Upcoming family vacation, feeling undeserving

I’m feeling entirely undeserving of an upcoming family vacation.

Due to my social anxiety and depression I’m living with my parents. Also unemployed. So while a vacation is an exciting thing I’m more anxious about it. Why do I get a vacation when I contribute nothing to the household? Or society for that matter.

I’ve been at an all time low depression wise. I even feel undeserving of posting any pictures I’ll take to social media. I feel like those that know me irl will judge me for being handed something. I really hate myself right now.

Sounds like your really depressed. I hope it lifts for your trip. Maybe try some mindfulness to help you get thru it and feel better :)

I live with my parents and we are going on vacation together next week. It’s a family vacation and I am part of the family. You shouldn’t feel bad about being included in family activities when you are staying with family. You are an important person to your family and I’m sure they are glad to have you along. xo, j

Thank you. I have to keep that in my head. Also, hope you have fun on your family vacation!
