getting betterish - December 5th 2017, 12:21 AM

So it seems to me that my mental health has gotten a lot better. I haven't cut in over 200 days. I haven't purged in over 200 days as well. My therapist and case manager are so happy with how well I am doing. I asked my therapist if I could get a part time job, but she said no because it might be too stressful( Probably like school was) but we are upping my treatment. I am now going to be doing a step-up group every week starting a week from tomorrow. I can honestly say I don't think I have felt like this in the longest time. Do not get me wrong. I still HATE myself, and hate how I look and my weight, my self-esteem is still crap. I still can't stand to look in the mirror because all I see is fat and ugliness. I am losing weight healthy but when I look in the mirror I see a person 3x the size I am. I still try and avoid going out of the house as much as possible, because of my looks and weight, also because of my social and general anxiety. So for people who have gone through this, I just was wondering if you can tell me some of the things you have done to help your self-esteem or for you to love yourself the way you are. So while I am feeling much better, I just wish everything would go away and I could love myself for me. I'm starting to wonder if I ever will love myself. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas to help me?

Hello!

I do think that when it comes down to you.. you are you, and there's parts of your that others will never be able to copy. You've fought the hard fight and its time things got even better for you.

As for things that help me appreciate myself.. Well, things have been tough. But I've trying to be as kind as I can be.. like feeding cats whenever I come across them, helping people out, always do my best... and stuff. Perhaps for you . it might be good if you did some charity work where you focus on helping other people .Then, their smiles and happiness become something that support you wherever you go. It's powerful and no one can take the fact that you've a positive imprint upon other people's lives ' away from you. It becomes a platform from where you can build your self-esteem and belief again. I don't think there's anything else more true than that..

Also, I'm pretty sure you aren't ugly. You're beautiful the way you are. You are you. Anyone who gets to date you for you, is probably more blessed than anyone else out there who doesn't get to do so.

Keep moving forward and remember that we'll always be here to help ya out.

Much kindness and warmth,
Darren
