No one wants to have a conversation or be around someone with an actual sad story.

Unless you pay a “professional”, nobody with their own life is gonna listen to my shit.

Sometimes I can’t believe it ended up this way. It’s been hard to let go. I don’t know how, I’m so used to trying to hold on to whatever is left. Whatever fucking scraps people gave. It’s my own fault I guess. I’ll never be more than a trash can. Maybe Oscar needs a friend.

I have always felt that way and sometimes i don't think even professionals want to listen. I once had to go in to detail about my therapist response was..."I am surprised that you haven't killed yourself " ...well doc it wasn't from a lack of trying.

My dad used to take time to listen to complete strangers. Many told him that 10 minutes saved their lives
@LilPrincess I once had a therapist that kept looking at her phone during conversations. I had two before her that scared me off.

i figure people are like volcanos
you either vent or explode

you have a kid so you can't explode

so you vent.

wonder if there might be some support groups in your area?

somebody that's been through your particular brand of hell might be a better listener?

@Pretzel Not in this area unfortunately. I know it will get a lot better once we’re moved. Once we’re settled somewhere we can make some real friends. That’s what we really need 🖤

I have been reading and following your grief. It will look better tomorrow, i promise

@CopperFox420 your heart is heavy from sadness put upon you.
Tomorrow is another day, enjoy the sunrise and feel its warmth. Hopefully you will see it and even though the heart hurts, there will be a glimmer of relief in that sunshine

@ronisme1 It just has to wait till I’m done cleaning up this mess and closing all the doors. A relief would be a hand held out to help, not take. It just can’t be rn. It’s okay. I think.

@CopperFox420 a helping hand i dont have but a heartful thought and praise for you i do. I send you my positive thoughts for you

The thing is that some people don’t share their problems and don’t talk about it and when others start telling theirs it gets overwhelming to think or talk about.
I can hardly tell anyone about my grief. I didn’t have death in the family but my life has been extremely sad. I’m sorry you’re feeling that way. I hope life becomes brighter for you.

I'm feeling the same way.
