I Feel I Don't Matter

In everyday life & In the grand scheme of things.... I just don't matter. 354 People

    Globally

    I know I matter and I am important to few people close to me - my family, coworkers, my sub and maybe few others... But that is not enough for me (why I am being called perfectionist or martinet?) But from global perspective I don't believe I or my actions matter and can change...

    Just A Drop Of Water In An Endless Sea?

    I understand that many people (myself included) sometimes feel as if what we do or who we are doesn't matter. Since making my initial post in this group, I've come to realize that every person has value, and can touch the lives of others. This may, however, not always be obvious...

    Insignificance

    I Feel I Don't Matter

    I feel I don't matter. The world won't change much without me in it. Although I helped a lot of people it was never a life or death matter  they probably could have gotten by without my help. I don't see how I matter.

    I Just Don't Matter....

    I feel like I don't matter to anyone, that who cares, if I am no longer here, and no longer alive. I know I sure don't. I feel like I just don't matter to anyone, and feel like there is no one that really needs me, or wants me. I just feel like I don't matter, not to me, not to...

    I realize that many people are suffering greatly; whether due to illness, poverty, depression, addiction, etc. As such, I want to state right up front, that I am extremely grateful for what I do have and do not take it lightly. What (if anything) I mean to others, however, is...

    Legacy

    "A man dies ... only a few circles in the water prove that he was ever there. And even they quickly disappear. And when they're gone, he's forgotten, without a trace, as if he'd never even existed. And that's all." ~ Wolfgang Borchert

    I Don't Think I Can Try No More

    Honestly I can't put all my energy into it no more. If I wanted to be ignored, I would just have stayed in my corner where I am comfortable. It's fine the walls are officially back up this time they are concrete.
