I have dealt with Judgement in myself in my thoughts and actions. The thoughts, hence, produce related feelings such as anxiety, anger, and depression. We may not always see them as being hurtful but they surely are. Each time you linger on one of these negative thoughts; you’re buying into a lesser, duller version of yourself. Don’t do it! . This is some of the judgement i put on myself I’m worthless , not good enough , useless , broken , a waste of time and space , a mistake , empty , hated , no one cares about me or likes me , too sensitive , i don’t belong here , a monster , fat , ugly , stupid, bad person or horrible person , no one wants me , unloved , unwanted , hopeless , breaking , unhappy , dislike , destroy , lost , backwards , failure, problem , alone , messed up , unworthy, a disappointment , unsuccessful , misunderstood , unimportant , different , fake , nothing , hurt , ignored , not okay , weak , i hate myself so much and honestly i feel completely worthless everyday of my life , i don’t even know who i am anymore and all of these negative thoughts and voices i believe and think they are true about me and i feel like i have let everyone down , bad student , bad friend , boring , unremarkable , uninteresting , unimpressive , awful , disgusting , terrible , unamazing , nasty, , unpleasant , dumb , lonely , not able to be happy at all and i have to many bad days to be a good person .

@chouchpeople12 "Each time you linger on one of these negative thoughts you’re buying into a lesser, duller version of yourself" - that really resonates with me. I feel like some days I have like a broken record in my head just listing off all the bad things about myself like you said. What can we do to get it to stop?

Whenever my thoughts get to be too much I turn on some music. I may take a walk clean the house or just lay in the bath but I keep the music on because the happier the music the more I wanna sing the more I sing the better I feel because I'm not thinking about everything around me

This is exactly how I feel. I was so shocked to read this as I originally didn’t know how to explain without confusing the reader. I feel so negative about myself, so worthless. 
I just want to cry and I am constantly thinking I’m worthless because it feels like no one understands me or likes me.

I’m just trying to keep these thoughts out of my head as much as possible. Not having much luck lately. Finally boiled over and cried most of this morning. I don’t cry before cancer. Now it feels some days like I’m a hair away from tears. Depends on the triggers.

i have been struggling with these same self negative thoughts for the past 3 months! I’ve tried several antidepressants but none seem to work, or maybe im not giving it enough time? Currently im taking Prozac 30mg in the morning and 30mg mirtazapine at night for sleep. Been on these for about 3 weeks. I wake up everyday with a feeling of impending doom and the rest of the day Im just counting down the hours to bedtime. I have a 7 year old son and have not been able to care for him like I want to. Thank god for his stepdad. Im not working because I can’t hold a job and it makes me feel like a burden. Everyday I hate myself and wish I could just be “normal” or at least happy. I have not laughed or smiled in 3 months! Im worried how this is effecting my son and my relationship. I stay isolated in my room away from my family. I pray and beg god every night to just let me wake up wanting to live!
