    Why Do I Feel Useless and Second Best to My Siblings

    Most days I feel useless to most people in the world. Nothing I do seems to be good enough. To make it worse I suffer from depression and anxiety, so these conditions kinda distorts my reality a bit. Even on days when I do show glimpses of been usefull, the next day I'm back to...

    Nothing

    I am completely useless. All I do is take take take. I'm no good to anyone and just a dead weight bringing everyone down.

    Stress.

    I hate feeling worthless and unimportant and... well.... useless. Especially when everyone tells me that I am all of those things. I try my best to be my best, but it's never good enough. I'm not very pretty, I'm not very smart, I'm not very strong, I'm not very brave, I'm not...

    Useless And Bored

    I'm a 35 yr old male who feels like I have zero going on in my life. I have a boring desk job, live in an apartment, and have some friends and family, but I still feel real empty as of late. I don't really have any goals or hobbies besides playing video games and watching TV. I...

    This is me every second of every day I can do

    loads of good for everyone else but I'm toxic to myself... Everything I've ever wanted to do has either blown up in my face or just been an impossibility from the start. I think its time to give up and rot away like trash is supposed to :/

    I feel incompetent and inadequate.

    It angers me that a few people I know are getting internships as a bridge to their careers and moving away and doing something worthwhile with their lives. A couple teach esl overseas, one or two are leading major volunteer projects. Me? Just the loser with the worthless...

    I really really hate the feeling of loneliness that pops up out of nowhere. I'm not usually dependent on others' presence but sometimes I just feel so frickin lonely.

    Females are so lucky they do not have to deal with morning wood. It can just be a little frustrating on your own, but very awkward when around family or friends.
