I Feel Insignificant

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 178 People

    I have friends, but not "hang out with" friends,

    the only person I really talk to at school is my boyfriend. I feel like I don't matter, I want someone to talk to and laugh with about random ****, I want a friend who has common interests and is on the same level with me

    I have a constant feeling of insignificance of

    my actions. I chose to study art out of passion, yet after years of studies I am ridden with doubts of it being just an ego game, artsy joke making with no further meaning. It doesn't change anything in the existence nor it does help anyone. Everything I do feels insignificant...

    Why Do I Exist

    The day i was born my dad left. I wonder if this is because i was his unwanted child. all throughout my life i have tried and played just about every sport i could think of, and i was never good at any of them. I was never good at any academic activities, like art, or writing or...

    Who Cares?

    I volunteered to care for my mother-in-law who has dementia.  Poor thing cannot remember that she ate 5 minutes ago.  She is still full of feelings and needs though.  Needs which I cannot meet since they have to do with a memory she cannot catch hold of. I moved...

    When I try to tell my mother about how I feel,

    she always tries to say that she feels the same way, and how I'm perfectly okay. But I'm not.

    Discarded And Unimportant

    My husband and I haven't been intimate in going on 12 yrs now (been married for 18 yrs). We have no children together, however he does have 2 daughters. Each one has lost and/or given up most of their kids so there's no "grandkids" running around our house. All of my friends have...

    It's Actually A Good Feeling

    I'm A Nobody

     Every time I look up old friends, it seems they all have went on to do amazing things while I haven't really gone far at all.  I feel left behind and insignificant.

    Show Me That You Care...

    What do you do when something you feel you cannot live without is not working properly? You fix it. If you do something wrong, you spend hours trying to figure out how to either get it back to normal or make it better. You are a perfectionist, or so you say. Sadly for me, this...

    Your Cared For

    Look, my best friend says that she isn't important and people wouldn't notice if she just disappeared. Well guess what, I would, she's my rock. By for some reason, it doesn't register in her mind that I care...someone out there cares, just like I care for her. Seriously, so don't...

    Urgh!!

    Feeling extremely low about everything.  The simplest things upset me and I feel I'm a target for every angry idiot about.  I'm hoping this feeling will pass, I think I am being super sensitive x
