i'm sorry, i really am. i didn't mean to make things worse
Take some deep breaths.
Can you tell us more about what's going on?
what happened emily?
take a breath and talk to us, okay?
what's going on?
i've messed things up in my selfishness.
What have you done?
Most things are reparable with time, so try not to panic. The more you tell us and explain, the more we can potentially help.
we're selfish by nature
what did you "mess up"?
maybe we can help you fix it
i was trying to be helpful but in my attempts to help i made someone feel a lot worse.
That's not selfish then. You did what you did with the person's best interests at heart. As people we all make mistakes, and things like this happen. Have you and the person spoken about it?
All you can do is your best at any one time, and that's what you did. You can't do more than that.
we haven't spoken about it yet, but i loved the feeling it gave me. i did it for me not her
You did what you did to be try and helpful to her, and that made you feel good? That sounds about right and fair and that applies to pretty much most people who do good and try to help people. That makes you human.
you keep saying that but i don't feel human.
when you tried to help her did you start by thinking:
"wow - helping her will make me feel good"
"wow - this person is hurting and needs help - maybe i can try"?
i'm guessing the latter
What do you feel?
like i'm nothing, not important and have no reason to be here. i actually got told that i am worthless and a waste of time today
Anyone who tries to help someone else is not worthless, OR a waste of time.
The reason you don't feel human is because of how ill you are right now. It doesn't mean you're not human though, it just means you can't see the good things about yourself and give yourself a break.
i've always felt like this and prbably always will and she was only telling me what i already know. though she did get very told off for saying it seeing as it was on a beatbullying website
Maybe the fact she got told off shows that actually she wasn't right to say it?
You don't always have to feel this way. It can be changed.
it can't but oh well
