Here are the opinions and the reactions (good and bad!) of readers just like you.
“I just found this amazing piece. After suffering from low self-esteem for fifty years, I have been making some real progress. Your writing clearly elucidates what I’ve been slow to discover. Thank you so much!”-On the article: I Hate Myself: A Brief Guide on Self-hatred by Peter Nielsen on Medium
“Ho-lee shit. Amazing article. Very eye-opening for me, as someone who definitely does this (usually on an unconscious level)”-A Reddit user on the article: I Hate Myself: A Brief Guide on Self-hatred.
“AWESOME article. Thanks for sharing. My biggest takeaway – “To have such control over anything, you need to have an absurd amount of information about that thing. But in reality, you can’t have that amount of information about anything, no matter how hard you search.”-A Reddit user on the article: Stop Trying to Control Everything.
“Interesting piece. I like the idea of looking up at myself. I don’t do that enough, nor do the people I love.”-A Reddit user on the article: This is How You Build Self-respect and Stop Being Needy.
“I love this. I find that the root of most of my negative emotions — anger, anxiety, even laziness is when I take a good thing (the suit) and make it EVERYTHING”– A Reddit user on the article: This is How You Build Self-respect and Stop Being Needy.
“While I was slightly annoyed to see that this article promotes a Jordan Petersen video, as he’s a known transphobe, the rest of the article is good. I had an epiphany about this topic earlier in the year, and I’ve felt a lot freer since- that protecting yourself from risk isn’t actually protecting yourself from pain, and that pain and death will follow you even if you make the “safe” choices.”-A Reddit user on the article: It Is Dangerous to be Safe
“Decent read. like it a lot. In my experience this all comes down tiny perceptions about yourself that you don’t know you’re making everyday.”-A Reddit user, and the founder of LifeUncivilized.com, on the article: I Hate Myself: A Brief Guide on Self-hatred
“”You have a passion that, once you find, will change your life and make you forever happy.” I am currently working on dropping this misconception. Thanks for sharing.”-A Reddit user on the article: I Hate My Life: 15 Ways to Make it More Miserable
“There is such a fine line between excellence and perfectionism. Many times I have found myself on the perfectionism side because of fear, shame and strong desire to impress others. When I think back to when this started, I found it was how I was raised. It was my parents’ way or the highway and I felt love was given depending on how well one performed in school or on the tasks given. This is an extremely difficult habit to break. Your article makes it sound very easy. To just give myself permission. That’s it?”-On the article: This Happens When You Give Yourself The Permission to Screw Up, by Caroline Ndirangu on Medium
“I’ve owned my own property out in the country for 15 years, and still don’t feel safe and secure. I have a house, I don’t know how to have a home. The sound of a car door too close will cause me to freeze, and will cause a panic attack and / or dissociation. I always have a plan and resources to leave – meetings, vacations, day to day living including my house, I can be gone and have all I need in minutes. It’s a shitty way to be. Years of treatment and therapy have helped but I get to a point and stop making progress. I’m close to 50, and the dysfunction I was raised in had a huge part in my issues. I’m glad these things are finally getting some attention.”-A Reddit user on the article: Do You Feel Safe and Secure in Your Life?
“Thank you for this advice! It puts things in perspective.”-A Reddit user on the article: How to Get Yourself Back After a Shame Storm.
“omg I needed this! thanks”-A Reddit user on the article: This is How You Build Self-respect and Stop Being Needy.
