I feel completely powerless and helpless



Oct 29, 2020
I feel completely powerless and helpless. Im useless and a parasite. A waste of human life. Why should I live? To make others happy while I feel like shit everyday? One day they will be gone and I will be alone in my misery. Why not end it now and spare myself unavoidable pain?

Know and believe that there will be better days for you. Take it one day at a time. Listen to good, encouraging, and uplifting songs on youtube. Do what you love doing or are good at. You were created to be happy.

You're not useless. You're worth being here just because you're you.

Im useless. Without my father supporting me Im dead. The only reason I'm in the house yet is because of college at which I fail and loathe. I don't want to try anymore but I don't have a choice either.

" I feel completely powerless and helpless "

yep can relate. I have a shitty temp job. lost all my work as wedding photographer. I feel trapped. catch 22. no way out. covid scares me to even date or meet. so basically I goto work whcih feels like jail and go back home. like a zombie. I cannot do anything till it subsides.

im not relying on the "it will get better" or "its ok to feel this way, its normal" copy paste sentences. they dont help for the NOW. not to insult or offend but everyone says the same but its doesnt fix my stress right now. even youtube help videos all are copy paste of one another. if one has a panic attack, they dont need to know the history or why they are having one, they need immediete intervention on how to stop it right then. when things subside then its time to research and see how to cope with it in the future. not when youre feeling the end.

the only thing I can say is try to make a plan on where you want to be in your life ina few months from now. you too are in a catch 22. without school you cant get a degree and better yourself for a good paying job. so lean on that for now that you have a lot of free time to invest in that and that is your future. you have an opportunity to get out. use it. you live with dad. better than living on your own and having to work and goto school together. put your head in the books and put your effort into that. look at the books as if youre holding gold in your hand
