      1. It’s mostly my weight weighing on my insecurities. It’s like a seed was planted and it keeps growing now matter how much I get rid of it. Nobody is telling me I need to lose weight (except a doctor, but I don’t count that lol). I just…can’t help but feel sad when I look in the mirror.

      2. To be honest…I’m not entirely sure. I would say that it takes me looking at myself in the mirror and saying, ‘no, nothing is wrong. You got this and you know what? You’re awesome and beautiful.’ and meaning it.

      3. Try writing 5 reasons why you love yourself and read it each time you feel like thinking something bad about yourself.

      1. If your wish is big enough and you act upon that wish, I’m sure you’ll tell the stories you wish to tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Believing that you have self worth can change your life in better. If you think I can help you with this, please let me know.

      1. My blog is really about the mood, feeling, emotion, bright side, dark side or the nothingness I feel that day. Sometimes with humor sometimes with tears. My feelings of self-worth and failure come from all of my issues, some days more strongly than others, but is always with me. As my blog unfolds and depending on what my mind says is the entree of the day explanations of what has made me feel or act the way I do will come into view. I have to be in a certain frame of mind to share things. I hope you can help with those feelings as sometime they weigh me down. Help and understanding is never turned away.

      2. I would say 2 things have changed. 1. Some days i still struggle with writing my blog, especially after days of spending hours either writing or commenting on blogs I find interesting. Part of my bipolar disorder, I manage some how to force myself to write and entry on those days. So that i guess is a positive if you look at it that way. In my past i would have not made a entry and eventually gave up, I don’t want to give up so forcing myself is the obvious choice. And 2. I find it easier to talk about certain things in my life and past in my blog rather than my family, friends or even my therapist . some things are hard enough to remember without reveling them face to face. I don’t know if i would call this a positive it feels more like therapy to me. but still a good thing,

      1. Issues with depression and ingrained thoughts from childhood. Oh, and shitty men I’ve dated.

      2. Depression is a tough concept and all those shitty men did not help with it. The good part is that despite all the shit you’ve been through, you somehow found a way to move forward and this proves that you’re stronger than you might think.

      3. Yes… I often forget that. Thank you for reminding me. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Each person is “weird” in an own way, but I choose to say unique instead of weird. For the first part, I’m going to say what Peter Dinklage said: Give yourself permission to fail.

  1. There are just a little too many beliefs I need to change if I want to reach my goals. I will maybe write about this on my own blog, but I guess lack of self-worth is at the core.

      1. Thank you I am actually in tears at the moment but its different tears , they are relief tears of my hero letting him go , the negative thoughts i had and accepting his love and protection finally

      2. Thank you! The idea is interesting and hopefully I can find the most appropriate words to express it.

      1. It’s like I need to talk to someone about it to hear them say something like, hey go for it! You can do it! Sounds like you have a great idea, go for it. Mostly from family, I seek their approval to feel it’s safe to take a chance, instead of listening to myself and just trust I am making the right decision. In my mind this makes logical sense ti me, but in my heart it not necessary to seek approval.

      2. Maybe it’s because you’re afraid of failure and judgment and you seek support from your family, not necessarily approval. Iโ€™m going to say it to you: Go for it! Whatever that it is! You might fail, but itโ€™s ok. You might also succeed. If you donโ€™t try, youโ€™ll never know and you have to live with the regret of not trying your whole life. If you donโ€™t try, you definitely fail.

      3. Thank you so much for that advice! I am afraid of failure & that makes sense, I am seeking support which my family has never questioned my goals. They have always encouraged me even though I questioned myself more than anyone! And thank you for cheering me on, I will share my goal. It is to eventually work for myself, have a lifestyle to where I can work at home, still earn a living and spend time with my son. I can do this!

      1. I want to excel in my career but my family life is a barrier at present as my son is small… Plus how to start is the biggest problem with me.
