Almost everyone goes through this feeling in his or her life, Feeling Worthless and this can happen anytime. And the reason can be anything. Most people feel this during their development years. The most common reason to feel like this is low self-confidence.
What is worthlessness?
Feeling worthless or worthlessness is basically the feeling like you’re lacking your worth. You don’t have any value or you’re good for nothing.
When someone is going through this feeling of worthlessness he or she usually feels this in every aspect of their life. For example – They’re not good as a son or daughter, not a good father or mother, or not a good friend. From a work Perspective, they carry low self-esteem and they feel like they can’t do things because they’re not good or capable.
Why you’re feeling worthless?
There are many reasons people go through this feeling of worthlessness. Some of the main reasons I’m going to mention below.
People made you feel like this
Yes, sometimes it’s not you, it’s them. Sometimes you’re not responsible for this thought process. People around you make you feel like this again and again.
Parents usually keep their hopes on their children and in the process they start to compare them with other children. When children don’t meet their parent’s expectations they start scolding them. That can cause low self-esteem in them and they started feeling worthless.
The same goes for other toxic people in your life like a toxic relationship, toxic friendships, toxic boss, colleagues. If you’re surrounded by toxic people, they can definitely make you feel worthless.
Change in life
It can be losing someone dear to you, losing your job, or going through a breakup. These sudden changes in life can affect your low self-esteem. If you’re mentally weak at that point and having low self-esteem, this can definitely trigger your feeling of worthlessness.
You’re seeing a happy couple together after your breakup, you feel low all of sudden. If you’ve lost your job and your friend or cousin get promotions, you’ll feel like you’re Worthless.
Everyone’s life is different, everyone’s circumstances are different. But as a human, it’s in our nature to compare our life with others. If we’re not focused on our lives and our goals we usually check out other people and if they’re doing good than us, we feel depressed and feel behind in life.
These days the popular platform for comparison is social media. When people compare their life with each other, the feeling of worthlessness strikes in.
So these all are some reasons and mainly the trigger points for this feeling of worthlessness. With all these feelings if you have got a negative mindset these feelings can be more problematic for you.
