Smile Learn to Love Yourself and BE HAPPY?

How many of you, have been told these things before? You know random internet people, to family, friends, strangers, etc. "Just learn to love yourself" "Learn to be happy, if your not happy then no one will like you" etc.

I always hear these things, from everyone and never quite understood them. How can you have yourself be happy when your depressed all the time and then your anxiety is bothering you, among other issues in your life?

It is quite difficult no? Anyone have these options actually work for them?

Whenever I hear this crap, I have an overwhelming urge to strangle the person saying it.

See, despite the fact that I feel like a worthless waste of oxygen, I think I do love myself. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that I'm the only person who loves or cares about me. And that's precisely one of the reasons I'm so unhappy.

This is actually a very significant source of my anger. I feel like I deserve better in life (presumably because I love myself), but my circumstances never improve. Perhaps I would be better off if I truly hated myself.

Oh man, I could not agree with you more! I feel the same way!
