I Feel Small

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    I always wanted to be someone big,

    until I realized that someone bigger always takes over in the end. I've never been much of a leader outside of group projects in class. How lame. Why can't I be the person who is in student council or the person with the amazing internship every single year or the amazing...

    Insubstantial,inconsequential

    I feel so small in my skin,nothing I actually say or do or think would ever make a dent. I feel insubstantial even with those I am closest too. I feel flimsy in their eyes. Incapable. Weak, a novelty to amuse yourself with. I need to know others feel this too. I may feel...

    Or Unimportant

    Sometimes, when I look around and see the sky, calm and blue above the immense amount of people rushing from place to place, it makes me realize how big and complicated the world is, and how little it would matter if I wasn't there. I sometimes feel like I'm being swallowed by...
