Self-esteem issues

Posted by blueboots21 , 20 June 2013 · 28 views

I try not to vent too much on here but I guess sometimes it's okay to. So, I basically started putting myself down around 8 or 9 when my dad would smack me around for not listening to him. Mom wasn't home a lot because she worked. But, I would tell myself no one loved me and I was a waste and stuff like that. I would listen to the kids at school calling me ugly.. I guess old habits are hard to break because I continued to put myself down through out the time I was being abused. And, still, I continue to put myself down. I try not to compare myself to others, but I end up doing that. I try to think positively, but I end up not. Any advice?
