I feel worthless, stupid and ugly

feelworthlessHow do you get the terrible feeling of being a loner to go away? I spend every lunch hour in the library. I don’t eat or talk since my friend decided that her boyfriend was the most important thing in her life. This happened on my birthday and after my boyfriend dumped me so I feel worthless, stupid and ugly. I want that feeling to go away. How do I do that?

Advice: I sympathize with you. You’ve just lost two important people in your life, and you’re going through the “Nobody loves me, I’m going to eat some worms” stage, which of course is the pits.

Let’s look at your situation from a different angle. Your best friend got a boyfriend and she’s all wrapped up in him now. That’s no reflection on you, so please don’t take it personally! And most girls and guys go through the unpleasant experience of being dumped by a boyfriend or girlfriend–they may indeed go through it again and again. Again, that is no reflection on you. Many young people flit from flower to flower. They’re crazy about a person for a month or several, and then they’re crazy about someone else. So stop feeling worthless, stupid and ugly. After all, you did attract the guy in the first place, didn’t you?

I have someone in my life who loves me and will never leave me; he will always be my faithful friend. His name is Jesus Christ. And He loves me so much that He gave His life on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins so that I could be forgiven and go to heaven some day. Jesus Christ loves you too and wants to be your Savior and your Friend, as He is mine. You can learn more about Him today. 

May the Lord lift your heart and give you joy.

In His love, Dr. Muriel
