“At some point in your adult life, you’ve probably walked into a party and felt a frisson of relief upon discovering at least one woman there who was fatter, uglier, and/or dressed more inappropriately than you. We sure have. But if you want to have any hope of making peace with your own body, you need to knock that shit off.
We’re not even telling you to stop just because it’s nasty, petty, and beneath you to judge other women so harshly; it is, but because you’re not a saint, and neither are we. We’re telling you to stop because it’s actually in your own self-interest to stop being such a bitch. ‘Cause you know what happens when you quit saying that crap about other women? You magically stop saying it about yourself so much, too.
Judging other women negatively creates a constant stream of nasty thoughts in your head. It is inevitable that you will end up applying those same standards to yourself. We think we’re building ourselves up when we do this but, really, we’re just tearing other people down to our level. And we hate to go all Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood on you, but tearing other people down isn’t really productive. It leaves you in the same place you started, which is full of loathing for your own body.”
I’m fucking pissed though I am pretty much doing everything in my power to ruin my life and I’m pm successfully destroying all the ties I have worked so hard to keep, and the more I try to get help, the further it seems to be. Apparently I’m at a time in my life now where it’s becoming dangerous for me to be unmedicated, and I’ve already shown signs of “destructive behaviour”, but clearly that doesn’t change anything because there’s still a 6 month waiting list for a psychiatrist, and it’s growing by the day. Canada, I’m sure there are thousands of struggling psychiatrists out there who need a job, God knows there are thousands of struggling people out here looking for a damn psychiatrist.
All this guy does is get completely shit faced every single night. He graduated a year ago, and he’s doing nothing to improve his life, or move forward at all. The least you could do is shave… This guy is absolutely repulsive and disgusting, and therefor I am disgusting by association. I know I was young, but if I could go back in time and kick my own ass, I would. Don’t date losers, Jaimie.
