    I really do feel like a failure right now.

    I can't seem to help anyone here. Things I do to make people happy simply don't work. I tried to set up a secret santa type thing over at After Dark and no-one seems to want to take it seriously - or at least, no-one's applied and the deadline's tomorrow night. I put alot of effort into organising it, and I've even bought some small things that I can send everyone who signs up, just to make sure everyone gets something.

    To make it worse it's coming up to my Race For Life date, and I only have one person sponsering me. It feels like no-one believes I can do it.

    I got most of this out at my counselling session last night, but as it's three weeks till my next session, I doubt I'll be able to keep these feelings away for long. I maybe I shouldn't bother trying anymore :sad:

    im sorry people arent clever enough to know how good and useful you are.

    You do help people here. Youve been a great help to me, and the hugs make me feel so much better, it doesnt seem like much but it REALLY is...especially to me :)

    Im sorry no1 has signed up, thats awful especially as youve been out to buy things for people. you really are a kind person....just think of it as now you have some presents! ;)!

    That sucks, but one sponsership is better than none, right? if i could afford it, i'd sponser you :) good luck in your race!!

    i believe in you.
    thank you for being so kind and loving :arms:

    You are not a failure by any means RainbowChaser. The fact that you have taken the time to give of yourself so others can benefit shows your kind heart. I have not been to AD for awhile so did not know of your Santa exchange there. It does sound like a fun thing to do. Don't give up on yourself because others have not taken the opportunities you have given them. It is our/their loss, not yours. Sometimes we take for granted those that do so many things for others. I appreciate you and all you do. The words of encouragement, love, care, concern, compassion, etc. You should be proud of who you are. Please take care and don't be so hard on yourself. :hug:

    Do you have any idea how absolutely wrong you are about this?! :eek: you have any idea how absolutely great you always make me feel, when you take the time to reply to one of my posts, if even with something as simple as hug, or a heartfelt wish that things are going okay for me. Or when you take the time to actually greet, and talk with me in chat...

    You are definitely not a failure touch and heal people's're a beautiful person both inside and out, and you're a wonderful friend to everyone here :hug:

    And I didn't know anything about this, or I would have also very happily sponsored you ^^

    So what do I need to do to make a sponsorship donation? :hug:

    O.O Well, I wasn't expecting all this...

    If anyone really seriously wants to sponsor me, PM me and I'll give you at least three different ways you can do it :laugh:

    PS: Not advertising, honest!
