It's hard when life is great and happiness should abound but feelings of insecurity and a severe lack of self-worth stand in the way of feeling the good.

I just want to understand what's wrong, to know if it's serious or just... normal human stuff. I want to stop overanalyzing everything I do and say, the way I look and dress, the way people treat me. I want to be confident that I am a person worth spending time with, worth knowing.

I feel confident about so little these days, even though I sometimes refuse to acknowledge it. I'm here and I'm so lucky and I'm not sad. Just overwhelmed with thoughts, 24/7. Not giving myself credit, not thinking I'm enough.

It's a lot, and it hurts.


  1. Beautiful.

    But, you know, we can't apologize for our emotions. Nor can we rationalize them. Sometimes we just have to feel them, and have the faith that someday they'll make sense to us.

    In other news, we need to be friends simply because you're a fellow Oxford comma user. :)

    Glad I found your blog.

    1. This is so true. It's hard to just let them be.

      Love the Oxford comma!

      Thanks for following; I followed your blog, too!
