Have you tried to pity yourself?
March 26, 2008 7:05pm CST
Someone whom I don't know once told me that "In pity, you won't be able to gain anything". I somehow believed him and I know that it is true. However, how come i always end up pitying myself. Is it because it's already 3 months since i quit on my job hoping that i would be accepted on a new job vacancy but still i am not employed. I always encounter this problem. Everytime i am depressed i end up losing my confidence the effect is that i can't apply on a new job. Everytime i lose on something like in a competition or even in the aspect of love i will be depressed and end up pitying myself again and again. Although right now i have a beautiful girl with me but it would be better i i am earning well to support her and my mom too. Well i don't know why i feel this way. Am i sick? Have anybody felt like this way? What did you do to overcome it? All suggestions/reactions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi. I understand how you feel. I've been like that. I always pity myself for so many reasons. I've read a lot of books for self improvement. I've gone through a lot of changes in my life but I still feel I'm not enough. I recently realized that I just can't accept who I am bottom line. I don't appreciate who I am and what I'm capable of. I've learned that my parents, other people and the past made me like that. But I've found out I can control myself and become who I want to be. I've learned to accept who I am and love me for exactly who I am. I suggest you watch you can heal your life by louise hay and the secret movie by rhonda byrne. Or you can also watch you tube, search for tpstv. It's a series that you can watch and will surely help you. Loving or honoring yourself will be the start of everything. Goodluck to you!

Hey there.. Thanks for responding. even though you've read a lot of books, still you it's not enough? I feel the same way. We must really apply what we read but it is hard to apply it. Well i guess i'll have to watch tpstv and i'll try to find the secret movie =). I did try to love myself and uplift myself but everytime i'd be down again, pitying my self will come back. I'm still trying to learn and live a life without pitying myself. It is really true, you CAN'T gain ANYHTING if one will always put himself down. It is really dragging and can affect the people surrounding us. But it is so hard to cope up when you dont have a job and our family is struggling financially. Well, i hope and pray that things will turn around again and things will be ok. I have to start it from me. Thanks to you pepper and Good Luck too.

Yeah , sometimes I do pity myself. Especially if I am going through a tough time, I would just like to vent out and ended up pitying myself. It is a sad feeling to be pity to yourself, luckinly when I am down, I have my friends and family to cheer me up and restore my confidence.

Thanks Blue... well, I really admire you coz you have your family and friends to back you up. For me, yes I also have families and friends but i really dont know why I always hide things for myself. Even problems i encounter in my life, i end up just keeping it to myself. This is what i am used to do in order (maybe) for me not to share what i feel or i'm thinking also that my attitude would be contagious to them if somebody will know. But i guess it's really hard to keep things to yourself. Oh, I am really thankful that we have this website to share what you feel. It's true, it will lighten up your load. This will be a good practice for me to maybe share it also to one of my closest friends.
