It's True - I'm Not Good Enough

All my life I have felt like I am not good enough. Whenever I think about myself, all I see is a worthless failure that isn’t really good for anything and is constantly falling short of everyone else.

I don’t have lots of money, I do poorly in school, I haven’t travelled the world, I look hideous, what is possibly good about me other than the fact that I can memorize things? My best friend says that I am loving and kind and all that but those such qualities don’t make me feel better about myself and they certainly don’t make me feel like I am valuable at all. Being empathetic and thoughtful doesn’t make it easier to be me.

Feeling equal to the wonderful people around me would be a spectacular feeling that I have never felt in all my life, but, truthfully, I don’t see this happening.

I never feel like I am good enough.

If you have so many wonderful people in your life then they all must think you're wonderful too. I know it's hard to listen to somebody say don't sell yourself short. But i was in your shoes not too long ago. It's tough to wake up in the morning a feel like crap. My advice is use your good memory to your advantage. Not alot of people can say they have that, but you do. So exploit it at your job and in your everyday life. Find new hobbies that connect you with others. In this day and age you're never alone you just need to be willing to look.

get out in the world and meet better people and stay focused on the things that are most important not what other's say.
