    The acceptence that I'm never going to be enough in the eyes of my family, is actually freeing, in a way. I am more than enough, in my eyes, and that's what's important to me and my life.

    Everyone always has excuses.

    Even my 'friends' don't want to be with me. I'm just not enough for anyone.

    Never Enough

    It feels like I am never a good enough mother,daughter or sister. Sometimes I just want to shut myself away and tell everyone to go away. I am slowly losing it, I feel like no one understands that I don't mean to be the way I am. It just seems like I am never enough. It's...

    I feel deserted. I don't see my friends

    for months and the times when I've tried to make contact, they always have an excuse but it all comes down to, "Sorry, there are a lot of other things that are more important than you." All I want is to have somebody be there for me, and vice versa. I've never been able to...

    For Myself

    It's funny how no matter what I do, no matter how much I do, I'm never enough for myself.  How does a person's self esteem get that low?  Growing up, my family wasn't perfect, but they loved me.  There were a few things here and there that I know ate away at my...
