I Am Discouraged

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 101 People

    I believe in myself. I believe

    Does anyone else feel torn up

    when someone else gets to do something you really want to? I have been trying to plan this trip to another state for half a year, but one thing after the other has made me start to feel like it wasn't a good idea. I was still barely holding onto the idea, when my friend comes in...

    Lost

    At least one time in everyone's life we get

    slapped in the face with realism. When this happens we do 1 or 2 things. 1. We fight what is making us feel bad. 2. We cry and get frustrated over said discouragement. I am now going through the biggest slap in the face I have ever experienced. I'm not even sure I can recover...

    I have been working really hard at my job,

    but I feel completed discouraged there. I feel like everyday I try to do my absolute best and I always fall short of my boss's expectations. I try to ask questions and understand what she wants me to do, but she never fails to point out every single thing that I did wrong or...

    "Don't eat. Stop eating.

    I've always tried to stay positive about life

    but lately that has been getting harder and harder to do. I am so sick of feeling replaceable and just unwanted. Once a year I get to go to the big city and see my "friend", every Halloween. Last year when I went we had tons of fun, danced all night and I really loved it. I...

    I feel like I'm doing nothing with my life and going nowhere. I'm stuck in the same rut, the same job, the same routine. I don't know what to do to break free from this cycle. I think that's how a lot of people end up joining the Army. Stuck in a life with no accomplishment, no...
