Default Feeling hopeless tonight

Don't know what to do. Don't know if things will get better. I feel unmotivated most days. I feel stupid for making another post because nothing has really changed for me. I'm not doing so well tonight. And then there's all these insecurities I have. They're all driving me crazy.

I wish I could offer you some comfort. It's a terrible feeling to feel hopeless. I have been there myself --- for months I was suicidal once and felt completely hopeless. But with therapy, time, lots of forum support and personal effort, I came out of it and things DID get much better. Things turned around. I hope the same for you. ((((((((Hugs)))))))))

Iím sorry youíre feeling this way
You said you have insecurities. Do you know exactly what they are? Maybe you could work on them if you know what they are, and gradually heal the worst of them.

Well for one I don't even have a job yet so my friends and family are judging me cause of that. They don't know that I'm just having a hard time. It's hard to get motivated or even see a point in living when your dealing with all the feelings I'm dealing with. Little do they know though I'm trying to get help. I'm going to therapy and seeing if someone can help me do what I want to do. People just don't understand me. I want to go to college and do something but I had a hard time in school and I'm afraid I won't get the help I need. People probably see me as a kid still and treat me like that. Well I'm not. I'm just going through a hard time in life and I'm trying to get out of this rut I feel stuck in. Go ahead and judge me. I bet some of the people reading this are. But they don't undersatnd what I'm feeling. I'm trying. I do want to try. These things I'm feeling are almost too much to bear. Sometimes people feel like they just can't move on with life. I wish people could understand that but I think empathy, sympathy and understanding are all dead. All people do is criticize you. Pisses me off. Makes me feel like ****. My feelings are stupid.

All anyone does is just tell you to man up. Well thanks that definitely makes me feel better about myself. As if I didn't already feel bad enough.

Your feelings are not stupid. I'm sorry you feel like no one understands. I definitely know how that feels. Keep going and doing the best you can. Other peoples opinions really don't matter. You deserve to be happy!

It's a great thing you're trying to get help. Your feelings are totally valid, please don't let other people convince you of the opposite.
