How to not feel worthless

Hi everyone

I apologise if this seems like a self help post, I don’t mean it to be.

How do you stop the cycle of feeling like a Worthless failure?

I was always top of the class in School but then I met my ex and got into stuff that was harmful to both body and mind. Lost my way. Completely.

I tried to get back on track and went to uni, then went on to train as a teacher and got a good job.

I now teach and also study for a doctorate part time.

Reading the above I already feel like an egotistical prick. But the fact that I went to a local uni (not highly rated) is starting to depress me to the point that I feel worthless.

I know how that might sound so pathetic.

But I feel truly depressed about the way other people in my field of study react. They assume I’m stupid and automatically not as good as them.

I had the grades to go to a better uni but not the socio/ economic capacity to do so. I didn’t realise at 20 that it would have such an impact.

I now feel ashamed of my degree even though I got a first. I feel like a worthless loser.

What teachings can break me out of this?

I rarely post to Reddit. But this has become quite an emotionally draining area that I need to get rid of.

Please ignore if not suitable for this.

I teach Buddhism at high school level but would love an intervention from one of you guys, many of whom seem well schooled in this field.
