What about when you build your self esteem up to where you THINK you are a good person, and you put yourself "out there" with something that means more to you then you could have realized and you get kicked in the teeth?


You find out, your not so good after all.. that you dont "measure up" to the standards that are set..


That you work and work on something only to find out that no one told you its "not what they want anymore"


How do you keep going?

Hi Caly and welcome,


I honestly can't help you much with this topic as I've never been in love and had my heart broken by someone I really know.

Thank you both for your replies but it wasnt another person and Definately not a "love thing" that broke my heart..


I have worked very hard in the last year to build my self esteem and feel good about myself.. I finally felt confident enough about myself to do something I had almost never ever done.. and that is Ask for something.. There is something I really really want to do and so I worked as hard as I ever have on something to that the more I worked on it the more it meant to me.. I took the chance and submitted it to the "powers that be" as its

caly,

you most certainly do matter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! glad to see you here too. i sometimes wonder why some of us have to deal with the disease and the esteem problems. optimistically the answer is that we can deal with it, we are strong enough, we will get through it. not knowing the in and outs of your idea, maybe there is another way you can do it, another venue or something. don't give up sweetie.
