I Feel I Don't Matter

    Dust In The Wind...

    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...

    I Am Not Confidant

    At first glance, I think I might be selfish or overeacting when it comes to this subject, but then once I force these feelings down they might come back up. I have a good life, great friends, and a loving girlfriend with whom I will be spending our 3 month aniversery on...

    "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 feel like I am nothing to anyone on this

    planet. Today I saw a person who pretends to be my friend in class texting like 40 people in her contacts. She never even talks to me outside of class. I have 1 friend in my contacts and I'm pretty much invisible. I just want to get out of this town and out of school. I'm so...

    Poverty... "We think sometimes

    that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." Mother Teresa

    Lately, I have been feeling like I went to

    school for nothing and don't enjoy the job I have as much as I thought I would. Pair that with seeming to mess up my friendships over little things and feeling like I am going nowhere in the love department. I feel like I don't have many people to talk to, if any. I feel like no...

    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.

    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...

    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 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.

    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...
