    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    never good enough
    An_254137 posted:
    often never feel good enough for anyone, i take rejection really hard, and i feel like noone wants me because of all the difficult things i've been through.
    An_254137 responded:
    also, i'm still really hung up on my ex, been 2 months, we barely talk yet i still justify my irrational thinking that we'll get back together soon. has anyone else seen a common pattern of irrationality in themselves?? Cuz mine is awful.

    it sounds like there is some depression there. some good counseling and a good anti-depressant might help you out. you need to talk out your issues and receive good guidance on how to overcome them and not let them control you. you should control them. good luck.

    It would be hard on most of us to have a partner break up on us. I agree with the person above who has suggested therapy and possibly an anti-depressant. Your thinking that you are never good enough for anyone sounds like depression. Get the help that you would benefit from.

    You are not irrational. Many of us who have gone through break-ups go through this. I realize knowing this doesn't make it any easier. As you probably already know, this process of getting over someone takes time. I have often felt some of these things you are discussing. I have thought, though, that the people I have broken up with--I didn't give them too much thought. And I often thought I wasn't good enough-- no one would ever want to be involved with me. It wasn't really true, though. There were times I ended things too. I see that others are giving good suggestions. It's good that you are discussing your feelings. Often I didn't, and that kept me from getting over the person as quickly as I could have. You don't feel strong right now, but discussing these feelings are good, I think. That shows strength to me. I wish you luck.

    These are clear symptoms of low self esteem. You don't feel worthy enough for anybody to want you. When I was younger I was terrified to ask a girl out because I was so afraid of being rejected and then I'd feel even worse about myself. I would try talking to a therapist or counselor that deals with self esteem issues. They can give you pointers on building your self esteem as well as helping you correct irrational thinking patterns. Good luck!!!
