    I am a little frustrated.

    Most of the time I feel good about myself. Sometimes I feel great.

    Yesterday I suddenly had feelings of complete worthlessness. Not just a little doubt. Truly without value as a human being - as a man.

    They are very old feelings from as far back as when I was a kid.

    I'm frustrated because they come from NOWHERE.

    Sometimes I have an insecurity about X quality in myself or Y quality in myself. Insecurities are very specific: "I think I am not <strong/fast/smart/cool/sexy> enough." Then I get over it. Laugh it off. Shrug it off.

    But in this case there is nothing specific. There was absolutely no trigger. It just happened. Everything is normal and then all of a sudden in the next minute I am pathetic - weak - unfit - worthless as a man.

    Last night after my mom's birthday it hit me like a train.

    It came out of the blue.

    Right now I am only about 60% back to normal. I am sure it will go away in the next couple of days (or after my next workout). But... What the fuck.

    So how did that start?

    And I feel like this sometimes too :hug:
    Usually after I've played video games for 6 hours straight or I've let myself down in some way :)
    What works for me is simply calling up a friend and go out for coffee or go to the beach, something of that sort. That fixes it right up

    I honestly suggest pushing your exercise routine harder... I've found in times of great frustration/depression or unhappiness it's helped me a ton.

    No idea. I mean I know when it started chronologically, it started after I got in an argument with my sister. But I always get in arguments, that is nothing out of the ordinary.

    It could just be a passing biological state. It's like an emotional headache. Sometimes your mind just doesn't work right and then it gets back to normal function.

    I'm not sure what it is, but this is a possibilities. States of being aren't always a result of external factors or even psychological thought, feeling or unconscious patterns.

    That must be it.

    UGH.

    I am fortunate that this is not a persistent event. Steadily decreasing over time. Hopefully stays that way :x:

    We all feel down sometimes for no reason. It's when you continue to feel down for no reason that there is a problem.

    On the other hand... I'm not sure if I care whether or not it is "normal" or "weird." The only thing that matters is that it was disturbing and unpleasant and I'm glad it's the exception.

    Feeling worthless reminded me of that phase in my life when I felt that way ALL THE DAMN TIME. So I am over-sensitive to it: "not this again! :noes:"

    As everyone said, it happened and then it went away. Working out helped.

    I call them "Neurotransmitter hiccups." Exercise helps increase levels. :rofl:
