It’s cool that you decided to try the forum, despite your caution about writing about yourself. We’ll certainly never tell you that you shouldn’t write here because “people have it worse in other places”. We believe that everyone’s feelings are legitimate and real, and VERY meaningful to them, regardless of how they might look to anybody else. Who would I be to tell you how meaningful your feelings are compared to anyone else’?
I get the sense, from your words, Rosie98, that you’re feeling lost in the hubbub and anger around you. It sounds like your home life is filled with tension, and you don’t have many people to turn to outside of your family. I’m picturing you clinging to a rock in the middle of a rushing river, trying hard not to get swept away by the chaos around you. That panicky feeling that nobody cares, and everyone is too occupied with their own rush to notice you and really care…
It sounds like you’ve felt disappointment so often, and been brushed aside by so many people, that you purposely set your expectations really low so that you don’t have to feel that way again. I’m sorry to hear that the people around you leave you hurting and lonely time and time again. I wonder if it leaves you questioning whether you are even worth their time?
I’m glad that you tried out the chat AND that you wrote here. We’re here to listen to whatever is going on for you.
