I am having a very hard time right now with just everything in my life. I am unable to express my true feelings to anyone, even those I trust most. People often have high expectations of me because of what I have done in my past but, for me, it is very overbearing. I feel like I am drowning right now financially, emotionally and more and I can’t let anyone know cause if I do I’ll let them all down and if I let them down I am a complete and total failure. I am struggling with the loss of several of my close relatives and I am on the verge of tears constantly though no one seems to notice. Furthermore, anytime I even try to say anything to anyone this subject or otherwise they cut me off, change the subject, or ignore me completely. I’m just really struggling right now.
Hi, thank you so much for sharing your feelings here. I am here to listen to you about whatever you want to discuss. Is there a reason for you not being able to express your true feelings? Do you feel they will judge you or make you feel bad? If that’s the case, I am sure it’s not true because those people are close to you and care about you and will always want the best for you. Give them a chance. Give someone a chance to lend you a helping hand. Confide in someone.
Nobody will make you feel like a failure, people will support you, give them a chance. And even if they do, you need to know what is right for you and what is not. You need to do what’s correct for you. You are not a failure. You’re just learning and experiencing life. Fall down seven, stand up eight.
