Patronising people

I need to moan. I’m sick to death of being patronised. Most of my life I’ve had “you don’t understand” or “you’re wrong”. Today I get told calm down when I feel I have every right to complain. I have a voice but obviously it’s a little unimportant voice. These are my nearest and dearest who say these things to me. I’m sick and tired of arguing my case. I don’t have the strength anymore but one thing I do know. I’m not going mad. I am worthy. No wonder I prefer my own company.

I totally get where you are coming from. I am also a soft spoken person, but that doesn't mean I don't have alot to say! People will always try to undermine you. But you live for yourself not for the pleasure of other people. at the end of the day, its not them looking into a mirror at you. It's you. And your self worth is above all else. I'm sorry you feel this way. I am struggling with low self esteem as well and I know how it feels.


Hi Km147 It’s weird cause I am not a shy person but I definitely have low self esteem. It creates such a rage within me and I get so frustrated. Who the heck do these people think they are? You’re right about people undermining us. They obviously think they know what they’re talking about. I am sorry you feel like this too. I just want to be left alone I’m sick of everyone and their opinions.


Sorry some people just don't want to listen just try not to work yourself up over it
