I Feel Worthless

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,506 People

    I'm so tired of always being this weak.

    I'm so tired of never letting my inner voice speak. I'm so tired of never being heard. I'm so tired of my opinion never being counted by others. I'm so tired of always giving but never receiving. I'm so tired of being always nice, but always so stupid too. I'm so tired of others...

    Tired but I cant sleep.

    Feeling honest but I can't seem to describe what I feel. What matters in my life? I've been ramping up to start since I was born but even if I do, will it matter? I know helping people one at a time is viewed as a good deed but do those matter? I want to do something larger than...

    Sometimes I feel worthless.

    I feel like I'm not worth anyone's time or attention, and it sucks.

    I tried to help but ended up making things

    worse. I feel like I'm just ******* things up more and more lately. I know she's just sick of me at this stage and I'm so afraid of losing her even though I know she doesn't feel the same way about me. I just feel like crap now :(

    I feel like I'm just not good enough

    for anything or anyone. I don't know how to stop feeling like this. I've always felt like if there are prettier girls out there, why would a guy want me? Or why I should even try.. I want to be happy. It's just hard when you've never had anyone tell you you're beautiful or worth...

    I've been feeling like this

    for a while now. it's nothing new. the only new thing about it is I'm talking about. I feel like I can't do anything right and if I do it's not good enough. I don't tell anyone in my family this because I don't want to be a burden to them. I've tried to do better and be better...

    I feel so worthless, like I have no value in

    life or to anyone. I just don't see myself being independent ever. I have never had a job. I want to work more than anything but I'm almost clueless about landing a job. I can't take a girl out when I want and even if by some miracle I had a job, I have zero confidence with...

    I'm Worthless

    I guess it goes with having depression but I just feel so worthless and unimportant in this world. It feels like if something happened to me I wouldn't be missed and no-one ever notices me. I don't have any friends and I'm always alone, sometimes it feels like I might...

    Mom and I got into an argument earlier,

    and now I feel worthless and ashamed of myself. This happened all due to a sudden mosquito fogging operation while we we're having dinner. She was furious at the man because we were not advised regarding the said action, but he replied: "We already told people earlier this...

    I feel like I'm nothing

    because I was incarcerated. I feel that I don't deserve the love because I caused so much pain and suffering. I wish that I could just disappear and everyone forgot about me so I don't cause them more pain

    At times I reflect on my life

    and get upset, which causes me to feel down about myself and have suicidal thoughts, but I know I could never be selfish and take my life as I would be missed too much. I hold my head up high in hopes that my life will turn around for the better.

    There was a time when you'd miss me

    even while we were talking. You'd think about me all day and be so happy about coming home to being able to talk to me. You'd just drop everything and procrastinate just for the extra time for us to talk that always ended up being hours. It made me feel special and desired. I...

    Well, maybe significantly undervalued is more

    accurate, but let's face it, it's more or less the same as feeling worthless. I struggle to explain it in words, it's just how I feel.

    Hello everyone, I'm a 16-year-old girl,

    and my parents always make me feel like I have no value. Even though I have good grades and my standardized test scores are decent, I never feel like I can measure up to the standard that my parents expect for me. On the October SAT, I got a 2150, and I thought that my score was...

    Interesting thought has come to my mind right

    now after reading your other posts... Is it not that we feel worthless coz we are hurt? Like we know we deserve better and feel frustrated others don't see it.... So, after all we do know our worth and what we feel is hurt. I say worthless is the person who cannot acknowledge...

    who can make me feel like this and it's only because I give him the power to. Sometimes I wish he would just punch me. Then I would know it was real. That I wasn't crazy or overreacting. I'm not looking for advice. I'm not seeking pity. I just needed to make my thoughts...

    Guys.... I need to smile

    so bad. But I can't anymore. I need some really close friends. But if you are a creep stay away nobody wants that. I need this PTSD and my depression to go away. I just want to cry and sleep and never wake up.
