    Why Do I Feel Useless and Second Best to My Siblings

    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.

    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 :/

    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...
