I don’t know who to talk to.

I feel like if I talk to anyone about how I’m feeling, be it a family member, a close friend, or a stranger, I feel like I’d be bothering and wasting their time. That’s why I don’t talk to them at all about how I feel.

I don’t know, do other people feel this way, or is it just me?

    I think everyone feels like that from time to time. Some are easier to let it roll off their back though. Personally I have a very hard time. I spend a lot of time writing stuff out. I leave most of it private though. It’s sometimes hard to talk to others that know you. It’s easy to worry about what they may think of you. Sometimes though, if one is lucky, there is the one person who will listen. I hope you can find them. πŸ™‚

  2. Yesss i feel that too sometimes! it’s like it’s a feeling that takes over for a while (ranging from like a day to a whole week sometimes, maybe even more 😦 ) then eventually just fades away itself. Ofcourse, I always have help from my best friend when I unwillingly message her saying I just need to talk to you, despite the feeling of ”I’m wasting her time by being a whiner all the time” πŸ˜› So my advice would definitely be: TALK ANYWAY.
    Also, I’m more than willing to talk. I literally find pleasure in people telling me their stories and tragedies and stuff. So please talk.

  3. Getting out your emotions is not wasting anyone’s time. Anyone who cares about your health would be happy to listen. Know you are important enough to be listened to. πŸ™‚

    First of all, your blog can be a great medium to express yourself and then get some pretty unbiased responses (because they are not family members or close friends). That being said, I still think it is very important to develop a close support structure. Anyone that truly cares about you will always make time to listen to what is going on in your life.

    • Haha, sometimes it can be rather tiresome for me too to explain it to someone else, but sometimes, it’s even more exhausting for me if I keep it all to myself. But then there’s this problem ahaha

    I get that way sometimes too. Sometimes you feel like it’s not even worth it to explain the situation because that person may not understand anyway, but at the same time, keeping it inside is hard and frustrating because no matter what you do to try to let it go. Over time, it adds up and weighs you down. I think maybe that’s why I started a blog. Not just because I don’t think some people understand me. I mean, I know my husband does. We’re pretty much on the same page 90% of the time, but more to kind of vent the problem…even if it’s so random that you just know that no one will respond. =P

    • Yeah, I understand that. Ish. People usually understand where I’m coming from, it’s more a matter of whether or not I feel like I’m bothering them. I really don’t like to bother others. But yeah, I understand that need to vent about anything, really πŸ™‚

      • I think the whole ‘bothering people’ is why a couple of my friendships have fizzled. I’m a listener…I’ll listen to anyone all day and half the night, but I just feel like “sometimes” when I really need someone to listen to me, they’re just not there or not interested. So I do get that too…I sort of went on a tangent in my other comment, didn’t I? Lol…
