Found this on Facebook and wanted to share there, but decided that it was something more for my limited Tumblr audience. I know this to be a fact because I have been there myself so many times. For the most part, I am “better” now. I am happy with my life, grateful for what I have and the people who are in it with me. But I remember what it felt like to belive that I was absolutely worthless, beyond saving, or just a horrible person in general. I would never wish that on anyone else. (no matter what kind of d-bagging asshat they might be.)
I also saw this on Facebook, posted by someone I’m not really close to. How do you respond to that? You can’t really ‘like’ that post, even if you agree and completely understand. That’s just not something you ‘like’ and in such a public, casual way. Not when you know you’ve spent the better part of your life being that person and dealing with that feeling of worthlessness. Giving everything you had to whoever would take it, making them happy so they would validate you even for a little while..
