    Failed

    I can't come up with a better title than that.. I feel like my life is going nowhere. As of right now, I'm in college, but I've had to push back graduation multiple times because I kept failing classes. I just saw another "F" on my transcript and it was just the icing on the...

    You know I wish I could do things right.

    .. But sometimes I doubt myself. My mother doesn't want me as her child, my dad thinks that I won't pass my year twelve exams in tw years, both say I'm a failure, idiot, screw up, mistake. I feel like it sometimes. I want to live a happy life one where I won't have to pretend to...

    I Am A Failure

    Ever since I was little, I had always been a failure. No, I am not a school drop-out, I am an intelligent women that had always been over looked. I never been acknowledged for anything. I was always the little girl that was not 'Great' that would be praised, or the 'Worst' that...

    Well, I finally did it.

    I failed at a wonderful relationship I was in. Everything I have ever done in my life, I have literally failed. Everything. He hates me now and I also hate myself. After my baby is born I will officially be homeless. I am so dependent on him. I feel so protected by him. Nothing...

    I am just a worthless burden on my family.

    I'm 19 years old still in high school, and I'm doing horribly. I live with my loving but at times overbearing mother. She has loved me regardless of the lies I would tell and that I still tell.. We are currently homeless staying with a friend of her's, who gossips constantly...

    I have failed so spectacularly.

    I have failed the ones most dear to me. But I have failed her the most. All the sacrifices I made, all the pain, all of it for nothing. I was supposed to help, I was supposed to show her the way. I loved her fiercely. perhaps too fiercely. I am just as everyone predicted I would...

    It took me a while to realize it.

    I always felt lonely. So why does it hurt so much all of a sudden? I think I finally understand. It hurts, not because I'm downing in this well, but because for just a brief moment, I reached the surface of the water. And for just for that moment, I felt the air, and the warmth...

    teens. Believe me, I feel your pain and understand what you are going through, but please don't give up. The bulk of your lives are ahead of you and there is plenty of time for things to turn around. Myself on the other hand, I can't say the same for. A little backstory: I am...

    I keep losing everything.

    I left my phone in a public bathroom, my wallet was stolen at a bus stop, and I lost my keys three times this month. I have to pay for that ****, over and over again. The absence of all that missing crap is a constant reminder that I suck at even the basic tasks. Total failure.

    When I'm small, I'm a dumb.

    Today, I'm an unemployed fresh graduate. Next year, my family will be broke because they let me to study master degree. I just feel like im a burden after all. Perhaps, terminating myself will be the best solution.

    I am 30, with 3 fatherless kids

    and not even able to work due to lack of transportation. This is all my fault. I should've kept my legs closed. Every time I try to get ahead I get pulled back farther than the time before. I wish I could give the kids to people that could raise them better and give them more. I...

    Really Not Much to Say About This

    I've failed in all the important areas of my life.  After awhile, you kind of get used to it. I'm not afraid of failure, and I'm pretty at peace with it.  So, don't try to take this away from me. Here's an incomplete list: son parent spouse...
