The problem with having low self esteem is that your perspective is so warped you could be really intelligent and you’d still think you were stupid. You could be so so beautiful and still look in the mirror and cringe. And it’s not even a consistent thing. Some days you wake up feeling really good about yourself and everything is okay but it’s such a fragile confidence that’s so easily shattered. And it sucks because you’re always left unsure and stuck between this need for self-positivity and the notion of ‘but I don’t want to lie to myself’.
