"When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgments aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen over night. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it."

Anonymous: I don't think it's very strange to have doubts like that, but at the end of the day as long as you know you're a good person there's no question that you deserve to be appreciated. Hell even if you aren't a good person being treated with respect is only right 

I am a good person. At least I truly believe I am. It’s just when people constantly tear me down I start losing my sense of self-worth. But thank you for the kind words, even though I probably don’t know you

Anonymous: Please don't think nobody wants you, even if nobody does (which is not the case) you just need to find the right people. There's like 8 billion people on the planet and you seem wicked nice, I'm 100% sure there's people that will appreciate you as much as you deserve 

Thanks I really appreciate that <3 but sometimes I wonder if I actually deserve it or not
