    When I was a teenager I used to compare myself

    to others. I never thought I was good enough or had the talent and experience. I no longer do it anymore. If a person can't accept me that's their loss.

    I hate disappointing myself,

    and I always push myself to be the best, no one asks me to do it, but I feel that I will never love myself, unless I can finally get to the point of mastery. My only motto in life is to win, nothing else. I hate not feeling capable to do that.

    mom is dead, my grandma is dead and through all of this my husband has been practically nonexistent in my life. When I cry, I cry alone. it's like I'm not even good enough for him to treat me like a human being that needs love and understanding in a time like this. What am I...

    I loved you. But I am not good enough.

    I am not what you need or want. I wanted to be the one you thought of driving to and from work. I wanted to be the one you wished was beside you watching tv, coming home to, waking up beside, dreaming about. I just wanted to be the one you wanted. I hope those pictures of...

    I think I am paralysed by this fear

    even though rationally intellectually it's stupid and a pathetic excuse which makes it worse. knowing you have a problem isn't the first step to solving it - just makes you feel twice as bad
