I am in this same boat, but with me it is usually the "stinkin thinkin" and let what others say and do hurt my feelings when I know that some people just are not the warm and caring type. I set my expectations of an event to high and then I have set my self up for a fall.
I am going to stop this behavior and start to learn to buffer myself by just taking life as it comes. Somedays are just better then others.

Good Morning. I am glad you are seeing your counselor on Friday..........and yes do speak up about your issues. Good for you, your being an advocate for yourself.
