I have a baby gil at the age of 2 . ever since I gave birth I've lost my confidence when I look at my self and compare to my friends I feel unloved and not part of my peers I just hate myself I've lost weight because of the hatred I carry in my heart everyday. Yes I hate my baby daddy for making me pregnant and ruining my life like this .. Some of my friends have finished school and are now in varsity I am only going to do grade 11 next year.. I just need help in getting my confidence back and loving myself again i and find a way to forgive my baby daddy for the rejection he gave me when I fell pregnant ... Guys plz help me to forgive and forget about every thing

Hi Philanqo. Thanks for your comment. Here's an article I think you should read http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/girl-stories/mother-16-matriculant-22/ The worst thing you can do is compare yourself to other people. Your journey has been different but that doesn't mean you can't achieve your goals or be successful. Hatred is a negative emotion. You need to remember your power and that you are capable of anything and you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Here's another article you can read to boost your confidence http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-life/your-confidence-check/

I also have a problem with my family they have totally rejected me at least if I had some support and love at home I would cope but they always judge me call me names I know I've done wrong and I've tried many times to show regret but they always treat me as an outsider Christmas is coming soon and they haven't talked about buying me new clothes or anything of that sort they bought their own things and ignored me I feel left out worse by my own family we are all girls and should be supporting one another but here I am being lonely and unloved when I talk to them they always remind me of my past and show total rejection towards me... How can I make them love me like their own family and understand that I don't need much from them but love and support this really kills me :(
