Is it really true that everyone has something that they are good at or that gives them value? I have a lot of trouble taking steps to stop hating myself, mostly because whenever I read about peoples suggestions I identify the suggestions as being feel-good advice with no real substance.

Some examples:
-you should love yourself because you are unique (my immediate thoughts on that are that just because you are one-of-a-kind does not mean that you are valuable)
-everyone is good at something (I just don't actually believe it's absolutely true, more like almost everyone is good at something, except me)
-don't compare yourselves to others, it's a fruitless endeavor since you can't be anyone except yourself (while I agree that you can only be yourself, literally everyone else will always be comparing you against your peers so you're only hurting and deluding yourself by being unaware of how you stack up)
-love yourself because nobody owes you love, so you may be the only person who loves yourself (I agree with this too, but it's pitiful and also sort of deluding yourself. If nobody else cares for you is there something wrong with everyone else, or is there something wrong with you?)

I obviously don't want to hate myself so much but I have trouble accepting (as in don't accept) advice that sounds like pandering.

You are not important. No one is special. Life has no value. You will most likely lead a hedonistic life with little value. Get over it or kill yourself

Tried and failed. Literally can't even do that right. Next piece of advice?

You know what you're right. If my self-loathing ass ever becomes successful by some fluke I'm going to fuck everyone in the ass like Martin Shkreli and extort you all for all the money you've got.
