I hate myself

I am tired of feeling so bad about myself. There are days where I don't feel like I have the energy to do anything. I don't even know how to fully explain what I'm feeling - it's just so hard. All I want to do know is get high, or drunk - I feel like I need to use something to escape. I know it's a cliche thing to say, but I feel like I have no friends.

No, I'm not getting any treatment. I think it's mostly because I'm scared I'll get in trouble for dealing with my problems by drinking.

The friend that you need right now is you. You have to stop saying that you hate yourself. You don’t have to love yourself yet, but the hate needs to end.

I used to say that “I hate myself” or “I hate my life” everyday. It worked great to drag me to my bottom. Now I say what I mean, and mean what I say. Sometimes I hear myself saying “I’m so tired”, I check myself and challenge that thought “no I’m not”. My perception becomes my reality. I may be bored or lazy, but I’m not tired. I can fix only what is real, so say what you really are when you are going to say I hate myself. I am sad, I am lonely, can be fixed if they are what is real.

I used to get super drunk every day because I thought that would help me feel better. Well one night when my boyfriend was with me I got extremely drunk and very depressed that I almost walked out into the highway. My boyfriend stopped me. Since then I haven’t gotten drunk.

i know how you feel.

it’s a terrible feeling. i’m praying for you.

try occupying yourself. this might get your mind off of things. and try to avoid going to alcohol and drugs - this could lead to things becoming even worse.

we’re here for you.

if you feel like these feelings are getting worse, maybe you should talk to a professional. they can help a lot. they certainly have for me.

i am always here if you need to talk!

best wishes. xx
