    It's really stupid. No matter what I do,

    I can't do anything right. I destroy friendships. I get below passing on tests. I even managed to be the cause of my parents break up several years ago. There is almost nothing I do right. Maybe it's because I'm a worthless person in general. Maybe it's because I'm too pathetic...

    Not Exactly Always

    I know I don't always mess things up, but right now I'm tired and it sure seems that way. I have accidentally let people down when I didn't mean to, then sometimes I mess up little things and don't do a certain thing right. Sometimes I mess up things I specifically try not to.

    Once Again

    I was hesitant to write my story on here because it seems so petty when I explain it to others but to me, it's practically driving me crazy. Most of the mistakes I've made in relationships (including friendships) with people have been my fault entirely. It's becoming an issue now...

    but ruin good things. The bad thing about it is I don't know I'm messing things up until it's too late. I wanna be able to say everything is going to work out but that would be a lie. I don't know what to do.
