I Can’t Help But Feel Used

How many times have you sacrificed your happiness in order to make someone else happy? I rarely have anything to be happy about, so I tend not to do this. It’s completely draining for me to give away the tiniest ounce of what is holding me together.

Recently, I decided that someone would be worth it. Making them happy was all that I wanted to do… After it was all said and done, I felt good about it for the first few days. Then things started turning around. That person no longer cares that I even exist. And I am sitting here feeling so used.

I never let people into my life. I have walls up, and I make that very obvious. I am not sure how this person managed to get through, but they did. I am so stupid.

Burnt Out

I am completely burnt out. Defeated. Exhausted. I can’t think straight anymore. Most of my mornings consist of waking up and asking myself, “What do I have to crawl out of bed to fuck up today?”

I am too tired to be passionate about anything right now even though there are so many things that I want to do. I am capable of so much, I know that. But I’m completely drained. I haven’t had time off to relax for two years. There is too much going on and I have fallen behind. I do not feel as if I can catch up now.

Ugh, Feelings

It’s really weird for me to say that I have feelings for someone. I haven’t allowed myself to do that in a while. There’s been a crush here and there, but nothing ever real. This time it’s real, and it sucks.

Happiness Was Not Made for Me

I have always been denied happiness. Every time I get close to it, someone comes by and tells me not to bother because it’s a waste of my time. I always second guess myself, knowing that I will ruin it. I have been content with staying away from everyone and everything. It’s at the point where no one even bothers to ask me to hang out anymore.

I can disappear and no one will even notice. I may already have. I always have a bag packed and ready to go. I just need to walk out the door and not look back.

Maybe I will have it one day.

Entitlement?

I work for a really great company whose brand I love and personally consume. I am currently in a position that I have to do an amount of work that is meant for two or more people. I put in the extra hours to get my work done. Yes, I do complain that it’s a lot of work at times, but I wouldn’t switch my position to another one that is at the same level as mine. Even though it’s really overwhelming, and I have the fact that it’s impossible for one person to do this job alone looming over my head, I don’t feel that the company owes me anything. I see it as I owe the company to do my job as efficiently as possible under the circumstances. I asked for the position, and know that I am easily replaceable. It is retail after all. A fair amount of turnover is expected.

I feel like as much as I love the company I work for, I don’t fit in with the work ethic of the people at this level. They all feel like the company owes them everything for the minimal work they do. I’m not only talking about the people I work with directly, but just in general. I’ve noticed it in myself, but working in retail has turned me into a really bitter person. Most of the time I don’t deal with customers directly, but I still can’t stand people.

I need to take a step back and find something that I feel like isn’t draining my soul out of me.

Explaining Me to Myself

Sometimes I wonder why the heck I do anything or why I react to certain things the way I do. I always think that everything I do is stupid. Everyone reacting to me negatively is correct. If I were someone else and had to deal with me, I probably wouldn’t like me. I’ve always understood why my family abandoned me emotionally, but it still hurts.

It’s so much easier to not care, and not have emotions. But that terrifies people. I don’t know how to interact with people properly. As much as I want to, every time I try I end up failing miserably. It’s exhausting. I really don’t know what to do anymore.
