Feeling stupid

Hi all,

I guess i'm using this forum to let out how i'm feeling as its hard for me to express how i'm feeling in person to people.

Recently I've been feeling really stupid about how I'm feeling. Me and my mother watched some old baby videos of myself that we found and since watching them i've been feeling so low and depressed. My childhood was wonderful (apart from my father leaving when I was 11). I know i'm probably feeling like this because I wish to go back to then. Responsibility to be taken away from me and have that feeling back I had when I was a child.

My mind keeps going back to how my mum looked after me and all that she has done for me through everything and her love really shows in those videos and it hurts me. It hurts me that my mother was treated so poorly by my father and I wish that I could be happier for my mum. I'm 27, I still live at home and work full time at the hospital which is pretty stressful at the moment due to COVID. I help my mum out as much as I can (I pay her rent and help with food bills etc) but I feel like i'm going nowhere in life. My younger sister has settled down with 2 children and is getting married. I was in a relationship for 10 years and engaged and that relationship broke down. I want to be able to get married and have kids and have my own place but that seems so unobtainable. I feel like i'm stuck in limbo and I want to make everyone proud of me and I feel like i'm not. I've been crying constantly the past week and I can't seem to stop. I feel so stupid cause I feel like these are such small issues and there is so much going on around me thats worse than what i'm feeling.

I'm not sure how to handle my feelings and can't seem to stop feeling this low.

Hello, i'm experiencing something a little similar. But first and foremost do not worry about if the issue is small or big and who may have it worse than you. Because at the end of the day an issue is an issue and your feelings are very important as well. A lot of people have a point in their life in which they tend to feel like they are stuck. But maybe its a way of telling us that we need to create a new plan, do new activities, do things that make us deeply connected back with ourselves and then go back and take charge in life. I'm sorry that your relationship didn't work out but in time im sure you will find an amazing person to complete you. Maybe take a step back and make a list of things you want to do or change in your life and work from there. 💕
