Is that how you feel or is that creative writing? Feelings are not facts, though they may sound like truth in your head. Feeling worthless is a feeling I know well, but it isn’t an accurate feeling, not for me and not for you. We are full of worth in someone’s eyes. Just look around you.

You don’t have to lie about how you feel, but you don’t have to take your feelings to be truths about yourself either. I’d rather hear the truth about your thoughts than what you think the right answer will be. We can’t work on solutions without knowing about the problems. Besides, secrets weigh more than anything else ever will. The secrets will take you down with them.


  • I wish I was invisible
  • I wish I didn’t care what other people thought
  • I wish I didn’t have to work
  • I wish I didn’t feel so much
  • I wish I didn’t pick up other people’s feelings
  • I wish I didn’t have to take so many medications just to feel semi “normal”
  • I wish my mom would come back from her illness and be her old self
  • I wish none of my pets would ever die
  • I wish I would stop getting cramps
  • I wish I could instantly lose 80 pounds
  • I wish I could see my best friends every day
  • I wish I would stop being a procrastinator
  • I wish I felt like a good friend
  • I wish I felt like a good wife
  • I wish I was young again, like… in my 20s.
  • I wish people I love would never leave
  • I wish my heart would never break again
  • I wish I didn’t cry so easily
  • I wish I just felt better about myself.
