Why do I feel unloved?
More and more, the world around me seems cold and unfriendly. People, even family and friends, seem distant and detached. There’s a void deep within me that always needs to be filled. I look for love wherever I can find it, even if it’s in an unhealthy relationship. I would do anything to be loved and to gain the affections of others. At times I feel abandoned by the world and rejected by everyone
Why do I attract the wrong type of person and stay in unhealthy relationships?
I finally meet someone who I think is different from all the others. I am enthusiastic about the prospect of a long-term relationship. Then little by little, I begin to find out things that I’m not quite thrilled about. In the end it turns out that this person is exactly like all of the others.
When I’m in a relationship that no longer makes me happy, I do nothing about it. I tell myself that maybe I won’t find anyone better or that maybe things will change, Time passes and nothing changes. I know that I want out, but something keeps me from leaving the relationship.
Why don’t I do the things that I know would make me happy?
I know what it would take to make me happy. It’s not terribly hard to get or to do and it doesn’t cost very much, if anything. But I don’t go for it. "It’s not worth it" or "I’ll do it later" are the phrases that keep bouncing around in my head while I continue to deny myself even the simplest pleasures in life. I reject opportunities and would rather help other people than selfishly "indulge" myself.
Why do I feel so hopeless?
I feel as if I’m doing everything I have to do and I’ll never be able to do the things that I really want to do. I often feel tired, disgusted and fed up. I’m tired of dreaming and fantasizing about how things could be. I don’t think there’s any way I’ll ever reach my goals. I’m in a rut and it’s all I can do to keep my head above water. I’m just not able to get excited about anything anymore.
