I need to gain confidence? How? Please help!

I've been bullied, and physically beat up by my older brother for years. No matter what I do, I can't get self confidence, at all. I believe every negative thing I hear. Fat, ugly.. Etc. Even though my friends always tell me otherwise.. I can't seem to believe them. My brother used to kick me, and punch me and make me call myself fat, ugly, or that I'm a b*tch. If I didn't, he wouldn't stop hurting me. It's so hard for me to actually accept any compliments. I really need confidence.. But I don't know how to get it! I've played many sports, been on teams. Normally that gives people confidence, but that never worked for me. I really need help... :(

Everyone who has said those things to you is wrong. Don't listen to their nasty words. None of it is true. You have to believe in yourself. and tell yourself that you can ! Don't let the walls crowd in on you you gotta be strong and break down the walls !

Yeah. I was bullied too; kids called me stupid and ugly and weird and gross all through elementary school. I'm just one of the lucky ones whose morale was never really affected.
If I were you I'd remind yourself of all the things you can do and accomplishments you've done in life when people tear you down. And remember you don't need to look a certain way to succeed. We're all beautiful or handsome.

Where are your parents? Call the police! That will stop him before he kills you. You may be saving his future wifes life as well. Do not tolerate abuse. Do not tolerate bullies! You can do it! Report him.
