    idk if anyone else has this problem but writing about myself (like on my ucas form/personal statement/cv etc) makes me cry.

    i find it impossible to write about my personality without crying. whenever i try to write something positive about myself it feels like a lie.

    i almost started crying in form a few months ago when we watched a video about employability skills because i don't have any of them

    i have no idea how im going to get a job or get into uni if even i don't think they should pick me over other people but not getting into uni would be like the end of the world for me

    Wow I thought I was the only one. Having depression doesn't help as it just causes me to procrastinate even more
