I believe everyone should have the opportunity for their voice to be heard. I use a trauma informed, person centred approach in counselling.

In short - probably not, feelings are like waves, always changing and we just have to ride them out. Things can take a long time to accept and understand but it is unlikely you will always feel as you do now.

I dont really know. Personally i stop thinking about the things that make me feel sorry for myself. If i did think about them i would i just block it out.

No one can answer that question but you. You are the one controlling that. No one can change how you feel about yourself but you. People can tell you what do do, but you have to make up your mind that you aren't what anyone says but that you are that awesome person that one person has told you. Maybe more than one. Encourage yourself to no feel sorry for yourself

I don't know, are you? Because I can't change how you feel only you can change how you feel. I recommend being more open minded and consider others views also.

Feeling sorry for yourself is just a temporary feeling. Eventually, in time, you will have your life where you want it to be, and you will no longer feel sorry for yourself, but you will feel accomplished.

Things aren't always going to be bad! Even though it seems rough right now, they get better! My mom always tells me, "This too shall pass!" :)

maybe yess, because being happy is a decision and self love comes when we accept our self. and love our perfection and imperfections

I personally dont think we should have self pitty, Just because you always want to boost yourself and if your constantly feeling sorry for yourself your going to be lacking the boost you need

Some poeple that are always feeling "sorry' for themelves have been taught to fele this way. Taught that they should be proud

No, you will eventually figure things out, and perhaps with the help of someone you know or a listener you will no longer feel sorry for yourself.

if you continue to feed your mind that kind of data. probably. look the mind is the greatest tool in the history of all things. and like a computer, it gives you answers or responses based on that you feed it. constantly living the idea of feeling sorry for your self or subconsciously feeding your mind even the slightest idea of self-pity that for sure you will. but if you take the latter route and decide to feed your mind the good kind of data than you'll most likely focus on the good and not feel sorry for yourself. its what you allow your mind to dwell that determines your state of mind
