i dont know how to explain

Community Member

i dont know whats wrong with me but i feel like everyone around me is sick of me, im even sick of myself, im getting stupid and i overthink too much, which causes me to mess up what im doing. for example i even overthought bringing pushbikes into the house, people around me get mad because of it, and im a bit of a crybaby in the sense i let everything bottle up and so when the straw breaks the camels back it seems like i cry over small stuff. somebody close to me got angry because i said i cant stop overthinking, they said 'just dont think' but its not that easy because if i didnt think id still mess up and theyd be even angrier and i cant stop thinking, theres no winning and i feel hopeless and everyone just wants to get rid of me it feels like. ive been told i act like a child and i cry when things get too hard. i dont know how to change myself, i want to be the opposite of what i am now, i want to be confident and i want to be able to control my emotions, im too emotional and i can tell i make everyone around me lives' a little bit less bareable.
