I Don't Want People To Feel Sorry For Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 510 People

    I know that I've lost a lot.

    But you telling me "I feel sorry for you" won't help me and in matter of a fact I'd take it as an insult.

    I Don't Deserve It

     I don't feel the least bit of sympathy for myself, so why should anyone else?  I don't deserve anyone to feel sorry for me, I'd have to be better person to deserve sympathy.

    Please Don't

    I really hope you don't mistake my telling of my stories with the idea that I want people to feel sorry for me. Granted I have experienced a lot of sadness in my life but me telling the story or writing a book about my experiences is an attempt to share with others those moments...

    I want empathy, somebody

    who understands my pain, the things I'm going through. Sympathy and pity aren't wanted or needed.

    I want respect. I am a survivor to extreme emotional, mental, physical, and sexual abuse. In saying that I have my deal of problems. Many would probably say I suffer from mental illness. Many would say I am crazy. But to me... I am strong. I am 25 years old, and...

    I hate people feeling sorry

    for me because it puts to much attention on me. People feel bad for me because my back pack is to heavy and i cant use my locker but i can handle my problems unlike most of the people in my school who cheat of me or take advantage of me

    Don't Get The Wrong Impression Of Me

    Quite a few of the stories I've written on here have a negative slant to them, but that's only because I'm writing about how I'm feeling. How I feel is how I feel and I won't apologize for that. Instead of writing in a journal, which is something I always say I'm going to do but...
