    I really like myself, my values and the way I live. My problem is that I get too much trouble being myself and I have to either live a life where I don't like myself or stay at home alone, which makes me aggressive. But I like the real me, my personality, the things I can do, the person I have always been and still identify with.

    However I've heard it is typical to NOT like oneself.

    Is there anyone else out there who also likes yourself and still is very depressed and just want to kill yourself?

    If you don't like yourself, is it because you don't like your personality and think you're good enough, or is it because of what the depression has done to you?

    I don't like myself, I dont like the way I look, the way I am with others, my impulsiveness, and the way in which I spend money like there is no tomorrow - maybe that is cos I know I will end up killing my self sooner or later I may as well spend it. I dont like what the depression has done to me.!

    i don't like myself, either. it's a combo of things... depression tells me a bunch of lies (you are alone, and always will be, you are a loser and always have been, etc etc etc) and i have a hard time fighting back; also i was abused as a kid and have rotten self-esteem because of that. if i liked myself i don't think i'd be suicidal.

    Same me. I think if I liked myself I would be happy and not wanting to end everything!

    I don't like myself, in fact I detest everything about me...i'm too tall, too fat, ugly, i hate the way I talk, i hate the way I look, I hate the way my eyes, nose, mouth, ears are..the way my arms, legs, body, feet HANDS I hate my hands. I hate everything about me. My views are too complicated, my thoughts are to messed up. Self esteem is what others have, i have none...i hate that i'm shy around people, i hate that I fear everything...i hate that i don't trust....there's not one thing I like about me.

    I don't like myself much, haven't for a long time, but sometimes I can accept who I am.

    I really identify with this. On the whole, I think I do like myself, it's just that most other people don't :laugh:

    Edit: Actually there's a whole lot I don't like about myself, but generally I think I'm alright =)

    in general I like myself, personality-wise. :smile:
    Of course there are aspects I don't like, but that's okay, as you can't be perfect :smile:

    my current life no, my true self I dunno. But i think in our true selves we are perfect, cause we are part of the thing that is god. divine matrix a term i like to describe it. Omniscience and time travel in connectedness with god, nothings impossible to fix.

    I hate myself. Looks wise I can deal with...I wouldn't call myself ugly (although that causes enough trouble as it is :unsure: ) Personality wise, I hate that people are friends with me in order to laugh at me. And that when I open my mouth I always make a fool of myself. I hate the fact that I don't have the strength to deal with all my baggage. I hate that I can't be the positive person I used to be. I hate how much I've changed.
