    I didn't know where to put this. This is very hard for me to say, I only gathered the courage to tell someone about this last night and I don't know if I can go into all the details in this post, but I'll try. I don't even know where to start.

    I've been struggling a lot recently, I feel as if I'm changing, for the worst, and I seem to lack the control to stop it from happening. I was talking to someone last week, and I said, "people are like snakes, they slither their way into your life, inject their venom and the damage caused depends on the snake and the toxicity of the venom". I have been hurt and let down so many times in really bad ways and now I think that everyone who enters my life is going to hurt me and this is effecting me in a large way.

    I don't think anyone truly likes me, I really cannot understand why anyone would care for me. I don't like talking about myself because in all honestly, who gives a crap? Seriously. People at work are talking and I think of something that could contribute to the discussion but hold back because why would anyone want to listen to what I have to say? Not only at work, but online, too. Even when it comes to discussions in the staff room on SF, why would anyone want to listen to me?

    Even typing this now, I am wasting all your time. No doubt when I hit 'submit', I will regret posting this.

    People who ask me about my life, they don't truly want to know. They are just making conversation. They don't give a crap. No one gives a crap. My self worth is at absolute zero and I can't see it lifting. I just don't know what to do anymore.

    I fully believe that you've got the makings of someone who can really do well. And that you want to get better. Being honest is a start. If you are going to get better than you might encounter some really shit times along the way. Like you're feeling now. No big deal, doesn't make you a bad person. I don't really know what has happened to you, but I really hope you can open up to someone and start the healing process. Writing things down might help .. other than that let me know if you need anything.

    As much as I appreciate your kind words I can't help but think you're all just saying it. I feel very alone, I can't see a way out of this.

    To me it sounds like you need a close friend to converse with. Myself, I don't particularly like small talk with people I don't know well (unless I am drunk). I feel forced, I feel like they feel they are forced, that they don't care, and to be honest sometimes I don't care either.

    But ... once you have rapport with somebody, it is different. You look forward to telling them things, and genuinely look forward to hearing what they have to say.

    I do agree with your assumption in general, but I feel it only applies to superficial relationships. Once you spend time with a person, and feel comfortable around them things change.

    And everyone has self worth. The fact you were able to come up with this observation and express it is what gives you worth. It is your opinion on how the world works, and sharing such ideas with others is what makes the world go around. Hope you feel better.

    Well I'm not going to repeat what others have said (though it's true for me too!) because I think you're right in one respect... only YOU have the power to make yourself believe that you're worth something, even if you only start in small ways every day. Eg's might be "I am worth making myself look nice today." "I am worth buying that outfit for." "I am worth being heard."

    If you can let people's good feelings for you and about you in a little then maybe over time you can believe them... and this is rich coming from me because I have to physically hurt myself if people say nice things to me! So if you're ever pissed off at me, just tell me how great I am!! :tongue:
