    ..

    i don't feel needed. i try to help, and i fail. i try and fix things, and i end up making them worse. i try making things better in my family, and it does nothing but make things worse. i don't feel needed or wanted, and im started to really think that i am not needed at all.

    Not Needed

    I am not needed. The world goes on. Life continues to live. Time never stops, and in the grand scheme of things I am not needed at all. I might be a "want" for other people but I am not a "need"

    Lost

         I haven't been on in a long while and that's only because anyone I have come across recently haven't been making me feel so great about who I am or what I go through... That includes my mother and my now recent ex bf... It is tough and it's simply hard to say what is on...

    Visible Only When One Needs Help And Invisible Then Not Needed

    At Lest That's How I Feel

    I have been told that so many times it's what I believe, so I live my life for others this way I will feel needed. Is that selfish? I may help them, but it is for my own selfish reason. And they could have got it done themselves so in the end I really wasn't needed.
