I think self-pity is a common part of depression and feelings of low self-worth. I don't know what the point of self-pity is, maybe a sort of comfort. I've often felt sorry for myself, but don't know if it ever helped me in any way.

I don't feel sorry for myself and never have. It never seems to occur to me to feel sorry for myself.

I never feel sorry for myself. It sucks to have mental illness but that is just life.

I do sometimes and that’s when it all becomes even more difficult.

I'm not sure it's "feeling sorry" for myself, but I definitely get anxious thinking about my life. I need to practice mindfulness more. For me, not ruminating about the past is a major problem and mindfulness is the answer. Plus, avoiding wankers (to use a British term).
