  • I feel useless

    I only have one redeeming factor that shines through on a day to day basis. I can't find comfort in my one redeeming factor because I have learned to resent it for what it is. Also, I can't find comfort in my non-day to day basis because when I don't demonstrate them there is a public backlash. I can't talk to my parents about it because they are trying to do what they can they just don't have enough time to do so. I would feel guilty anyway because it is my fault for thinking this way. I have suicidal thoughts, but I don't go through with them for I would feel guilty for trying to do so because nobody around me deserves the emotional repercussions of my death. I just don't know my use.
