Society's motivation in a nutshell.  by Little-rolling-bean Society's motivation in a nutshell.  by Little-rolling-bean
Form what I have experienced:

Loving yourself = arrogant and bad person
Hating yourself = decent and good person

This is what society thinks. Any sign of liking yourself or doing something for yourself, you are considered arrogant, self centered and horrible. And hating yourself you are automatically loved. And people wonder why girls hate themselves. Seriously, first it is this "be confident! You are great!" then next thing it is "Think about others, stop being up yourself!" 

My estimate is that depression in teenagers exists because of this. They are afraid of being judged and shamed if they show any little sign of being confident, so in order to feel better about themselves and please others, they convince themselves that they are worthless. Nobody wants to be a bad person, and nowadays even being proud about yourself means you are :unimpressed:

Well done, society. 

Well, fuck that. I am not going to put up with this BS, I WILL LOVE MYSELF. And if you think I am arrogant because of this, maybe you should look at the teens that are depressed because of your BS. I am NOT a bad person for loving myself, it just means I am confident. I admit my mistakes but instead of being ashamed, I try to fix them so I can be better. Because I love myself, I make a goal to be a better person.

I also hate people who say "making a self support stamp is arrogant". Oh? Would you rather me make suicide journals then? I am sure you would rather that if supporting myself is OH SO HORRIBLE. 

Everyone is a good person (unless they are a bigot, murderer, rapist or a bully) And beating yourself up is not making you a better person, it is just hurting yourself (and also pleasing bigots).

THANK YOU.

I love myself, but I'm afraid that if I show ANY sign of pride in myself, I'll be considered selfish and self-centered... 

I hate living in today's society...

Well if ya know anything about how psychology works, I'm actually kinda fucked.


I have been verbally/emotionally abused by my family, AND bullied MASSIVELY, since I was 5 years old. I had no perspective of the world and simply took in the negativity..it's burned into my mind and I have been unable to change my self-loathing mindset.
I have a severe inferiority complex, as well as Major Despressive Disorder.


And that is the SHORT version of what I could say. I'd rather not burden you with paragraphs of my bs. But, thank you. <3

Thats horrible. You obviously did not deserve that abuse. Child abuse and abusing family is so wrong. You should not blame yourself for their shittiness.
