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.

  • They may be successful, but you have a child that loves you and needs you. It may not be "glamorous" but you are the one at the end of the day gets something in return from you "job". what do they get a paycheck? Is that money going to miss them and reminisce about them when they are gone? Nope people are going to be fighting over who gets what..... Hold you head up high and be proud you have the hardest, most rewarding job in the world!!! You're someones Mom!

  • go to GOD. i will pray for you .
