Needing help
   
Worrisome psychological signs
The way we think and manage our emotions can influence our ability to seek help and get through difficult situations. Here are a few psychological signs that things aren’t going so well for you. If even one rings a bell, it may be time to go looking for some help!

"I’m not worth anything." You think you're not important or that no one's interested in talking about what you're feeling. You think that all the guys on the planet are better than you, better looking than you, and smarter than you. You believe you’re worthless. You feel like no one cares about you, and like you don’t have what it takes to be loved. You think that no one would care — or even notice! — if you disappeared.

"I think it's hopeless." You think your situation will never change. You think that things won't ever get back to normal. You think that no matter what you do, you'll always feel this bad. These kinds of thoughts keep you from finding solutions to your problems.

"I’m all alone in life." You feel terribly alone. You don’t think anyone can, wants to, or will help you. You feel abandoned and deserted by everyone. Feeling you’re all alone in life can lead you to isolate yourself even more. And the more you isolate yourself, the more you worsen your situation.

"Everyone hates me and everything is always my fault." You feel like everyone is against you. You feel like you always get blamed for everything, even when it’s not your fault. You feel like you can’t trust anyone. You feel like everyone only wants to take advantage of you. The problem with these kinds of thoughts is that they can make you feel distrustful of others.

"I want to get back at them." You think about hurting people who have hurt you. You fantasize about insulting, hitting, or killing people who have hurt you. You've been building up anger for too long time now.

Suicidal ideas. You’ve started thinking about suicide. In fact, you’ve been thinking about it more and more. You wonder how others will feel once they learn you’ve killed yourself. You’ve started thinking about who you’ll give your things to. If you start thinking concretely about suicide, you need to get help immediately (read more here about suicide). Call us right away. It’s really important that you don’t keep your suicidal ideas to yourself.
