i kind of feel like a waste of energy

ive been very stressed lately, and it’s been so hard to feel good about myself. my parents are always complaining about how much i cost to “keep around” and with college coming up they seem less than thrilled to help pay, which would be okay if school didn’t prevent me from having a job. at this point in time, i just feel like i’m worthless- a waste of space that no one really should care about because i just use up time and resources, and i don’t have opportunities to fix the problems i’m seeing- which just leads me to feel like a failure. i dunno, i might just be stressed though

that's a terrible thing for your parents to say and it simply isn't true. you're stressed for sure and that is okay, but there is no need to put anything additional on yourself

they're probably stressed financially too and they're unfairly putting it on you. they still care about your wellbeing absolutely. never forget that. youre just gonna have to be the bigger person here.

i feel the same way. sometimes for a day, sometimes for two. it helps being around people and seeing that the world we live in exists mostly in our heads. are lives what we make of it and frankly it's exhausting to go through life feeling unwanted. anytime i'm really in the dumps, i remember that the situation im in right now is never permanent and i've always felt better eventually. give it time, you'll become more independent and start making decisions for yourself and little by little you can shed the weight put on by other people. be excited for it. it's gonna be a fun ride.
