You know what I hate about myself?

How much I hate myself.

There is no good reason for my self-esteem to be so low. There’s nothing that wrong with me. But, still, I see myself in the mirror and I cringe. And I notice my reaction to my reflection and I’m repelled. I’m unconfident because I don’t have confidence. I’m shy because I prefer not to hear myself.

I will not win.

Because I will always have flaws. Scratches to consider a gorge. Imperfections to label as inconceivables.

I will never be perfect.

It would be awfully nice if, one day, I could come out of hiding and accept that.

I used to have a coworker who had a poster in his office that read "the good is the enemy of perfection." I hated that. I always thought it should be "perfection is the enemy of the good."

At least you realize that you have low-self confidence... I think that's over half the battle on the road to recovery. Sorry if I sound like a really bad self help book, but I'm serious.

I'm stating the obvious here but, nobody's perfect. Accepting who you are is perhaps more difficult than being perfect.
