Feeling annoying on TeenHelp - June 14th 2018, 02:14 AM

[SIZE="a"]I hate myself so much. Anytime I am with people I automatically feel like they're better than me and that they all secretly hate me, everywhere I go. No matter where I am I genuinely believe that everyone who comes into contact with me dislikes me. In any social situation, the things I say are stupid and not normal things that normal people say. I believe that I am always the odd one out, the one who obviously doesn't belong. I'll try to socialize and join in, especially at work, but it feels like everyone tries to ignore me and I'm butting in on their conversations. Because conversations are reserved for normal people.

I find that I feel the same way on TeenHelp. I believe that everything I say here is stupid. It feels like the threads I make aren't taken seriously, and definitely not taken as seriously as other peoples threads. It feels like my posts on other peoples threads are often disregarded and never helpful.

My problems feel huge to me, and they are a burden on my mind at all times. Maybe I am not good at explaining my problems to other people, or maybe they just don't seem like big problems to anyone else here. But they feel too big for me to handle on my own. Reaching out for help on here doesn't help with my problems though, because I feel like I'm just not important here.

This probably seems really whiny. I didn't write this to get extra attention or anything, hence the anonymity. I do not even think its a TeenHelp problem. Maybe its just a problem with me. I think I might hate myself so much that it comes across over the internet as well, which used to be a place where I could feel better about myself because I could present myself as anyone I wanted to be. Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me?[/size]

Your post isn't whiny.

I think that often times when we feel depressed, have low self-esteem, or otherwise feel unworthy, we tend to think that everyone else feels the same way about us too. A bit like, if we can't like ourselves, how is anyone going to like us? But often, the problem may lie with our faulty thinking rather than within us (it's not a problem with you!) We might dislike ourselves, but that doesn't meant that everyone else does. We might think that we are unimportant, but that doesn't mean that others think this. We might think we aren't 'normal', but that doesn't mean that others see us in this way. Our thoughts aren't reality.

I'm sorry to hear that the way you feel affects you socially and on TeenHelp too. It makes sense that you feel things to be overwhelming and wonder whether you are explaining yourself well, wonder if others don't take your posts seriously etc. Sometimes it may be a case of others not knowing how to reply or what to say since everyone's situations are different. That doesn't mean that others don't take your problems seriously.

It's interesting that you say the internet was a place where you could feel better about yourself because you could present yourself as anyone you wanted to be. I think that's definitely part of why the internet can be so appealing at times. That said, there's nothing wrong with being more 'you' rather than presenting yourself as anyone you want to be.

It's not just you though. I've felt like the odd one out for most of my life, never fitting in, always guessing that others are thinking negatively of me etc.

Hello,

I am so sorry that you are having a hard time with this right now and I hope that you will be okay soon. When you and everyone else post on teenhelp, we will never think that what you and everyone else is saying is stupid and we always want to help everyone. No matter what you and everyone else are going through. We want to try and give you all the best advice that we can so that you and everyone else will be okay soon. So please do not stop posting on this. Also if you have joined the website you can make friends to talk with about what you are going through and blog about it also. We also have the helplink and the live help that you can always us.
Can you try talking to someone about what you are going through and letting them know that you are having a hard time with this? Are you able to talk with you're family or friends or friends parents or if you can talk to someone at school like a school counselor or a teacher that you are close with. And let them know that you are having a hard time with this right now and see what they can do for you. Also try going for a walk or putting on music or reading or funny TV shows to make you laugh some to help you. I hope that you will be okay soon.
