I actually have this so called self-hate. I hate my self for being so hateful. I hate my self for having such a great inclination to hate a person even if the offense had occurred for quite a long time ago. It could be because I never release my anger in an instant. But I hate it that no matter how hard I would work to really forget and forgive, my heart and brain just couldn't give me the easiness to do so. I even consider this one as a mental disease already because it really lowered my self-esteem, self-trust and self-confidence. It even left me with fewer friends or no friends at all. What a depression!!!

I thing Self- acceptance is the solution....If you will just learn how to accept the way you are and accept that you are only human that can commit mistakes then no doubt that you can also accept other's mistakes and forgive them....Forgive yourself first.....

It all boils down to these words.... pride and self-esteem. I wasn't the type of person that hated myself but I'm more of the guy who is ashamed of myself. I was ashamed because people teased me because I was too thin, I was suffering from anemia and there was nothing I could do about it. I was ashamed because at times I could've done better in class..etc..etc. In the end I just learned to deal with it cause if I didn't it'll get me nowhere and It'll just consume me.

We really have the same situation. I am also ashamed of my self bec. I'm also too thin. I'm turning nineteen this 12th of Feb. and my waist line measures only 25'. I also could've done better in class but my super low self-confidence halted my progress.
