jealous of my friends. - November 4th 2010, 07:57 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Im not sre if this goes here or somewhere else feel free to move it.

So i know it sounds really bad... but im soo jealous of my friends, they all have killer bodies and weigh at least 30 kgs lighter them me. I can bearly go shopping with them sometimes cos it makes me feel bad about my body, and myself.

I cant where shorts anymore, to self consious, At school ive been forever teased about being fat, and EVEN my FAMILY teases me about it.

I strive for apporval from my friends/ family, and i dont think im ever going to be good/ or pretty enough for them. My friends say im pretty, but i just cant see it anymore, i think they are lying.

My bro hit me alot, he doesnt to much now, just treats. Its made me think that what he says is true, that im fat, worthless, stupid, that im just a problem for the family.....
Maybe its true?

I WANT to be good enough for everyone. but i dont know how.
The STRESS levels are RISING.
I dont know what to do, some one HELP ME PLEASE

Don't try to be perfect. You're probably perfectly pretty with your current state.
Yeah, my mom taunts me about my weight, even after I lost 13 pounds over summer.
You are a great person, I promise!

I'm sorry that you are having a hard time...hang in there though. My honest advice is that as cheesy as it sounds, confidence makes a person shine. Be confident with what you have and what you were given. There is no 'perfect' body shape or anything like it so just be confident, you are not worthless at all I know its easier said than done but the second you start to show confidence in yourself everyone will see the difference And forget the people who make remarks about the way you look, you could just as easily make remarks to them about their insecurities but you don't because you're taking the high road...personally from what I gather i'd rather hang out with you than the people who you mentioned in the post

You are what you are, and you are good enough! You shouldn't let anyone make you feel like you aren't worth a million dollars! Whatever size and shape you are, you need to learn how to love yourself. It's okay to want to tone up, and work on a few bits. Maybe if you're a bit uncomfortable with yourself, you could join a gym. It could help to boost your confidence and make you feel a lot better.

I understand that you would be jealous of your friends if you think that they look better than you. But you need to stop thinking like that, and just think of yourself. You're fine how you are, but if you want to tweek and few things then it's okay to do that.

You just need to learn how to love yourself for who you are!

I do hope you feel better about this, message me if you'd like to talk. Take care.
