    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...

    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'm Afraid Of Myself

    It feels as if I don't serve a purpose here on earth. I just feel completly worthless. It's like I'm always standing on the sideline of life, trying to participate but I always end up failing. It freaks me out. I don't want to feel like this and I really don't get WHY I'm...

    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...

    Why Do We Feel Worthless?

    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...
