Re: im sick of this self-hatred
I know what you mean, I'll do the same. Tell myself I'm a horrible person, that no one cares about me, that I'm disgusing, etc. And ironicly, I also hate that about myself. So I'd be a hypocrite to say that I know a sure-fire way to get over it. But one thing that I try to do that seems to work is try to find things that I like about myself. Whether it's things like 'I like how this color looks on me", 'I'm good at this' or "I get enough sleep". When you tell yourself your worthless, try to counterattack it.

I'm here if you want to talk more. Feel free to pm me. I'm always listening.

Re: im sick of this self-hatred

Great job reaching out for help! I'm sorry you've been feeling so down.

I can totally relate to what you're saying. It's so hard not to be down on myself. Two things that really helped me is remembering that I am a child of the universe and deserve compassion just like all the others creatures on this planet. The other thing that really helped was looking at pictures of myself as a little girl and remembering that child lives inside me today. I would never say such horrible things to a 4 year old, so I kind of start looking at myself as both a child and a loving parent of that child. It's also helped to give myself credit for things I do well. Everyday I write down: 1 thing I'm proud of myself for doing that day, 1 thing i'm grateful for, 1 thing that made me smile, and 1 thing i'm looking forward to. That helps me end the day on a positive note and sleep better. I also wrote a love letter to myself that i read frequently. it sounds silly, and it was very very difficult to find and go on about the good things in me, but once you have those words down i found they can give me sucha boost when i'm feeling down. hope one of these ideas might help you, feel free to vm or pm me anytime.
