I'm sorry if this has been asked before (I'm sure it has, but I searched and found nothing); do you like yourself? A lot of people I know don't like themselves, for a variety of reasons.

Obviously you can't change everything about yourself, but I've been thinking a lot lately about the fact that ultimately, our existence and the way we exist affects us above all other people. I realize that that seems obvious, but a lot of my friends and the people I interact with don't seem to share that ideology - at least not outwardly.

So when people tell me that they don't like themselves, I find it really hard to justify why. We all have the ability to change who we are to a large extent, so why don't we when it would be for our own personal benefit?

Sorry for clumsiness of this thread; I'm terrible at structuring these sort of things.

And to answer my own question... I'm working on it. I like myself a lot more than I did even six months ago.

edit: if you don't, why?

People are lazy + like sympathy + like being told they are pretty.

I think that sometimes its a lot deeper than that.
but usually, not.

'Cause if you like yourself a lot: Go let it out.

Yeah, I'm pretty satisfied with myself, but that doesn't stop me from going to exercise a lot when my studies start up again after the summer.

I sure do. There's no point in complaining if it's your body. You were born with it and are stuck with it. Unless you're one of those rich kids who can afford plastic surgery.

Yo TS,

just wondering.

I have been extremely unhappy with myself for a long time. Over the last few months it's become clear to me that I'm the only person who can change that, so I've changed a lot of things.

I'm curious to see how everyone else feels about themselves, and I guess that's sparked from the realization that I've been miserable for a long time.

I get like that sometimes.
but I keep things fresh, if I get too complacent I immediately make changes.

I like myself. But if I had to live with another me, I'd kill me number 2. I am an unbearably annoying person.
