I have been trying to change
#1
I want to make a small list of things I have been trying to do to fix my life.
  • Stopped looking for fake jobs online and back to learning to code.
  • Started reading Drivers Ed e-books so I can get a temporary permit.
  • Stretching and working out in the morning.
  • Eating healthy food like fruit, vegetables, and grains.
  • Stopped playing video games.
  • Cleaning house more often.
I have been feeling better recently but I have stopped looking for employment and tried learning again.
I think I am afraid to put myself out there.
I have accounts on Upwork and Fiverr, but haven't gotten any hits yet so I am going to try and improve my profiles for those after some more research.
The sick feeling in my stomach is gone but being like that just made me too neurotic.
I wasn't really accomplishing anything but I was torturing myself thinking I was.

It is late so I will end here.

Good for you, keep up the good work. I don't know why you posted this in the depression section, this is something that is very positive. I know reading what you posted about yourself and the things you are trying to change made me feel more positive. It's nice to see someone recognize things they need to change and strive to make those changes. All the luck in the world to you, don't stop.

I have also been trying to change myself(being more involved in school, getting better grades, exercising more). However, I haven't really gotten anywhere due to me always procrastinating and basically lying to myself about starting my change. However, I haven't given up since I just have so much to lose. For example, if I just stop with doing homework, I'll let the people who I care about down for they know what I'm capable of. If I let them down, I wouldn't know what to do anymore. I have a tip that has helped me though which is to really physically write a list/checklist on what you want to accomplish in a day. It kind've motivates you during the day. Keeps you on track with all the checking or crossing off your list. Makes you feel good as it shows what you are accomplishing. But yeah, think about the most important people in your life and use it for fuel. Then, write it all down

It sounds like you are rather passive about your life.  I'm that way in many areas.
I admire aggressive go-getters who just step out and do stuff and take risks.  I'm not really that way.  So I understand some of where you're coming from and I'm sorry you've been feeling so low.  Depression is awful!
I think that all the things you've done above are good ones.  Exercise kicks in endorphins and that helps motivate you.  Eating healthy gives you more energy and helps you to think more clearly.  Stopping the video games is an EXCELLENT choice.  And cleaning your house gives you a sense of accomplishment and lets you enjoy your atmosphere instead of feeling defeated.  I hope you'll keep up all of those.
I would love to see you do something else in your journey, and that is to change your name---not your real name but the name you're using on this forum.  It is self-defeating.  You are neither worthless NOR a loser.  Don't accept that for yourself!!  Words are powerful.  Don't identify yourself with words that take away your motivation.  Can you think of a name that describes yourself with more hopeful terms?  I would love to see you do that.
I'm going to pray for you right now:
"Lord Jesus, lover of our souls, thank you for creating this wonderful human being whom You love deeply, whom You want to heal.  I ask You to invade every area with Your Love and Your Truth and kick the enemy out.  Bring Your healing and Your perspective as Creator.  Bless You, Lord and thank You.  Amen."

Thank you for the encouragement guys.

I have been stumbling the past few months but I have not given up completely.

I am just feeling down a lot.

It sounds to me that you are doing the best you can and that's great.

I have one suggestion though. Get in touch with one of the moderators here and have them change your screen name for you because each time you log in here you see "Worthless Loser" looking back at you and that is something you are not.
