How to like yourself? (I keep having really bad mood swings) Watch

    One minute I can be sat feeling content with myself, appreciating myself, motivated for A-levels etc.
    Then suddenly, I just feel so crappy and start despising myself for no apparent reason. Why do people even like me? They probably all hate me. What do I have to offer anyone? I deserve to be hurt.
    But you see, nothing has even happened to make me feel like this. I just started feeling like this. It's been happening for a while now. At night it gets much, much worse.

    I'm trying to think more positively about myself but it's hard when I have these moods.
    Do you have any tips or ideas of things I could do when I'm in these moods? A part of my mind is saying that I should do bad things, but I really don't want to do those things.
    I just want to be at peace with myself, you know?

    Have you seen your GP at all about this or talked to anyone? It sounds like you could really use the help tbh. I've felt similar in the past, and still do to an extent, but I promise no-one deserves to be hurt and you are included in that.

    In terms of things to do, what sort of stuff do you enjoy? Distractions etc cover up the problem rather than solving it but that's what you need a lot of the time. Find some good books to read, music to listen to, anything really. Look into mindfulness too, and things like online jigsaws and colouring can be amazing. You can always talk to or email the samaritans too- you don't have to be suicidal. But yeah, I'd really recommend seeing your GP when you can. You don't deserve this, and it sounds like it could really do with sorting before things get any worse for you. Hope that helps a bit!

    Just so you know, you are not alone in feeling like that.
