Have you ever felt like you didn't like yourself very much?

I am going through a weird phase in my life right now. I have a very mean and nasty mother, and I haven't spoken to her in years. but sometimes when I look in the mirror, I see HER looking back at me and it disgusts me. I fear that I will turn into her, and I hate the idea that I could be ANYTHING like her. Have you ever been afraid of hating yourself?

ive had moments when i feel so insignificant and so insecure because of things that happened in the past. but then again, i just have to remember that the first person who should love myself is me.

Thanks for that. I need to keep the same perspective, but sometimes I lose that.... this is a case where I need to put myself first!

It's very sad to know your story. I wish that you can choose your mother, so you can choose the one you do not hate. We can't change the persons, but we can change ourselves. Therefore, you decide to hate your mother or not; to love yourself or not. About my mother, i don't like the way she treats me but i do not hate her and myself. Good luck and hope you find out your way.

Yeah, I wish I could choose a new family. it's sad to not have one I can care for. But I usually am OK with it. Thanks for your sentiments.

Well,i am not a beauty and i know it.I hate to watch myself in the mirror too much. But this is not a haltred. Most something as bitter constatation. And i allways add: well...i am ugly, but i am inteligent, talented, i have so much positive traits, so what`s the problem?
