape from that stressor. The new guy is putting everything in the wrong place and inventory is next month.
I want the managers supervisor position but I know that I will never be good enough for that job. I try to exercise to get ride of stress but it hurts so I stop and I just try not to eat and fail. Everything that I do I fail.
What is the point of trying when there is so many more people better then you. I am so mad all of the time because I feel that I will always be stuck at my husbands parents house. Every penny I make goes to my husband and what he wants. So I never can save my money. We are stuck here and it sucks, I am trapped here. Everyone here hates each other they are always yelling at each other.

I have been snapping at people a lot even when they are actually being nice. I fear I have lost myself and I am never coming back. I hate who I am I am fat and ugly and a horrible person. I feel that I am completely worthless I cant do anything right an I always feel like crap. I am just dragging everyone down. I need someone to talk to me that wont yell at me.
I deal with this as a 40 year old man. That feeling is still there though. Still real and powerful. I hate the world. Objectively, I know these thoughts are self-destructive, and that the world is beautiful as well as ugly, and that life is what you make of it.
Those are just rational thoughts though. The thoughts that feel emotionally real are the self-destructive ones, and it is those that are with me through everything, like a barrier I have to push through every day in order to live some semblance of a normal life. Im 20 years old im a girl thats why i have been kept in house for years no school no college n now i am getting married i always feel that i am not perfect i hate everyone in my life i just for once want to live like other people i have been home.
In my mid forties and still hating everything about myself. Too tall, overweight, not beautiful , no talents and not really good at anything. Just feel like I am the perfect example of what not to do. The only thing that I did right was not having children.
Somehow i value myself by numbers, my net-worth is always too low. BMi needs to go way down. I tried so hard to make something of my life but got nowhere. I spend my roaring twenties in prostitution.
I always tried to learn something , took bookkeeping classes and moved on to normal office jobs. Greener pastures were found outside of Europe, i got a student visa for a school in a rural area overseeas and married my fantastic husband I am now feeling stuck in the wrong carreer , i am always working and not getting anywhere.
I am trying to start my own business, but it is a battle, just like keeping my weight down. Looking forward ,dark clouds are on the horizon, with an aging husband he is 22 years older than me a 95 year old mother in law that is having alzheimer, an 85 year old dad with health issues and an 87 year old boss, all needing my care and assistance.
Not sure how I am going to get through this and still come out broke. Dad, mil and boss are all very demanding and just feel trapped and out of ideas to make life better. I happen to be kind of overweight and this has always been my major problem. My mother is very often pushing on this, she tells me that I should be way slimmer, that other girls are prettier because they are thin.
Lately I noticed something weird on my sleep schedule: I feel demotivated and tired more oftern. I usually get up at 6AM and go to sleep at And here my mother comes again. I am a good student and I study everyday, but lately my focus has decreased.
My marks got worse: Today I had a math test, I gave my paper and then waited for everyone else to get out of class. The teacher was still in, so he talked to me and I got slowly calmer. I hate myself for all of these reasons: They even sell smoke to each other. But they, she says, they are the perfect daughters.
I have possibilities of having both social anxiety and the Asperger Syndrome. Hi i am anil, I have been through lots of ups and downs in my life. I am short heighted person. I was bullied during my school days but last 2 years of my school life was amazing as i changed my school.
Later i shifted to another city for my college and found it difficult to adjust initially. I have started feeling what if i go to another company Right now i am happily working in a company where everyone acknowledges me where whatever had happened to me in the past happens again.
It keeps making me depressed. Please read my story. Well it started when I had to choose the biggest yet decision in my whole 19 years of life. It was when I had to choose my university. I originally dreamed of studying overseas, I used to dream of it so much that it was the only thing that I strive to live for.
To study locally, and I rejected all those other, much better offers to go overseas. I regretted it after some time. It has come to haunt me again from time to time even after a year had passed. Can you help tell me about my condition? It may seem like a small matter, but it really is slowly killing me from inside.
Finally, thanks for reading this rambling thoughts of mine. I appreciate your efforts. I hate myself when i saw my mother, because the longer i being at home, the more i realised that i have her character. My mother is a self centered woman who wanted to be loved and need attention all the time. Everyday I hear her nagging all the time, about how her body is not well, ask my father to massage her, about how much house work she should do everyday, and the worst is when she asked me why i am always looked sad when i am around her.
And i am being the same as her. I always nag to my boyfriend, want him to be always beside me, always complain Just like my mother. I cannot be happy around her, because i feel like seeing the copy of me. I want my boyfriend to have a good wive, i have a thought about breakup with him, he deserve better.
Maybe i will just fine and not married. I genuinely believe the only good thing about myself are my looks. It sounds vain but my personality is so screwed up I had to find one thing about myself to even remotely like. During our first winter A-level results I messaged him sending the same message twice because I forgot I;d sent anything first his reply was so delayed.
I snapped back but all I wanted to do was apologise the guilt was crushing me. I never handled it well. He made me try to find him for twenty minutes then when I did completely blew me off in front of all my friends. I only had 5 minute before the coach left and it was as the coach was leaving he decided he was interested in my existence. Once again I just blamed myself and it took me a long time to accept any of it was his but when I did I heaped all the blame on him. I would frequently devalue myself and I found socialising with people I barely knew like navigating a mine field.
The easiest solution was to lock new people out. Just before I went off to uni I summoned up my courage and told my friend I liked him. I got rejected because I was leaving. I came back home for a couple of days and he first response was we should hook up.
Knowing full well I still have feelings for him. I hate myself so much. I feel like this all the time. I make so many mistakes and I hate myself for them. I get called out for things I know are wrong and I snap and call their faults out too and I hate it.
And I hate, hate and hate. But I found the worst things that leave my mouth are almost always the worst ways I feel about myself. I criticise others for the things I hate in myself or when I hate myself.
And I hate myself some more for doing so. Being a mother now and dragging my daughters through the same shit my parents made me go through I feel so ashamed and unworthy of any admiration.
And there are things I like about myself. But this constant feeling of never being good enough, I wish it would dissappear. I want to be the mother others are.
And meeting the emotional needs of their children. I want to be the parent I wish I had. But I have no qlue how to. God how I wish I could heal myself and forgive. But I understand those who do. Cause at the same time I hate everyone for not standing up for me when things went wrong when I was younger. The only thing I feel I do right is aknowledgeing to my kids that I am wrong.
But I know it wont heal all there wounds. I love them so much I just hope I can teach tgem to love themselfse. I feel this very much. Members of the First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and auxiliary presidencies generally speak at these trainings.
