I Hate Disappointing People

    I think I have a serious disappointment complex.

    It controls my life. I set ridiculously high standards for myself so that I won't disappoint other people. And it has ruined my life. It has led to me having no self esteem and serious anxiety issues because I'm scared of disappointing people. When I do, I feel like I need to...

    So Sorry

    I really hate to disappoint people, especially the ones whom I really care a lot for. Tonight I disappointed someone who I would never ever want to let down, I can't believe that I did what I did. Now here I am, awake again, trying to sleep with heavy heart. I wish there was a...

    I feel like I keep disappointing people.

    that is one of my biggest fears. I want to try to be able to make a decision that is good for myself but I feel like I hurt others in the process. I feel depressed right now and it is hard for me to get out of bed right now and feel like doing something.

    I hate being the cause of another person's pain,

    I hate disappointing people I care about.

    What hurt the most is that my action hurt the one I care about around me. I apologize but it still bother me. What should I do?

    When you lose sleep and over think stuff,

    the bad things tend to get to you more than usual. For example, My dad thinks that he knows me better than myself. Yet he doesn't know what kind of a hell I am going through ( not that I am saying that he should know. Never. He doesn't deserve a disappointment like this for...

    When you go to sleep expecting to be attacked

    in the morning by a super happy little sister but instead she walks in and stands at the door looking sad. You ask her what's wrong and she says that there are no presents and nothing is in our stockings. I didn't expect to get anything but I did expect for my little sister to...
