    I'm worthless. Not good enough

    for anyone. I know I'll be alone for the rest of my life because I have no friends and no one who gives a **** about me. No one deserves me in their life....why am I even still alive

    No matter how hard I try

    or how good I am I will never be good enough. It will never happen or ever exist. Sometimes I imagine it will be but in reality it won't be. That makes me so depressed and upset with myself because I can't do anything about it.

    The other day (for work) a shop asked, for fun, what grade I would give a car they had in their shop ('Vette Stingray). For those who don't know, classic cars can be graded from 1-6. 1 is a mint, garaged, trailered car. Basically an A+. Down to a 6, which is basically a parts car...

    I let my wife down in some way EVERY day and leave her frustrated with me. I procrastinate as I'd rather do nothing than do something and get it wrong - I nearly always get it wrong. I've been like this all my life and my wife is realising only now after 16 years that...

    Often I Think This

    I have heard from some people "don't be too hard for yourself". I'm trying to understand and live the advice. Sometimes my mind wanders off into perversion, which sometimes leads to an action which brings trouble. I still get paranoid quickly. I know what helps though: God, a...

    I have never been enough to my father
