I sometimes feel irrelevant in life. I have spent my entire existence trying to be relevant, yet I often feel like the 6 string acoustic guitar in the corner of your room which only has 4 working strings. Everyone wants to tell others that they have you, but no one wants to pick you up, fix your two broken strings, and actually play you till their fingers bleed.
I feel like I am just not appreciated.
At work I do the work of 3 full time employees and I rarely get recognized for my valuable contributions.
At home I am just the guy who provides groceries, a roof over the head, lights to read by, clothes, does the dishes, cooking, etc. I always do nice things for my kids and take them everywhere. I coach their youth sports teams.I rarely hear a thank you.
I would say something about a social life, but alas this guy does not really have one due to working so much and being a single parent so I rarely get to hang out with friends.
Love life, yep that one is nonexistent as well since women just are not interested.
It would be nice to occasionally hear from someone who says “thank you” or “I really appreciate all that you do”.
I know all of you people reading this appreciate me and you have said as much. I am more referring to the people that I actually see on a day to day basis.
I feel alone all the time even when I am around people. It is if I am a riding around town in Wonder Woman's jet of invisibility and no one can see me.
