I think I can hear how lost you feel to be alone with thoughts that seem out of control and frightening in their persistence. It seems like the feelings take you on such a wild ride that you doubt whether anyone could ever truly understand what it feels like. And the truth is that it *is* difficult for any one human being to understand what another is going through. That’s why we encourage people to talk about things — besides just helping you sort out your own thoughts, it can help us get a little bit closer to understanding the pain, the confusion that you are experiencing. <img src="smileys/heart.gif" width="" height="" alt="<3" title="
From your words, I can hear that you are so uncertain about your own purpose and place in the world. What are some of the thoughts and feelings that are coming up for you when you talk about that?
I can hear how it’s a stretch of imagination to think that anyone might care about your safety if you yourself have trouble caring sometimes. Please know that we do care, and that we are here to support you when you feel like you’re lost.
