• Yes, I have been there... But then I realized that I have family and friends who love and care about me; and children who also love me and need me to be strong for them.
  • No I haven't. Thanks to my loved ones, my friends, and yes, Answerbag - I've found more reasons to hope for myself and love myself.
  • Yes, for a long time in my life I just about did. But there was always the smallest light that remained on inside of me. I called it my pilot light. No matter how dark things got, this tiny light would always shine a path for me to find my way to love, hope, understanding, purpose and perspective. There were days when it was just about extinguished but sure enough, I'd wake up the next day and there it was, and I'd start creeping along again and slowly but surely the light spread inside me and the hope and love I have for myself continue to grow to this very day.
  • At one point yes, and it was sad, because unfortunately the only people I could count on were my friends. My parents were the cause of why I was like that. Eventually I found out I couldn't let myself down because of selfish jerks, so I forced myself to feel better. Not a very good thing to do, but beats being depressed.
  • Nope, can't say that I have. I know I am special in the eyes of God, that is all that matters.
  • Absolutely. But all of those feelings were a result of the circumstances around me. You determine your own luck and happiness. I was only experiencing those feelings of self loathing because I allowed myself to. If you don't love, believe in or know yourself, how do you expect anyone else to?
  • Absolutely no. I hope that you haven't. Please know that you are in my prayers. I suggest reading the book "The Secret", it will open up new avenues in your life, it did me. I care about you as my AB friend.
  • Yeah, I lost all hope and love for myself 5 years ago, and I've yet to regain either.
  • Yes. It's like looking at the world from the bottom of a well. Everything is dark, and cold, and confining. It's empty and you are completely isolated from everyone. But if you are fortunate enough to have the support to pull yourself out, you can slowly regain your identity and sense of self-worth. But not without hard work and intensive self examination that can be excrutiatingly painful. But it's possible.
  • Yes I have at times but I get my spine back and realize that I am who I am and I have to love me before I can love anyone else or before anyone else can love me.
  • Yes and it continues to this day. Hopefully I'll see the light sort of speak.
  • Yes I gave up 3 years ago. Things started looking better a few months ago but I was wrong.. :( I have no hope or faith in myself or care or love for myself what so ever anymore :( I cant live my life however hard i try.. i cant do the things i want to so iv just given up :'(
