I gotta say that the ending is true. Ive dated a few girls who hate themselves and were extremely self-consious. Not fun
@BlazingBowman, if a short book can change that in a girl, the guy she's dating damn sure can do the same.
@GunSupporter, with that type of girl you can tell them their perfect in every way a million times and it wont do sh!t
@GunSupporter, as a girl who has low self-esteem I agree with bowman. I've been with my boyfriend for 5 years and he tells me how beautiful I am everyday. I still look in the mirror and want to cry.
@Pntgirl95, I'm sorry if I over simplify this but do you think a short book is going to make a change that your boyfriend couldn't do? Because that was my whole point.
@GunSupporter, well I think it might just because that would get to a girl much sooner. I didn't have a boyfriend till I was like 15, and that book is for girls probably in the 11-12 range. Theres less damage at that time, less issues and not that I know what it's about, but it probably has ways to deal with stuff as it comes up because highschool is hard, I got bullied so that made stuff worse.
@GunSupporter, my girlfriend has depression and self esteem issues but we love each other a lot and she tells me how much i help her all the time. I just want her to love herself as much as i love her and see the beauty she has. It can be annoying sometimes but its worth it to me.
@Pntgirl95, if it helps, just think about how much you must mean to him if you've been together for 5 years. There's people out there who are completely unwanted and yet are still full of themselves and think too highly of themselves. You're already better and more valuable than them in every way. Any imperfection can be fixed, and any quality can be improved. There's very few things that trap someone in a hopeless situation.
@Kangaroo Jacked, Thank you that's really beautiful that's honestly how I do get through bad days. When I have days where I feel really awful I just think that he cares and that he thinks I'm beautiful and it's all that matter and all I need to get through the day. It's not that he doesn't help just, maybe something sooner would have been more preventative.
@BlazingBowman, you are entirely correct; my ex was insufferably self hating and it heavily contributed to our breakup because she convinced herself that she deserved to be miserable and basically threw her life away with alcohol and bad influences.
@GunSupporter, I agree that a single book like that probably isn't going to be able to change a person that dramatically. But neither is a girl's boyfriend. It's not the job of the significant other to try and fix a person. They're a partner, not a therapist. You have to help yourself first (that seems to be the whole point of the book).
Wow, I like this uploader, he sure is a Funny Guy
I can imagine if a store decides to sell a lot of these, a bunch of feminazis would protest that store without ever opening a single one
@EddySteady, By 'protest' do you mean "start a 38degrees petition against the store, give it 1* Yelp reviews, tweet mean things about them and stick purely to things they can do from their iPhones without any real effort"?
That's irony, right?
HA! IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE THEY THINK GUYS LIKE FEMINISTS!!!
@ear potato, girls with confidence are feminazis now? Okay...
@Dexios S Divine, the person burning the book.
@ear potato, nazis don't burn books dummy.lol
@GunSupporter, they burn people
@GunSupporter, they actually did in Nazi Germany.
Tumblr in a nutshell.
I need a copy of that book. I bloody hate myself.
*cough* Don't judge a book by its cover *cough*
Well you burned off the corner so I can't stand there
With a name like "hohentai" and not a picture of herself I'm sure she's a land whale.
Don't judge a book by its cover.
