    Sometimes Realism Hits

      There are days when I don't feel that I am good enough, days when I feel that I have let down everyone in my life who thought that I was going to be someone and go places. These days are dark in every sense of the word for they are the days when I know that I don't...

    I Don't Think I Ever Have

    I don't think I ever have felt good enough. Today I definatly don't feel good enough. I have a man who makes me feel insecure through no fault of his own. Infact perhaps calling him mine is an overstatement.I don't know. He's a closed book. 2 ppl have implied they don't...

    I Dont Feel Accepted

    I am about to be a junior in high school. I'm not popular but I'm not really a nerd either. I kinda just don't belong with anybody. I used to hang with the rebels cause I like their style, but I didn't like the things they did. And eventually they didn't like me either. I'm not...

    Sometimes I feel like joke to people.

    I feel like to the boy that I admire, I'm someone he jokes about with his friends and I'm so paranoid that his friends are observing my every move all the time. I feel like people lie about liking me to protect my feelings and I feel as if I don't really belong anywhere right...

    Sometimes

    I know I still have a lot of growing up to do, because sometimes I feel like I'm just not good enough for the world. This feeling comes and goes. I think the last time I was really facing it harshly was in March and April. Everything that mattered to me was slowly...

    I'm Always Down Playing Everything I Do

    I never seek praise for work I have done, even when I know I probably deserve some praise for it. I always feel like I am not deserving of compliments and feel as if people are not complimenting me as much as they are showing pity.

    I Am Broken.....But Worth Fixing

    I am not really sure if I am the only one who feels like this or if this is something must struggle with, but I feel completely all alone and simply just not good enough. Maybe because I am a child awarded to state at age 15 and because of that issue of abandonment I will always...

    New Vs Old

    Growing up I was always considered to be a little weird. I didn't really know who I was, lived in an imaginary world and didn't have many friends. I had many walls to the world and was really quiet and almost never showed people who I really was. I also had a co ordination...
