I know that talking about issues is a great healing process and makes you feel less isolated which lessens anxiety and the issue.... but since the wolrd is so diverse and therefore so are our issues how does one reach out in a world where people have a limited way of thinking and understanding? i suppose there are people who are comapssionate and are there to listen.
im finding it difficult because im an open and honest person, and i will talk about my probelms to be free from it but, in the past year ive dealt with a bizarre anxiety issue and to me i see the logic and ive done pretty well dealing with it on my own, ive gotten better to the point where i almost feel free, but the one thing i feel is keeping me back is that i havent spoken about any of it and i would just like to have that option without feeling embarressed or judged, i still get my bad days where i feel like winging about it to someone but i dont know who i would talk to, i find it so unfair because the issue is not something the average person could relate to, u just dont really hear ppls bizarre probs. i could carry on the way i have, but its really damaging to me to not being to express myself, who do i talk to, i wish it was just easier to talk about thats all, and i hope that there are other ways of releasing this emotionally, all i want is someone to care, and listen and not judge and accept me for who iam and have a better level of undertsnading. its what would set me free. i have no support, i have one good friend at the moment but ive only known her a short while, i really want to set myself free, if i could have one person to talk to who would understand it would literally save my life.

Good Evening,

I have a therapist that I can talk to who also helps me see things in a better light. When I am feeling overly sensitive and feel people "don't understand or care" I am often reminded that I am taking comments or situations to personal. Together we have identified my weak areas that I need to work on.

A therapist is there just for you.

I do not know if you have access to a therapist but hope you do.

yes iam looking into it, i guess the feeling of not being able to talk to friends and feeling like you have to pretend in some way or other is hard i dont know, i suppose I'll have to do the therapist thing and take it from there. :)
