What’s wrong with me? I feel like I’m not good enough, like there’s a part of me that’s broken, or should I say incomplete.
I’ve been struggling with self esteem since time immemorial. Growing up, I knew I wasn’t as brilliant as my younger sister. She had a way of making me feel inferior. And my parents always compared me to her, using her as a yardstick for success. She’s doing fine business wise now, and here I am still struggling to put my life in order. I’m 30 and I have no real job, no real friends; just people always asking “where are you now” “what are you doing now” and all those questions that make me feel like a failure.
Heaven knows I’m trying hard to make ends meet. The country isn’t particularly helping matters. I’ve gone from interview to interview and I’ve just given up. They say they don’t take graduates with 2:2. I even tried to set up a business, somehow, it failed. It’s as though everything I touch just melts into liquidation.
To be honest, I feel like I just want to end it all… But I heard killing oneself is painful, Plus, I don’t want to be remembered as the guy who gave up on himself. But, nothing just seems to be working. I’m tired, honestly!
