Concentrating on Feeling Worthless

I need help she told me. Okay, I agreed. What can I do? Tell me I’m not totally worthless. You are not totally worthless, I parroted. You are not convincing, she told me. I need a better friend. What are you doing right? I asked her. Nothing. What do you love to do? Long silence. I don’t know…. Have you ever enjoyed your life? Not really. Surely there has been a time in your life when you had a great day. She shakes her head ‘no’. Maybe when you were younger? Kids bullied me, she told me. I was hated by everyone. Surely not everyone, I said. She glared at me. Even my parents hated me. I could not imagine this. Even when you were little? They used to beat me, she said. They were horrible. My life has been terrible. But now you have a job, right? She shook her head ‘no.’ I got fired yesterday. But you have a great guy. Another head shake. He left me for another person. I could readily imagine it.

Hi Caren, it's so sad when a person's self esteem is that low. Their aura gives out negativity, and they need help to, "fix it." You wrote well on this subject. ~

Thank you Regina. It is sad people do not know they reap what they expect to reap.
