‘I hate myself. I am a bad seed. I make myself sick. I ruin everything.’
Do you struggle with feeling like you are a bad person?
Do you try to escape and numb-out from feeling like a bad person through the use of food, alcohol, drugs, overwork, or overuse of technology? Do you punish yourself for being bad through self-harming behaviors and poor choices in your relationships? Do these behaviors then confirm that you are a bad person, and lead you in a viscous cycle of badness?
Does your sense of badness extend to how you feel about your body?
Are you driven to always be extra good, and never offend or disappoint others, in order to counteract your true badness? Do you live in fear of your bad self being exposed and seen by others?
Are you frustrated that despite the work you have done to improve your self-esteem you still repeatedly collapse into feeling bad?
You are not alone.
