I genuinely care about people and will go to almost any lengths to help them. People often comment about how kind I am.

My fucked up brain can’t see this as a good thing, however, and I hate myself for it, because I feel that it stems from a pathological need to be liked.
I relate to this so much. I can so quickly change "I'm kind" to "I'm a doormat"

Tall order for many of us, I know. I know my default is self-hatred. But if I can do it, so can you! I'll go first.

I actually have a pretty brave streak in me, and it's gotten me through some of the worst periods - homelessness, severe parental abuse, insane pressurized work environments. It's hard because it means ignoring (or suppressing) my other traits like sensitivity or fear, but I have been able to adapt quickly through many crises and still make it through. Friends and acquaintances frequently comment on this. If only bravery could reverse diseases and illness, then I'd be good.

Fight your self-consciousness and post here. You know you want to. :)
Nothing. I hate myself. Im a worthless runt.

I'm very open-minded and I believe anyone can become anything like a famous actor and musician, etc. I had a friend that told me he wanted to be a professional baseball player one day and I believe he can do it despite his current situation. If he had told his dreams to a small-minded person then they probably would have told him it's not possible and probably laughed at him.

I'm imaginative. I have a really vibrant and active imagination and can make up stories and poems on the spot. I really like to pursue creative endeavours, even though I am not the best writer or artist.

I’m very good at articulating how I feel. It’s not made a jot of impact in health support that’s needed, but that’s one of the talents I’m happy with. Ive liked others’ posts as reflected things im good at / can identify with.

I like my heart. I’ve always had a heart for those worse off than me and I actually like that about myself.

Im no saint, but I do have a heart for those less fortunate than me.

Also,(its two but oh well. Shoot me((please)) I have an incredibly capacity to love those that I care about.

I deeply hate my body, in almost every way. I have a bad case of body dysmorphia so I'll never have a good image of myself.

but I love my eyes, if only I had a good looking face to compliment them. they were so beautiful while I was a baby that I was one of those models for diaper commercials... yeah, it's ironic that I turned out so ugly.
