breakdown. - April 30th 2016, 05:56 PM

Every time I say I'm happy, or I'm fine I feel like breaking into tears.
I don't know why. I don't get.
I don't even feel like overly depressed all of the time.
I know that there are things I wish were different, but it's life.
I have a loving partner, a roof over my head and a good job, and great friends.
Though recently I want to reconnect with old college friends, I just don't know how. Some of us didn't leave on the best terms, and I want to apologize and see where it goes. But some I haven't even talked to in years.

My partner and I also have a group we hang out with from church. There are some of them I would consider talking about this with. But the issue is, I have always been more comfortable talking with guys. This group is pretty conservative (I'm very liberal, so it's weird) and they have the mindset that people in relationships shouldn't hang out or have deep talks with people of the opposite gender. The thing is, I can respect the couples who think that and not talk to the guys in relationships/marriages. But there is one person, and I feel like I could talk to him but I don't know what he would say because I'm in a relationship.....and there's also one couple, I wouldn't mind opening up to, but I don't know how to stat that conversation.

I also don't even know how to tell people who are the closest to me, like my partner. And when I do finally tell people, I want to tell him too, since he's the one I want to be with forever. But I want to tell everyone on else on my own. Is that odd? Should I want to bring my parnter with me? I feel like an awful girlfriend sometimes for having these thoughts.

Welcome

I think you just think too much about whatever happens, and there's people of all kinds of people in this world..... you're certainly not an awful girlfriend, and I'm pretty sure that you're a considerate person who cares for others. That's already more than enough because its the thought that counts. The point is: You're who you are, and if you're liberal and open, that makes you a really awesome person to hang out with because you won't get offended and you're open when it comes to thoughts and feelings.. which is a definite plus in everyone's book.

As for you, I think it's better for you to bring your partner around when you talk about it at first, but later on you'll be more comfortable telling people by yourself because it's something you'll eventually have to deal with: But in the end.. what matters is that you consider other people's feelings, and you take them to heart. That's better than what some people can say about themselves because what they think about is only their own feelings and nobody else's.I think that whatever you choose, just make sure that to be careful about what you say so that it won't hurt anyone else.. but you're a caring person, so you'll definitely be okay when it comes to that kind of stuff.

Perhaps it would be best to apologize to your college friends and see where it goes... the ones who're kind will accept it, the ones who're less considerate will still hold grudges, but there's nothing much we can do when some people don't really think about things in a mild way and look at things in a better light.

I can tell you that things will definitely be okay: You just need to move on.. and not think too much about whether stuff is your fault. All you need to do is to consider how your actions impact other people : If you're already doing that and you're a nice person, you're most certainly a very good person already.

I hope I helped, and if you need any more advice or just want someone to rant to.. I'll always be around!


It's called a tunnel because there's ALWAYS a light at the end.



rant to me if there's anything!
