I Disappoint People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 116 People

    Constantly

    Teachers, parents, friends, would-be friends and sometimes myself.   I make promises that I don't fulfill.  At times whilst knowing it which makes it even worse.  For example, today I had arranged to go to Pride London with a couple of people who are mad enough...

    Sadly...

    Sadly I think I disappoint way too many people. i let others down who believe in me, and its not like I try to. But it just happens. I wish it wouldn't because for once I want to make someone proud instead of dissapointing them =(

    Downer

    It seems that it is the only thing I am good at. I not only let my loved ones down, but also feel disappointed in myself.
