I Hate Self-pity

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 65 People

    I'm not trying to talk down on those

    who do this I just don't understand it. I hate when people sit there and post on social media how their going to harm themselves or take away their own life's. I feel like people who do that are looking for attention I don't get it

    to hear it. Going on 4years since I left is long enough for me to grieve, recoup myself... My frailties, my strengths and take a big breath and move on. It is one step then the next then the next. I trust people again. That took a while but I did it by choices that are made each...

    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.

    I hate in others and in myself,

    especially myself. I hate that I'm jealous of the kid who filled my spot in my absence in the team. Hate the look that the coach gave him that I worked so hard to get before and that they need me even less now. That he won his first match when I lost three in a row on my first...

    Be strong people of the world.

    For you are made conquerers. From the ashes of defeat burn the flame of victory. I believe in your ability to believe in yourself. I will not tolerate naysayers. Be strong.

    I don't know why people think pity is welcome. It's demeaning. If you want to help, then help, but don't ever pity.
