so what if you think really hard but cant think of many (if any) good things and you dont want to let others know how you are feeling?

chocolate really does help when eaten in small amounts. (unfortunately once i open some i cannot stop eating it!)

If you look in the mirror and cannot find anything you like about yourself, then why not ask someone else what part of your appearence they like??? a friend or family member,

Good luck

I find if you keep chopping and changing bits in your everyday routine, that can help me cheer up as its a change from the same things you do everyday. ;)

Hey dude! those r some really good pointers...i think its good to know that theres something out there that can save someone that completely despises themselves. the looking into the mirror thing is good...i used to HAVE to do that, every morning. it kept me going! :dancing:

Oh, you are the roots that sleep beneath my feet

And hold the earth in place

Each time a faucet opens

Words are spoken

The water runs away

And I hear your name

No, nothing has changed

There was this book I read and loved

The story of a ship

Who sailed around the world and found

That nothing else exists

Beyond his own two sails and wooden shell

And what is held within

All else is sure to pass

We clutch and grasp

And debate what's truly permanent

But when the wind starts to shift

Well, there's no argument

hey guys!

this is a technique that i use ALL THE TIME when i'm feeling down, depressed, sad, just when life ahas me down you know? and it works reallyreally well, and i hope this is where this list should go!

:) ok, here's how it works. you have to write a list with ten things you love about yourself. no cheating and only doing five or six and saying that's all you have ;)

just think of ten things that make you happy to be, well, you! :D

here's my list:

-i have a million wondeful friends

-i lost the weight i wanted to lose

-i have pretty eyes

-i have good shoulders :P

-i don't judge people based on their appearances

-i give money to charity

-i stand up for what i believe in

-i do what i think is right

-i love life

-i look out for the little guy

now, see? i feel better already! sometimes it seems like you're bragging about yourself, but sometimes you need to brag about yourself to make yourself feel better, you know? :D



so, i hope that this technique will help some of you guys out there who are feeling blue!



go from :'( to :D !



hugs and love, hannah



ps-if this should go somewhere else, feel free to move it! :D

Ya that is a great exercise. I think I should start an exercise book on ways to make me more confident. :D Thanks for the suggestion. I shall try it and tell you how it goes.

She's so big hearted

but not so remarkable

just an ordinary humble girl

expecting nothing as we may

to think it's a pretty person's worth

you are beautiful

and you'd better go show it

so go and look again

you gotta be true only if you really wanna go to the top and you really wanna win

don't believe in living normal

just to satisfy demand

Well, if you wanna get free

and if wanna get smart by the sake of your heart

you should own your lame and stand up tall

lol thats a good idea.. I was thinking people should do things like this- we should make it a topic where everyone has to do it and post it (well not HAVE to, but you know what I mean..)... just to FIND things about themselves they like-- make it pinned or something.. maybe we could just turn that around and urge people to do it!

Ok I put this in with all the other self esteem stuff.



Is this alright with everyone? If you want me to split it, then do say. But there were so many it was looking unruly.



If you have some other ideas and which topics to separate, anything at all, then please tell me :)

There comes a point where you look in the mirror and think you're the ugliest thing in the entire world, and you hope you die before you literally blind someone with your ugliness. You hate yourself inside and out, think you're stupid, mean, whatever...



I was at that point.



But then all the sudden, I started thinking about it. I really think my low self-esteem is the reason I have no friends. I mean, really. Who wants to be with someone who hates themself, thinks their ugly, cuts, cries a lot, doesn't really talk, and is withdrawn? I don't. So why would anyone else?



So I've made a pact with myself. I'm determined to turn myself around somehow. I made signs for my wall. They say, "I am:", "Beautiful", "Wanted", "Loved", and "Smart". I recommend everyone to at least TRY to turn around. Don't sulk in the self pity you all have. You're not ugly. You guys are all beautiful. Just look inside yourself for that beauty. I guarantee you'll find it.
