I Feel Inadequate

I…don't know what I'm doing. I feel stupid and inadequate because everyone else seems to know who they are and what they want and I'm just not confident enough in myself to do the same.

I feel like a failure; a failure who sits on her computer all day watching others live their wonderful lives and can only think 'I can do that' but doesn't have the balls to do it. {end story}

You ever felt like you're on the outside looking in?

    I don’t know who you’re hanging out with, but no one I am seems to know what they’re doing either. I’m sure I do not. YOu are not alone, really.

    If I did not know that I did not write this I would think I had. I keep waiting for focus and purpose to find me, or for me to find them.

      Inertia can be so hard to push past. But you’ve got to get on that horse and ride, A2. We don’t care what that old line about “good thins coming to those that wait” says (actually, it says that.). don’t wait…seek it out and make it happen. If you want to, of course. :) XO, OOC

    I think Facebook was invented specifically to make you feel like you’re not doing enough with your life.
    Thirty was my turning point. Be patient and it will come!!!

    There’s some saying from a recovery program: Don’t judge your insides by other people’s outsides.
    We are so hard on ourselves when we make comparisons. We can never truly know another person’s reality. Everyone has some struggles. Everyone has some ease.
