I try my friend. I’m very hard on myself. My first girlfriend really noticed it too.

I grew up in a very broken family and an oldest child. So I had to grow up very fast, and I often felt guilty if my stepfather hurt my mom.

Nobody can like you, if you don’t like yourself first. :hatched_chick::hatched_chick::hatched_chick:

Well I hope not cos I don’t wanna be suspended for being ‘spam’

I don’t @san_pedro threads are spam but that’s just personal opinion

I like myself. I’m not crazy about myself, but I have some idea of the things I have been through.

I like you, too @LittleMissSlothy

No one has mistreated me more than I. A lower self still wants me to die. I still can’t get over me.

I can be pretty hard on myself, I suppose. I push myself pretty hard, but that’s my nature.

Why try? Girls? Money? Noteriety?

To answer your question, yes and no. I’m not forgiving of myself enough for mistakes i’ve made and how I’ve turned out, but I am too soft on myself when it comes to actually going out and achieving things.

Why not try?

I have to push myself or I end up homeless.

Hm. My mum once said to my dad that she doesn’t like herself.

I like her though.

Maybe secretly and deep down she does like herself but on some level she is just confused.

I think something that’s kind of putting me off balance atm is that I might die young. Its not a certainty probability but my chances have gone up and this is not a delusion.

So sometimes I’m feeling like omg I have to achieve so much in a short time.

But then I say to myself, it’s not speed, it’s direction. And if speed is too fast, then that derails me off my direction.

Maybe the key is to be patient with ourselves…
