(Hi Froggy...hope you are doing better). Last week I was really bummed out. My sister & I have never been clos,e but when I wasn't invited to my family's 4th of July, how does one not feel bad about oneself? It's just me, my sister & her family & my Dad left. I believe that your self-esteem is based on family & what you grow up with. At 37, this was a big blow to me. Not only did that happen, but one of my friends who I was supposed to get out of town with flaked on me.
I have been in therapy on & off for years& I am basically done with it with the last one telling me I should "sit with my feelings. If I did that, I'd be suicidal right now. I am sick of working on myself & tired of all the self-help books including Dr. Phil.
I also have been feeling pretty stupid lately. I just have realized I am not that smart. I mean do you ever go through that? I feel like I just can't comprehend things.
I have been stressed out with the buying & sellling of my home. I don't feel at times I have a great support system & have a hard time trusting people.
Anyway, I just needed to vent. My self-esteem has taken a beating. There are times when I realize I will be single for a long time. Who wants to be with someone who doesn't feel good about themself?
