Post Why am i like me???

Every day of my life i look at my friends and think wouldn't they be better off without me? MOst of the time i think, yes they would. Why is this i'm happy with myself apart from being too shy sometimes. Do i need help or is it just a phase that will pass??

Now why do you feel that they would be better off? Obviously if they felt the same, they wouldn't be friends with you anymore, but the fact that you still call them your friends says a lot. You guys probably hang out and things like that, so you must be doing something right, correct? Don't worry about that, if they felt the same, they wouldn't be your friends, but they are

It's probablly just a phase. Why would you not like to be you? Everyone is different and everyone brings different qualities to things. If all your friends were shy it probablly wouldn't work out, same if all of them were loud.

It sounds to me like you might have depression. This can happen for no known reason due to a chemical imbalance in the brain. It usually lasts about six months but is not good to try and cope with on your own. You may need a course of pills from a doctor. It's nothing to be ashamed of so do tell your parents and ask to see a doctor. Or you could ask to see a doc and tell them your problem. Please don't bottle it up.

don't worry about it too much, or you may run the risk of getting more depressed, but if you ask me i would say that you have depression, and you should go see someone or call a hotline and talk about it, or else it may get worse. Just think about everything in your life that you do like, and be careful not to do anything rash. You may also want to talk to your friends, becasue i'm sure that if you talk to them, they will reasure you that they wouldn't be better off without you, because ,whether we realize it or not, every person in your life has an effect on the overall outcome, and without even one of those people, our lives would not be the same.
