Does Self Hatred Cause Depression Or Depression Cause Self Hatred?

Does Self Hatred Cause Depression Or Depression Cause Self Hatred?

The reason i ask is simple. I took a little test and scored 35 on a self hatred test. Didnt really surprise me as that is something well that i have always had. Something the short time i was in counseling that was never brought up. Does anyone else have this where well they hate themselves? I know i have hated myself for a very long time.

What I would like to share with post posts is that not all talent is a physical talent. I have spent years asking why I am here and what have I ever contributed to this world as I cannot draw, do athletics, etc... I waited for an answer from the Lord and he explained I have talent that is not a physical talent. Hard to explain but I have no learned not to judge myself by what someone else does. I am me, and I am learning to accept what qualities I do possess.

many times our self hatred or low self esteem is due to worrying about what others think of us. Take away that equation and your thoughts and feelings may change drastically.

We do not hate ourselves when we are young. It is the way of the world, the way we are treated, that causes self hatred. That is my opinion. Love Sylxo

Keely thats me as well. Self confidence and self esteem i have always lacked. I dont really get many things in life. I ubderstand a lot yes. But i have always felt out of place like a square peg in a round hole. I have felt i dont belong. Like i am from another planet. In fact as a kid i used to look at the stars and wonder which one i came from.
