HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsWhat should I do if I don’t like myself?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 5 months ago
I have always been a normal kid. I never really had any problems until I hit puberty. I started to feel like I was ugly and that no one would ever like me. This caused me to have low self-esteem which in turn led to me not liking myself. I didn't know how to make the feelings go away and it felt like they were consuming me. I tried to change the way I looked, but nothing seemed to help. I eventually just stopped caring about anything and became really depressed.

If you don't like yourself, it's important to understand that you are not alone. Many people struggle with self-esteem issues, especially during puberty. The first step is to accept that there is nothing wrong with you. You are perfect just the way you are. Once you have done that, it's important to start working on improving your self-esteem. This can be done by engaging in positive self-talk, setting realistic goals for yourself, and surrounding yourself with supportive people. It will take time and effort, but it is possible to learn to like yourself again.
