Do you ever feel like you never do enough no matter what?! Like even if you tried your best it still isn't good enough?!

You feel like you should've done more?! That your obligated to do things for people so you do them anyway?! That you don't feel good enough for anyone or that you don't deserve anything good that happens to you?! I feel like this all the time just curious to see if someone else does too?!

well i feel like this sometimes. but you see, the things we do are for our own benefit and no matter how badly we suck at them, we have to push the limits, because its our business. if you can look with a wider view, you can realize that its one of those bad times. everyone has them. and when we struggle through the night, we finally see a brighter day sooner rather than later. the key is to keep yourself strong through the bad times. i am also going through them(especially in my studies), but i have decided to keep my head up and give my all to them to get good grades and i believe in myself, so i know i'll succeed.
best of luck to you too for your problems and i hope you get through them sooner.

The thing is I know I'm not as bad as I think I am or I know it's not my fault and I work my butt off for everything I get and I'm always pushing myself always I just leave myself wishing I had done more every time it's like I don't allow myself time to enjoy anything that I earn from my own merit because idk why but I guess I think I don't deserve it

i think you are a victim of procrastination. happens with me all the time. but i try to avoid it many times. its like you do work but you don't do what you're supposed to do and leave the important things for later on in time.
Report as
Yea I do that sometimes too but I don't think that's all of it I mean I try my best at everything I do irk maybe your right

Some times I feel like that too. When I feel like that I just go outside on a bike ride, play with my dog, or do something to keep my mind off of it. You'll feel better =)

All. The. Time. The problem is judging yourself by other people's view of you rather than your own, but this is after all how we're taught to interact in the world.

No, perhaps you're trying to impress the wrong person. if someone makes you feel like your best isn't good enough it's time to evaluate that person. Not you

The thing is im not trying to impress anybody I just get so down on myself. About everything I do that, i feel like I'm not good enough or that I haven't done enough. I just feel like what I'm doing doesn't match up does that make sense?!
Report as
Yes this makes sense. Please listen to me. I used to feel like this too. But, you gotta know in your heart you're doing your best! That's all you can do. Is it maybe your missing something? Like a good girl in your life that tells you you're doing an awesome job and loves you? Listen please, do not beat yourself up. You even said you give it your all. At the end of the day you gotta know you did. Right? Don't beat yourself up:)
Report as
Yes I know I do my best I work my butt off and push myself to my limits I try my best and I know I do I just idk I feel like I should've done more all the time and I just beat myself up and I know that I do my best and I know I shouldn't beat myself up I guess it's easier said than done
Report as
Thanks for the advice and the kind words helped a lot your really sweet thanks :)
Report as
You're very welcome and thanks.
Try this, look in the mirror and tell yourself how good you are. Believe it too!! Look, I'm sure you have more going in life and more to show for than a lot of people ya know. That's what made me stop beating myself up. And yes, it's easier said than done:(. Try the mirror thing and looking at what you do have;)
Report as
I know it's silly I get even more mad at myself for getting upset over what I didn't do or what I don't have but I understand and I'll try the mirror thing and see where it goes thanks a lot it really did help to talk with yoy

Someone should make a psychiatrichelp.com, cause ask.com is really getting overloaded with these things.

Humans can never be contented with anything. They will try to change something always. ALWAYS. Even on the little things, the big things we always want more. The best way to enjoy this is to enjoy the ride. You don't aim for the destination. You enjoy the Journey itself. Make the rules as you go. BEcause life is never the same. Things always change and the moment you realize it that's when you adapt and know who you really are.

Yea I understand what your saying and I enjoy things it's just when I look back and reflect is when I get down or if something happens I always blame myself idk I'm weird I guess
Report as
I agree totally about enjoying the things we go through life and enjoying it instead of worrying about getting where we want to get
Report as
Things happen for a reason. We are always involved in things. That's why we always feel some kind of guilt on the things we didn't do "the best" with. The best approach to this is to analyze what went wrong and try to take things from there and learn and try and do better next time.
Report as
The thing is I know I did my best and I know I probably did better than others I work my butt off and push myself all the time and I know I shouldn't be down on myself cuz I did do my best I just leave myself wishing I had done more
