No one cares - April 23rd 2013, 05:07 AM

So I let people in a little. But more than I useually do and it did nothing. They don't care any more than anyone else. I didn't show up for stuff for like 2 weeks- they didn't care even though they knew I was hurting. They'd rather be surrounded by fun happy outgoing people. That's just not me. They didnt notice I was gone for 2 weeks. They wouldn't notice if I was permanently gone. They don't care I cut. They don't care I attempted to reach out. I just want someone to care. But they don't.

That is the case with most people -- they just do not care. Not because they flat out do not care, but because they believe they cannot do anything to help you. It could be that, or they just do not want to get mixed up with your situation. It could be something completely different.

I have always lived by this rule: Do not expect anything from anyone. When you start expecting people to care or do anything for you, you are handing out invitations to have your feelings hurt. Help others out, do things for them without expecting anything in return. The gift of giving is much more rewarding. Yes, if they care and start doing you favors, great. But do not get swept away by the notion that they will continue to do that with you.

I do not know who you are. But I am (hopefully) helping you get over your problem without expecting anything in return. I hope you understand where I am going with this, and start trying to do the same.

If you wish to talk privately, feel free to shoot me a message. Good luck!

I'm sorry about this. I know exactly how you feel. When I open up I usually end up getting hurt and feeling like people don't care. But that's not true. People around you love you, if they didn't care and love you then they wouldn't be around you other times. It's just that sometimes when you open up to people, they don't know how to help you or they react in a bad way because they're scared/worried about you and sometimes it usually sends out a message that they don't care.

You are loved. I'm always here if you need someone to listen as well. Don't forget that.

Stay Strong <3
