Default Ever feel like u'd be better off

Well you know... I just feel like I hurt people or I cause people too much pain existing as I do now. That's all. Anyone feel like it would be better if u didn't exist?

I would say that I do. I feel like I don't have much going for me with people and things. My family has been disolved, I'm single, and the prospects of having someone is nil. Also I'm not very successful with friends.

I have everything else going for me very well. But so what? If you're not successful with people, then it's time to let go.

Sometimes it feels like that to me, but it is a passing thought. Kinda like a fart. At least for me. Just means for me, I can joke about it. But I have had the feeling in the past.

Nobody else uses the avatar you do. Every time I see it, it takes me back to some really vague early childhood memory of being at the movies and seeing Lady and the Tramp and just feeling really really warm and happy. Maybe you need to watch the movie, it's a wonderful life. I know it's out of season, but for me, things really would not be the same without YOU. I hope that's not too heavy of a burden, but your chance picking of an avatar is like a butterfly wing.

Yes. I do feel like a burden. Sometimes the pain of the feeling is greater, sometimes less.

I believe the people in your life would disagree. Yes, the things we do sometimes hurt the people we love the most but that is why it hurts them the most because they care about you.

Optimize-you made me laugh out loud with your fart comment, thanks for that.

Hugs to you all and I'm sorry you are in the same place. I wonder what we can do to ta ourselves into a better place. I was thinking of maybe making a list of things that I do that are valued and important to other people in my life. Kind of like what they would be missing if I weren't around. But then I thought how odd that sounds! I should make a list of the things I would be missing if I weren't around, right? It just sounds so weird to think of it that way.

My avitar is of the dog from Lady and the Tramp, bc my dog looks like the grey boy dog. Every little kid we see says so, but most parents don't remember the movie. I did see it on tv a few weeks ago, but I was just flipping through channels. I tried to see if Hulu or Netflix had it, but they don't. That would make me smile, watching that. Idk. Maybe I'll put on a cartoon tonight just for fun. Argh.

Work was really crappy and frustrating today. I have an interview for a huge school down south, division 1, in the middle of this week....they want me! But idk if I want to go that far. So I guess that gives me something to look forward to I guess.
