    Hey

    I have to struggle with depressions for a while now. But lately my main Problem is that I feel like I´m not worth anything. Like my existence is a punishment for the people in my life and that I don´t deserve anything. I try to think different bc somewhere inside of me, I know this is bullshit. But it´s not that easy.

    Does someone here has or had the same problem?
    If yes, do you know what helps?

    And I really hate myself. I don´t want to. But I do. I suck.

    Yes. I know what you're feeling, so do many of the people on this forum. It sucks. The depression and lack of self-esteem seems to go hand in hand with why this forum even exists. So many people on this site have spent a lot of their most important time on this earth feeling rejected or unaccepted. It does a lot of damage to our self worth and self-esteem. It sucks.
    I do my best to make myself feel better. I try to make friends on social media. ( It's a distraction,but not a solution) I try to be social as much as I can, but when you feeling like your existence Is a punishment for the people you befriend.. it's a double edged sword. I've been stuck for a long time. On my my bad days, when I need people the most, I white knuckle it. I try to avoid everyone until I feel like I can carry on a conversation without bringing anyone else down with me. It's really hard. It fucking sucks.
    I hope I'm not making it worse. I fear that a lot. I just don't want you to feel alone cuz you absolutely are not. I use music to distract me too, and Humor. Sometimes I'll just start looking up random stuff online until something catches my interest or is such a horrible thing ( like true crime stuff) that it convinces me that I'm not as bad as I think I am. I don't feel so bad about myself anymore.
    I really hope you can get out of your funk. I know it's not easy. Just keep looking for a distraction that helps. Keep looking around this site. You'll find out that you are not alone at all.
    Peace and Hugs to you my friend
