• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

I'll never be anyone

I'm so stressed and feel like I can't handle it. If I can't handle this, I can't handle anything real. And I don't know what I can be.

You're already someone. You're you. You don't need to be anyone other than that.
Just be the person that you have been here.
Thank you. I just have a lot of plans and hopes for my life, and I feel like I have to achieve them to be someone. At the same time I worry I don't have the means or strength inside me to do that. Feels like I'll never even be able to handle having a job, for example.

You've shown a lot of strength and kept going through tough things already. I think you may have a lot more in you than you realize. Look at what you put up with in your living situation. If you can handle that, you can probably handle a lot of situations, including possible jobs. Nobody knows what the future looks like. Don't sell yourself short.

You're welcome!

Outcomes are never really in anyone's hands. We can only really strive in the right direction, and then try to accept the outcomes.
That is true. It's just really easy for me to want to give up.

Thank you. I have a major tendency to want to downplay my problems in a way and pretend like I'm not dealing with anything real or serious, which is what others did to me growing up. But that is a good point that I never thought of.
