    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    Generations Of Isolation

    I've always felt like a misfit. I don't feel connected. Now I see this in my child and I blame myself.

    Have you ever worked on something

    so hard and didn't get it? People say " Try you're best and you'll be good enough" but that doesn't apply to me. My best isn't good enough. No matter how hard I try and try I never get past square one. It's like you're just meant to be in that same place to never get better and...

    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...

    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.

    Will I Ever Be Enough?

    "It's all your fault" "It was a mistake" "It should never have happened" "You don't have what I need.." "Why are you so dumb?" "It's ok, not everyone can do it" "You never get it" "You always mess up" And the list goes on and on and on... Just some of the quotes that I've been...

    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...

    I'm sure some of the stuff I feel comes from my past. But it is a real reality I am being faced with each day.. And I really just don't know how to get a "grip" on it, and learn HOW to be different. I never feel good enough. EVER. And it is even hard for me to admit that, because...
