Hard time coping with feelings - May 30th 2009, 02:02 AM

I keep falling in love, really fast and really hard. I want to set it free, and I want to devote my entire soul and being to some one, I wanna be important to some one and feel that I mean the world to some one. I simply can't bring myself to ask anyone out, since when I fall in love, it's usually some one I hardly know, and it'd just plain be weird to just go ''hey you, i like you even though I don't know your name yet, wanna do something?'' o_O. And me being really shy really doesn't help. I don't know why it bothers me so much now, I just feel like i'm wasting my life away unless everything I'm doing revolves around some one I love.

Over the past few days I've been getting really bummed out over it, to a point where I actually considered suicide, which I haven't in quite a few years.. I've been considering talking to my parents, but they would probably make me see a psychologist, which I don't mind, but nothing a psychologist says can make me feel better, I honestly think getting with some one would be the only thing that would give me a sense of purpose in life.

Hanging out with friends used to make me forget about it, but now I stay depressed whenever i'm around them as well, and they see how down I am but can't really do much about it =/

What to do o_O...

Hi Terry,

welcome to TH! Thanks for sharing what's been going on.

I would say talking to your parents might be a good idea; parents can sometimes be surprisingly helpful. And sometimes it just takes finding the "right" psychologist for you; not all will be as helpful for any one person as others. So don't give up, if you think there's any chance that one might help out.

I understand being shy. But would it feel less intimidating if, instead of worrying about asking someone out right away, you just start off with an ordinary conversation, a "hi, my name's such-and-such, what's yours?" sort of thing? That can help start a connection, and you can always say that you'd like to talk to them some more, keep in touch, however you'd phrase that. As long as you've got a start with friendship, you'll have time to then work up the courage to ask them out.

Hang in there

Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.

Hey Terry,

I understand how you feel. I've been there. But seriously, relationships are over rated. I seriously still kind of feel this way. The song "Somebody to Love" by Queen comes to mind. :P

But don't worry, man. Enjoy being single, too. Being in relationships is great and all, but the aftermath of it ending, and the stress with it is KILLER .
take it easy, man.

hey hun, i know how relationships can make one feel more secure, but truth is, there's no real security in that. it can't really satisfy you. i know how it is that many people seem to have relationships, but that doesn't mean that you need one.
talking to a psychologist can help if you can get one, and don't be afraid to open up coz trust me, that the psychologist probably seen many who face the same problems as you.
takecare and goodluck!

and the voice of truth tells me a different story
the voice of truth says "do not be afraid"
