    I don't know why every achievement I get

    or everything that I do right I just feel like I failed. And I'm not worthy. I was chosen from my high school as the city scholar (not trying to brag or whatever I don't mean to sound like snooty and stuff) but it doesn't feel like I got anything. I accepted but I know there...

    I only had one child in this life,

    and I lost control over him a long, long time ago. He is only 22 years old, but he has already made the biggest mess of his life. He was given so many opportunities that other kids his age never got, and has thrown them all away. He has burned every meaningful bridge with a...

    26 Year Old With Irrationally Low Self Esteem

    Hi all, The title basically says it all in terms of what I'm writing about. The details are a bit more long winded. I'm 26, and live in a major metro area of the US. I grew up in this area, one of four kids. Growing up, I had to grow accustomed to a strict upbringing, one that...

    I feel like I am bound to fail at my life.

    I lack the ability to recognize social cues, and I don't know when to end a joke. So much of my humor is based on sarcasm that I think others don't know when I'm joking or when I am being serious. Most of my humor relies on using stupid voices saying equally outrageous things...

    When You "Live To Work" - For Someone Else - It Never Ends Well.

    It is best that I start by telling you a little about myself. I was born in an old New England mill town in the 1950's. Even though I was born there, my family did not live there, but rather lived some miles away in the poorest part of a suburban town. My father was a carpenter...

    I suppose I don't feel like a failure. I know I am. Whatever I do. If I try my best. I fail. If I don't try at all. I fail. If I wait patiently. I fail. If I try to focus on something else, pretend none of it matters. I fail. I've been told all my life that I'm a failure. That I...
