Can you confess?

This is an opportunity to confess anything that you have done, anything that is bothering you, or things you realize about yourself.  Hopefully, we can encourage one another though it.  I have many confessions to make, and I think its good to let some of them go.  I have recognized them and am willing to share.

I am insecure, and feel like a misfit most places I go.  I am very sensitive and want everybody to like me.  I wish I had real friends ( or one that I can call true).  I am overly compassionate to the point people take advantage of me.  I am a very hard worker, but feel like a failure because I can't raise my daughter (11 weeks old) because I work full time. 

The list can go on..but I would like to know if anyone else can confess..

me and the hubs 2 weeks ago

I have a phobia of failure.  It sucks because fearing failure means that EVERY aspect of your life is effected.  You can fail at anything and I think I do almost all of the time.

I would like to confess: I am never perfect, I mess up, I can be mean and bitchy. But all in all it's life. You can either like me or hate me, I wont' worry over it. I am here just like everyone else. To pass the time in the day and night. if I've bothered you or hurt your feeling, well I apologize and want to move forward. i also would love to have those that have hurt me to do the same.

Failure is most definately easy to fear.  Our society is so focused on success that it seems like failure at anything makes you a complete loser.  I feel like sometimes failure is necessary in order to achieve the best successes in life.  It makes you stronger and wiser.

I take an anti anxiety pill as need and see a psychiatrist every month. It's a secret from my family. My whole family (mom, grandparents) has been afflicted by one mental illness or another, so I'm taking preventative measures. But I feel like if anyone knows about my "allergy pills" they will think I'm a weak person with no coping skills and therefore, I'm a failure as a person.

There's my confession.

I think that it is very strong of you to step up and do what you can to get through it.  My mom is bi polar and the rest of her family all have mental issues too.It could get serious at any given point so it is good that you are doing what you are doing.

NO!! More power to you! At least she has one parent who loves her!!

I confess I'm not confident in my own body. I wish I looked like I did 5 years ago. And I'm very compassionate, sometimes to compassionate and it never works in my favor.

I'm scared to death that dh will not come home from his next deployment and I will fall into a horrible depression & turn to drugs or alcohol or something.  

I'm constantly thinking my family is gonna die. I can just picture them dead... it's pretty creepy :(

and a lot more I can't think of right now...
