I am 39 and single and I hate myself to the point I cannot look in the mirror

DEAR DEIDRE: I DON’T like what I see when I look in the mirror after taking a shower.

I am not massively overweight – in fact I work out regularly, but I just don’t like myself any more and I think I am a disappointment.

I’m a 39-year-old single guy. I can’t get past the fact that I no longer like myself.

The man I see in the mirror is not the man I know. It’s got to the point where I hate myself now.

I can’t bear to look at my reflection or even at old photos of myself. I don’t know why I feel like this. I can’t talk to anyone about it.

DEIDRE SAYS: I am sorry you are so distressed but I wonder how much this is really about your appearance.

Reaching 40 is looming and that can throw up all sorts of issues.

We tend to re-examine what we have achieved in life – career, relationships, social life.

You absolutely can and should talk to someone about this.

I’d recommend some life-coaching to help you positively firm up goals. See lifecoach-directory.org.uk.
