I've Done Bad Stuff In My LifeFeelingsI've Done Bad Stuff In My Life<div class="ExternalClassD90E06941A4F46D4BE9B4A326C1A650A"><p>​I want help. I'm too scared to ask though. I feel like no one will understand my problems or will think they aren't important enough to worry about. I feel like I don't deserve help either. After all the bad stuff I've done in my life. Maybe this sadness is karma. Maybe wanting to go to sleep and not wake up is the payback for being a messed up person. I just wish this was all over. <br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass8298E3D1EDC94A7BB430FAFC8F3F4E3A"><p>​We are glad that you are writing in and sharing your feelings.  Life can be tough, we agree. You are human and all humans make mistakes sometimes. The goal is NOT to quit living, but to learn from those mistakes so you don't do them again. We have a few pointers to help you through this time:</p><ul><li><a href="/Pages/dealing-with-regret.aspx?Topic=Regrets">Dealing With Regret</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/tip-20-Questions-to-Ask-Yourself-if-You-Feel-Like-Giving-Up.aspx?Topic=Regrets">20 Questions To Ask Yourself</a></li></ul><p>We agree that you need help with how you are feeling about yourself and perhaps even help to recognize changes that you can make that will improve your life and your happiness. We suggest that you identify a trusted adult to talk to whether it be a parent, a grandparent, the school counselor or perhaps even the minister at a church. Tell them you are struggling and need some help to sort things out and get on the right track with everything.<br></p><p>If they don't feel they are qualified to help you, then perhaps they can direct you to someone who can. You don't have to go through this alone. We want to help you and will do what we can.  </p><p>Let us know how things are going and whether you have identified that person to talk to and if you have shared your feelings with them.<br></p><p>Hope to hear from you soon.</p><p>​Pat, Counselor<br></p></div>13
