Unhappy Confidence Boosting Complements For a Friend - February 10th 2009, 03:51 PM

I have a friend that is 5'6 i think and about XXX maybe idk something like that, and sometimes when she looks in the mirror, she likes what she sees, then she hates it. I tell her the time she doesnt like what she sees is when shes pms-ing can that happen? i just want to know so i can prove to her that it can happen (if it doesn't i wont of course) plus she's not full tomboy, she loves to watch sports like obbsessed w/ watching sports and likes to go to games, but doesnt nessicarily want to 'play'. shes not lazy she loves the outdoors and walking and stuff like that. actually, she cant stand to stay inside and do nothing even when the weather is horrible, and shes on the verge of getting that full self confidence,but i want to help her so any ideas/ (please, dont say tell her to loose weight, that will bring it down) and yes i know shes over weight, but she doesnt want to try to loose weight because her sister tried and then she gained it back plus more and then became depressed. My friend is afraid that will happen to her so she doesn't want to.

Hi there,
Just as a reminder, please keep in mind not to use weight figures in your posts.

I don't think they can scientifically prove that people don't like the way they look when they are PMSing. There's no way they can logically say that.

Feelings that a person doesn't like what they see in themselves happen now and again, or for some people all the time. If this feeling comes and goes for your friend, that's just how it is.

What I would suggest is to just talk to your friend and tell her that what she looks like doesn't matter and that she's a good person and a good friend. Hang out with her and just have fun. Do things that will keep her mind off of those negative thoughts.
If you would like her to be a little more active, then find some activities to do together. Go for a walk or go to a park. Find some activities that are fun, but don't remind her of exercise.

I hope this works out for you and your friend.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
