I Feel Worthless

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,298 People

    I try not to hate myself,

    but I keep finding new reasons every day. I can't be the person I need to be, I can't be strong all the time. It sucks because I know people are counting on me to keep it together and I know I can't hold on because my life is already being held together by tape. I'm trying, I...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I not only feel worthless,

    I am worthless. I have no skills or talents, I can't stand being around anybody, and nobody can stand being around me for more than 5 minutes. My mother gave me away when I was young, and I hate her for not just aborting me, or leaving me in a dumpster, or tossing me out into...

    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 am a failure to everyone

    that knows me, My family, my children, my friends. Every day I just want to die, I don't deserve to live anymore. I hope when I fall asleep, I don't ever wake up again. I just want to be done with my pathetic life.

    A Mothers Love

    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...

    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...
