Can you imagine what it's like to have no...

...self esteem?

Like, literally ZERO.


When someone on here expresses self doubt we just tell them to get stronger and just deal with it.

But that would already be assuming they had something to use to push themselves up.

If you have none and nothing and NOBODY in your life to help pull you out of a slump or make you feel worthwhile, how do you do it?

Can you imagine?

No friend, no family member, no co-worker?

How could you tell someone like that to just get over their lack of confidence?

Most people probably can't even imagine so they would just say, "Find something good about yourself and work on that."

or 

"You don't need anybody to make you feel good about yourself."

But the fact is that we all need SOMEONE to make us feel accepted and /or loved

Im not really that harsh i wouldnt say that to anyone. But no one is ever completly alone.. if you are on here you should have kids right? My kids can pull me through anything. I could never just give up on life because they are my life.

No, we really don't. If you don't love a single part of yourself, no one can love you. Period.

I'm like that.

But there's ugly people and there's beautiful people.

Nothing wrong with accepting that

      haha you talking about ME?????? i was so there. for me, it got to a point that either i'd be ok w/ being me, or i'd die. by my own hand. and simply put, i didn't wanna NOT see the sun again. i needed to say to me again and again, that i was ok to breathe. i was ok to live. i wasn't perfect, but i DID deserve to be here. took a long time, and was hard. but i did it.
