Is it normal to think everyone else/the world is a burden?
I was recently reading some common thoughts and feelings depressed people have.
One is “I am a burden”, a thought they have on the path to suicidal tendencies.
But I don’t relate to this, and I believe I am depressed.
If anything, I feel the opposite. There’s times when I feel like I have no life, I don’t exist or matter, so how could I possibly be a burden?
It never feels like others have to put up with me - I feel like I have to put up with everyone else.
Everyone else, the world and it’s problems/my problems, seem like the burden to me.
The weight I carry. Realizing how people are, the fact they are who they are, good and bad, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Especially the latter.
Life feels like a burden to me. But I don’t relate to I feeling like a burden to others.
