I'm lying to myself... - June 28th 2010, 10:50 PM

Okay, so I feel REALLY unnatractive all of the time, but I lie to myself about it... And I KNOW I'm lying. Like I'll think to myself how bad my skin or hair is until I think it's true... but part of me knows, hey I have good skin, and nice hair! And then I always think I'm the biggest girl in my grade... and have the smallest boobs, but I know that's not true either. I also think about how bad my teeth are, but ALL of my friends love them! And I think my eyes are ugly, but I used to love them!... But now, I'm REALLY convinced that all of this is true! I don't know what to do about it! Like WTF do I think I'm even uglier then I am... Like there's no doubt that I'm ugly, but I'm not AS ugly as I feel... And I know I don't deserve this... WTF am I lying to myself?!

Just tell yourself what you love about yourself every day and you should get over it, just compliment yourself
I'm sure that you're beautiful!

I understand what you are going through. I have similar issues with my stomach. Ever since I was little I started convincing myself that I am fat when Im not. Now the issue has gotten worse because I have gained some weight- but I see myself as bigger than I am. And its my brain thats messing me up and I hate it. All I can suggest is that when you start thinking those negative things, try replacing them with 2 positive things around yourself. Also on a mirror or something you look at every day put some positive things about yourself on post-it notes and read them. Possibly read them out loud to yourself in the mirror. Its not going to change over night but it might help. I hope these ideas help.

I try to do that positive theing, but all of the things I used to like about myself are things I now hate... Like I used to LOVE my teeth, but now, I HATE them. And to me, my eyes were BEAUTIFUL, but now they're SO GROSS... And I used to love my long eyelashes, but now I think they look whorish... Like IDK what to do... I know I'm not DISGUSTING... But I feel it.

Have you tried talking to a therapist to work on improving how you see yourself?
