Unhappy I'm a disappointment

I've disappointed all of those who believed in me.. my parents, my friends.. everyone. I'm sorry, I tried my best. It wasn't enough. I'm sorry..
Maybe I should just disappear and never come back..

Why do you think you're a disappointment?

I can't do anything right.. I can't study properly.. I can't even do simple things such as going out and buying something by myself, or even boiling milk. I'm a failure, that's what I am..

It sounds like you are really struggling, and I'm sorry to hear that.

Not being able to do certain things doesn't mean you're a disappointment. The people in your life will love you regardless. If another member made a post about not being able to go out and buy something, or having trouble boiling milk, would you call them a disappointment? Likely not, because you are a very supportive and understanding person towards everyone...except yourself. It is easier to be harder on ourselves than others, but that's not fair to us.

Are you receiving any help for your mental health struggles?

I feel the exact same way. Trying to hold everything together, but struggling inside so much everyday. There is no telling us, we are important and people love us. We don't feel it!!

You are not a disappointment. You are not a failure. One area you're definitely capable in is comforting and supporting others. That's an amazing thing. You're capable of many things, even though you may not be able to see that right now. Why don't you try and show some of the kindness you show others to yourself? Hope you feel better soon.

You're not a disappointment. You're going through a rough time and everything seems like a failure at times. But what you do is not who you are. You support a lot people here. Time to support yourself.

I agree with this completely. I would add one more thing too .. you have a quiet courage about you. That is something that is really awesome to have.

I don't know how many of my personal threads you have read, but if you have read many at all, I am sure you know I go through similar things as well.

Perhaps if you lean on your courage a lil to find the inner strength you need in order to get yourself out into the fresh air or do something you enjoy. That will allow you to "take a step back and relax" a bit. Then you can reanalyze. You say you disappointed everyone - are you truly doing that, or did you disappoint yourself down in some way? Is it something totally different not related to any of what you listed off but rather more so related to something in the past?

Finding the answers to those questions will allow you to understand you really are not a failure. These are not just words being told to comfort you. They are truth. When you are able to see the true root cause, it isn't as easy to cast an unfair burden on yourself. Then you can focus on healing again, rather than on the negativity you are perceiving.

You are a wonderful person. Kind and warm-hearted. Don't lose sight of that - we haven't.
*hugs*

You are not a disappointment.

Kt doesn't matter that studying didn't go as planned, who cares if the milk boiling was a balls up, and the world didn't end be because your trip to the store went south.

YOU TRIED.,

And as I understand it, the only failure is in not trying at all.

Keep trying, we become better at things, at life, with practice.
