I Feel Worthless

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,332 People

    People say that if somebody makes you feel bad

    about yourself, dont hang around them. But what do you do when they dont do it on purpose? When its just a consequence of you always being wrong and them always being right and they simply ARE better than you? What then?

    I feel worthless. Its one of the day

    that I doubt myself. Its one of the day that I feel like, I have no use. Like this afternoon, my lecturer was giving us our test back from last week. My friend (whom I knew since 7 yrs ago) and I didnt really study, because we did the homework and often, the exercise. I think I...

    Feeling Sad, Lonely, and Angry

    Today at work I felt so lonely. For some reason, I feel I never belong or have a terrible fear that others don't or won't like me.  I constantly self criticize and assume others are thinking bad thoughts about me. All day long I observe other's reactions towards me and my...

    This Holiday break has been difficult-basically

    what it comes down to though is feeling worthless. My grades suffered this semester and this isn't the first time this has happened. Too much stress with my marriage and families. Money is an issue. I just feel so down and like a burden to the world. The only thing I can do...

    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'm so empty, like completely drained out of my

    DISSIPATE

    I don't find this linked to my past depression, but it's of course painful nonetheless. I go through bouts of severe loneliness and can't control them. I feel worthless, a burden to others. Sometimes I can't even smile. And then at times I'm the happiest person in the world. I...

    I am disposable. Easily replaced.

    Too much effort. I wish I knew why I didn't deserve the respect and love I had given. I wish I knew what I had done wrong. If it was really just him, he'd be miserable and he'd miss me, but he doesn't. I was a burden, a reminder of his failures and lies. He made me feel so...

    I've felt worthless my whole life.

    I feel like people forget I ever existed. I feel like no one cares about me. I wonder if anyone would notice if I suddenly disappear.

    Yep, I'm Wortthless For Sure

    It’s one thing to feel worthless. It’s another thing when you look back on your life and all of your experiences, and realize that your feelings of worthlessness are not just feelings, but rather a very true depiction of what you truly are. I can confirm without any doubt...

    I've never really felt like I have anything to

    offer anyone. theres nothing really special about me or anything and I just cant imagine anything but a positive outcome if I wasnt here. I just dont see why it would be so bad to just...go. I feel like a waste of space and I have no idea what to do with my life so why stay?

    There is only one person in the world

    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...

    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...

    Why Do We Feel Worthless?

    I've been trying to figure out why people who are somewhat different and find it difficult to make friends should feel worthless and somehow inferior to others. Why our personal well-being and self-esteem should be determined by how many friends we've got and how much we are...
