I'm distancing myself... - June 29th 2010, 03:39 PM

From any help that is potentially there.
I don't feel interested.
Its like I'm trying to hide myself away again.
I want people to forget me, so it will be easier for them to move on?
Gah...everything is so complicated and hard...

I'm sorry about you for feeling this way, but not everything is lost, you know you have a whole life and there'll be bad times, like now I guess, but you should give more importance to good things, even if they are just simple stuff.
People who love you won't forget you that easily, they care about you. Instad of wondering 'would they forget me?' think about asking them for help, they'll be willing to do anything for you, because you worth it.
If you need to talk, here I am.
All the best xx

Yes, it may feel easier to not reach out for help. But you know that's not the right thing to do. People won't forget you and move on no matter how much you want them to so you gotta turn that around and embrace the people who love you. Don't stop reaching out for help, keep letting people know how you feel. Don't give up on yourself. Faith in yourself can keep you going forever.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

I'm sorry you're feeling like you have to do this.. I know I've done the same when really low.

I guess the fact you've posted about it shows you know it's not a 'good' thing to be doing really.. not that that makes it any easier!

What do you think you're getting out of it? It can be hard to believe anyone can help but they really can, it does help to have people there.. it makes it easier to pick yourself up again even when you don't think you can. I don't think that anyone will just forget about you; they care, and they are more likely to just be frustrated and concerned that you're not letting anyone help you.

Could you try taking some small steps? Is there anyone you can let in a bit - even just, to start with, maybe explaining about feeling you have to push help away?

Good luck, I hope things get better for you.
