    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 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.

    Insignificance

    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...

    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...

    Am I Nothing?

    I feel like I am nothing to anyone on this

    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...

    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...

    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

    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
