Do you blame yourself for everything wrong or bad that happens in your life? Do you also blame yourself when good things don’t happen; when you fail at something or when you do not reach your goal? Do you find it hard to forgive yourself?
If you answered yes to more than one of those questions, chances are you’re caught in self-hatred or as some people would prefer to call it, self-loathing. Though there is no specific cause as to why some of us become a victim of self-hatred, the usual causes are bitter childhood experiences, parental/family pressure, or continuous discouragement in the past.
Self-hatred is not a mental disorder, but it certainly is not a good place to be in. So, can you do something to get rid of it? Definitely, yes!
