Well, I'm in my self-loathing state of mind yet again. (yay)
How do I deflect the negative thoughts?

Go do something positive for the world so you can feel better about yourself. Go hug somebody or volunteer at a soup kitchen. This might not be a bandaid solution but over time - it will incrementally build up your confidence until you no longer have any negative feelings about yourself that you shouldn't have.1

You shut the fuck up. I'm being serious, get mad at yourself for thinking that way. Put on some music to motivate you at stop you from thinking. Go outside and enjoy the sun and the fresh breeze. Start thinking more positive, even if you don't believe it at first, just keep on saying, repeat it, repeat it, and keep on repeating positive messages.
Watch a movie or a show that will make you laugh. Go out to the gym, work out.
You have to do something that keeps your mind active and concentrated on something besides those stupid hateful thoughts.
I was like you, hated myself and cried many nights, thought of... well, you know, and now I'm much better cause I've reminded myself how fucking awesome I am. I've repeated that so much that now I believe it.
You can seek help on a therapist too, they will help you a lot. I've never gone to one but many people say it's very helpful.3
