I Feel I Don't Matter

I feel I don't matter. The world won't change much without me in it. Although I helped a lot of people it was never a life or death matter  they probably could have gotten by without my help. I don't see how I matter.

Hi Aquarius, I am so sorry not to have written sooner, but I wasn't notified that you had replied to my last comment. <br />
It helps me to know that I am not the only one who feels so dejected and alone. So often I put on a happy mask with people, while inside feeling that I am dying of emptiness. It is good to be honest for once about how it really is.

I feel precisely the same way and I do the same thing.

Hi Aquarius, it is hard isn't it. People with a good support network behind them don't really know what it feels like to be in our situation. It is hard to keep going from day to day while feeling the way we do, and when others trivialise the situation it hurts a lot. I hope it helps you to know that you are not alone in your feelings.

It does

I feel the same way
