How can I boost my self esteem?

I dont think I'm pretty, I dont think I'm skinny, I dont think I'm good enough, I dont think guys like me, I dont think I'm good at anything. I just want to feel like I belong, I'm wanted and I dont have to worry about anything. But I cant feel that way :/

You are pretty. You think God made some girls pretty and some not? No, He doesn't pick favorites! It's just stupid magazines that people use to form their definition of "pretty." You are gorgeous, beautiful and amazing. The right guy will like you for who you are, not for what you look like. :) who cares what people think? If they judge you before they know you, they aren't worth it anyway, and they won't be good friends/ a good boyfriend to you. :)

STOP. Just stop. Just tell yourself that you don't give a f*ck about being pretty or popular or liked by guys. If you still care, pretend that you don't. Fake it 'till you make it. That's what I did, and now I've realized that I really don't care anymore about conforming to society's ideal image of a teenage girl. It's harsh, but I hope it works for you too.

I think you are beautiful, you don't need to be skinny, you exceed good enough, guys don't know the personality they're missing, everyone's got that something, and you belong to someone just haven't found home yet, you are wanted, and you don't have to worry about me judging you bad i hope i help:)

Don't be who anyone else wants you to be. My answer would be: Read the Bible.

Depends on what is causing it, You or others

Weight

I doubt that should be a concern, and remember your still growing

Looks

everyone has preferences, dont try to use products to make yourself look better, just accept it, most people wish they looked different, some might wish they looked like you, dont stare into mirrors for hours & criticize every little detail.

Guys

most relationships at this time dont last anyway, guys are different than girls, and most people, guys & girls alike look for popularity, not personality.

Good at anything

try new hobbies, roller blading, ice skating, swimming, hiking, biking, ceramics, mabie make videos or something

Belong

I get the same feeling, I usually do stuff at least 10 years before Myself, just have to find the right people, you'll find more as you get older

Worrying

Just face it, try to be relaxed, wether you worry or dont it will come anyway. Try to do something productive instead of worrying, so you dont have something else to worry about.

Take a deep breath and stick a certain finger to the sky. That's what I did. My self esteem isn't much better but it did a bunch for my humour for some reason.

learn to be an optimist or more preferrably, a realist who can see both sides and where things truly lie.
