Many times people have told me that I should love myself and be happy being me. But that phrase just sounds so...Alien, like it's another language, it doesn't compute in my brain...Maybe it's the way people say it, like I can magically just start to like myself or like who I am. But...Truly I don't understand how one loves themselves, how one likes being them. I mean...I can understand people with great lives enjoying being who they are. But who would want to be a 22 year old loner with almost no friends and the only person in the world who gives a crap about him being his own mother? Now, to those who tell me I should love myself, I ask you, would YOU want to be that person I just described? If you said no then please do explain to me that if someone else doesn't even want to be me then how can I want to be me? I may have gotten a bit ranty there at the end, truly I am not angry, I am simply confused, I don't understand this concept. Can someone educate me? Is there someone here who can coach me through a process of learning to like myself? Because I have to say, if it's one of those "You need to find the strength within yourself to just do it on your own" kind of bollocks then I am completely fucked. Wow, I still sound angry...Honestly, I'm not. I just want to be taught or coached on some process for learning how to like who I am and maybe then I'll find the piece of myself I'm missing.
