Alright youve told us all the stuff you hate, now tell us what you like about yourself, and your life, and we wont take "nothing" for an answer!! Its always so much more easier to think about the things you hate about yourself, and harder to think of all good, but if you look deep inside yourself youll realize all the wonderful things in your life! give it a try and just name a few!! Take care Machelle and know that we are thinking of you!!
I am going to give you a short answer as I know you to be a good, kind and loving person whom I think is having a bad day.
I think everybody gets down on themselves from time to time. I don't think you need to get over it so much as get through it. I also think if you continually say "I hate myself," it becomes a self-fulfilling kind of thing. Try to be more positive. The more you come to accept yourself for whom you are, the better you are going to feel about yourself.
Love yourself first as you are the most important person and from there you can share all your love.
You are not what you look like on the outside but who you are on the inside.

It's easy to fall into the trap of always looking at our negative selves, especially when we look around and see other people moving through life seemingly so effortlessly. I know you are a generous caring soul and a loving mother and wife. Don't let yourself get bogged down with self doubt. Machelle is perfect just the way she is. Now are we going to share that chocolate bar or what?!
Good Morning Machelle
How are you today, feeling better about you? I said a prayer for you last night and I had the angels sprinkle some angel dust on you while you were sleeping.
OK, sweetie, here is an idea........go to some of the flea markets, make your necklaces and perhaps you can set up at a craft fair and sell some necklaces. That will put you out talking to people and you may find someone you like that already has something in common with you. Have a garage sale or yard sale.
Start doing some of the things you like. Take a step outside your safe zone, it will still be there when you need to go back to it.
Hope your day is sunny.
