    No one in real life cares about or seems to respect my opinion. Deep down, I think I have always known that is the case but recently I have experienced it firsthand.

    ^This...now more than ever. I got a pretty harsh lecture and a strong sentiment of disapproval because I have a different view/descision on something than the person who lectured me on it. Quite disheartening that I am not allowed to question and think differently without being judged on it by people I am supposed to trust wholeheartedly.

    I used to trust people but I was so naive and the betrayal is something ive never moved on from and ruined my trust in everyone. Last year I meet someone new and I overshared way to much about myself because I was trying to trust her and make friends with her, but it blew up and thats the last time I try and trust again 😕 

    I do the same, I reach out to people I care about but they dont reach out to me. They're kind and friendly over text but not to my face, I dont understand people, I dont understand why im always the one left out and not liked and blah, what's even the point in trying anymore im so tired of trying. 

    wanna have a virtual glass of whatever and toast to not trusting and being used and betrayed and sad? "cheers"

    anyone else wanna join in the cheers?

    I can relate. The amount of people I trust I can count on one hand. And even those I do trust...it is not 100%. I’m cynical and I question everything. And by everything, I mean everything! Not ideal I know, but getting burned one too many times and realizing that most things aren’t what they seem is better than  blind trust in my opinion.

    Feeling low and pretty down. I don’t drive and I need to do some errands but my family members who would take me don’t seem interested and I have learned it is better for them to offer or to go when they need to go out than for me to ask as when I do, I usually get excuses or less than enthusiatic response.

  3. I had to switch therapists not too long ago (not by my choice) as my therapist who I really liked working with moved away. I stayed with the same group and they just assigned me to someone else. It was a bit awkward at first, especially since the appointments are not in person and on video chat, which I don’t particularly like, but now I feel comfortable with him. The first few sessions were lots of questions and somewhat uncomfortable but helpful in the long run as it determined how future sessions would go and what to discuss, for me anyway. Also, been in situations in the past where I knew right off it wasn’t going to work..I tried to stick with it and it made me feel worse. 

    Therapy can be tough and feel pointless at times but not certain I would have made it through the past year or so without it. Especially at the start, I was a wreck and my therapist was the only one I felt comfortable venting to.

    Good luck to you!

  4. Less than thrilled with my job right now...going to do the bear minimum required of me. Being helpful and trying to reach out isn’t worth it, gets you nowhere and is more of a hassle than a help lately. I’ve got to start looking elsewhere.

  5. Concerned about where things might be headed. I struggle immensely with making descisions of any kind really...even deciding what I want for dinner can be a dilemma at times. Something far bigger than that is likely going to be a pressing matter I need to decide on much sooner than I thought. I am nowhere near ready to make a descision but circumstances may force me to and I cannot handle that.

  6. Annoyed that I don’t have the proper access to get the info I need (been asking about it for a long time) and have to rely on others to get me the info. Mostly my boss who sends it to me but occasionally have to ask a co-worker who is the only other one with the proper access. She knows what I need yet sent me the wrong info and I emailed her asking for clarifcation and she didn’t respond back. My boss isn’t real timely on responding either. Seems to be a trait in the company.
