    I feel like I am a failure mostly when my depression is acting up. I worry about being a failure which is definitely anxiety related. Either way, it’s a terrible feeling

    Failure, even if true or not, is part of a cycle. Nature's cycle for instance, shows us that failing is a part of growing. However, how is feeling like a failure affecting you?

    That’s a great question that I wish I had a great answer to. That’s something I still struggle with. I’ve found that I feel like a failure the most after something goes wrong or if I don’t have a goal or plan. Making daily goals or to do lists helped. I kept the stuff easy at first. But I set other goals that are a little more long term like 1-2 weeks. I check off the goals and tasks and when I can see what I accomplished it helps to feel less like a failure. Therapy to help you identify why you feel that way might help too.

      I feel like majority of the time a failure when I cannot do anything right. It makes me feel worthless and to lose my self worth

    Well PTSD is an anxiety disorder, so it's both. A symptom of PTSD is anxiety.
