It's been getting worse lately and I always thought the root of the problem was my ex. I felt so bad around him and most of the time he made me feel like shit. He's gone now and i feel even worse than I've ever felt before. I look at myself in the mirror and I really hate what I see, I listen to myself talk and realize I'm not all that smart either. I don't have a great personality and when it comes down to it I have nothing going for me. I've tried so much stuff to improve the type of person I am, but regardless of what I do I'm ashamed to go out in public sometimes. My head up and proud...never happens, I walk around with my head down and constantly compare myself to other people who are doing way better in life than me. It's starting to get really pathetic now and I just want to get myself out of this self loathing loop I'm stuck in. What can I do ? I'm sure this is nothing new, and a lot of people feel this way about themselves, especially girls. But I just need help, or someone to take me in the right direction.
