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).

Society is really stupid nowadays, like teen girls think they're superior and no one can be mean because they're a teen and a girl, yet they go off attacking people like drama whore brats, like bitch I don't give a fuck about your sex and age, piss off! :iconwtfisthisplz: Not to mention they act highly sexist, obviously not all act like this, but a lot do, and it's facepalm worthy! :iconfacepalmplz: And like pic above, because I don't hate myself people insult me, frankly they wouldn't have the guts to say that to my face, fact.

I'm not an Angel, but I'm don't hate myself. I like myself as whoever I am and I think my weirdness and quirkiness is really unique and I like it. I'm not flawless but I'm not like, someone who doesn't have a decent spot either. I consider myself to be someone in the middle.

It's like a cycle of thought. First, they start out loving themselves, then hating themselves, then loving themselves again, then hating themselves again, and so on.

Uh no. That is my OC Kitty Grown. Funby thing. She's not a Gorillaz OC. She dyes her hair blue. The car tail and cat ears are fake. She got them at a costume store. She doesn't wear them. Just at Comic cons, anime cons, furry cons. I just put her in different fandoms for fun.

I see the opposite online. If you like yourself, you're well-loved. If you don't, everyone dislikes you too and you get harrassed for it.

It depends though. If someone keeps talking about how sad they are, then they can be considered an attention whore trying to steal support from the diagnosed depressed people.

Actually, that is supposed to happen because the rules are:

And then once those people finally get help and say something nice about themselves, you go back to bitching about them :| 

These rules are as crappy as classroom rules.

I take great pride in myself.
Because I take pride in myself, that means I am an arrogant and conceited person? Even though I help my mom out with chores or help my little brother with homework?

What I hate in this stuff is, that if you are a self-confident person, they call you a "big head" or something like that.
My God! We are living in the times, where self-confidence is usually compared to the exagerrated ego.
People are like "If I am suffering, you must suffer too.". Fucking sadists.

Sad but true Bean.

If a person even dares to say one good thing about themselves 'OMG shut the eff up you're not that great! So conceited'. That really makes me clench my fists hearing comments like that. Supporting yourself is not that bad: I remember my grandmother and my mother drilling that constantly to me whenever I'd not take a compliment or whatever .//. Beating yourself up is not healthy period either. There needs to be some sort of balance I believe.

This is true. I decided to conduct a little psych experiment on my own time with some people for about a week or so(not telling them, naturally, until later). When I showed I was in distress, people were more willing to grant my demands and listen to my words. They seemed to be more sympathetic and caring.
Not that I hate myself. I'm comfortable in my own skin and head, quirks and all.

I sort of find the whole obsession with life a tad funny at times.  People all want everyone to live, yet bullying often comes to the point of self-harm or suicide; then, they all blame the person for killing him or herself.  Even funnier is how people suddenly listen as you're in distress. I want to know the motivation for that.
