Feeling irresponsible

Your Question

I’m irresponsible. I ruin everything I get. I just spilled something and broke my piano/keyboard. I’m the worst. I’ll never be able to do anything about it. I bet its my fault that my dads room is messy too


Hello there, thanks for your question!
First of all, we want to say that it takes courage to reach out and share what you’re going through. It’s not easy to admit when things aren’t going well, but opening up is the first step towards finding solutions. So, welcome, and know that you’re not alone in feeling this way.
Feeling irresponsible and like you’re constantly messing things up can be incredibly tough. It’s important to remember that making mistakes is a part of being human. We all have moments where things don’t go as planned, and that’s okay. What’s important is how we respond to those mistakes and what we learn from them. This article may be helpful for you
Breaking your piano or keyboard might feel like a big setback right now, but it doesn’t define your worth as a person. It’s natural to feel upset or frustrated, but try not to be too hard on yourself. Instead, focus on what you can do to address the situation. Maybe there’s a way to repair it, or perhaps it’s an opportunity to explore other interests or hobbies.
As for your dad’s messy room, it’s important to recognise that you’re not responsible for it. Your dad’s room is his space, like your room is your space. Household chores are typically shared responsibilities, and it’s okay to ask for help if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Communication is key, so consider talking to your dad about how you’re feeling and how you can work together to keep the spaces tidy.
