I’m so confused, and I can never open up to anyone.
There’s so much going on, and I can’t talk to anyone without thinking I’m annoying them, or they think I’m an attention seeker, and well, it just hurts so much to talk about stuff, but I think I’m gonna explode if I don’t. what do I do???
I totally get what you're going through. But if someone really cares for you, they will never think you're annoying or attention seeking. What you need to do is find that one person that accepts you for everything that you are, whether that be a family member, a friends, whatever. It's impossible to hold everything in like that, so don't feel helpless or alone. And even if you can't find that one person, there's always someone out there. Have you tried talking to your parents/guardians/siblings? And don't forget, you can always vent on here :)
Honey, you aren't alone. We're here for you. That is why we have answered, because for us, something in your post resonated with us, it reminded us of tough times we endured and it made us want to be there for you, to give back. If you don't want to talk about it publically, and want to IM me to talk about this, I'd be happy to listen. It wouldn't be live but we could email back and forth. But the advice above is good advice, besides us, you should think about, who in your life do you trust? Who is someone who is a good person and cares about you, that you could confide in? An Aunt/Uncle? A family friend? The pastor? A sibling? There must be someone in your life you can trust this with.Good luck my dear, you are NOT alone.
Honey i have the same problem too, i always think that open up to my friends/family will make me sound like an attention seeker or just pathetic but i hit that very point when i just have to talk to someone so i man up and talk to one of my friend and it turn out to be that they're very supporting and i feel so relieved. maybe you should tell somoene or it'll eat you up inside. its not good. if you cant find a friend you can always talk to me! sometimes talking to strangers help ease up your pain a little bit. good luck!
Thank you so much, both of you, but I don't know, I don't have many friends, and I definitely can't tell my mother, so.. but it's nice to know there's people out there who care enough to stop and answer it, really <3 it means a lot
