Shame and anxiety
The first thing I feel when I wake up in the morning is anxiety and a feeling of absolute failure. I am ashamed of myself. My friends are always asking me to go out, but they're all successful-- yoga teachers, photographers, musicians, and so on.... I'm a nobody who never finished her degree, I'm in debt and unemployed, and have a kid with ADHD who I homeschool and never get a break from. I have no skills. I have no direction. I have no money. I don't know success. All I know is repeated failure, stress, anxiety, and shame.
