    I believe I have low self esteem. I tend to distance my self from alot of people and I constantly compare my self to others. By doing that I can see that they're doing better than me in life and it's like I'm the one that's deserving the crap. I overthink alot and just think that I deserve it. I feel like i'm going insane and I really am such a bad person. I hate my self for it. How do i accept my self and forget about it?

    I don't you'll ever reach some epiphany where it all clicks into place and you can just 'accept yourself'. In my opinion, overthinking things like your own self worth etc. are a symptom of not having enough interesting **** going on in your life. Maybe spend more time during your day being productive in working towards your long-term goals. That, and spending more time just hanging out with friends. Too much free time being by yourself and doing nothing is a recipe for disaster. That's just my own experience, though.

    I do have long term goals and that. And i think it's the people that I'm surrounded with, the place where I'm at are full of fake people and through my experiences, i decided to cut them off. Hopefully I'm starting to do things that will gain my interest back. Kind of want college to start already lmao
