Help? - March 3rd 2011, 02:38 AM

Ok so its been awhile since I've been on here. I'm a very private person and haven't told a single sole anything I've been doing/feeling for the past 6 years. So my question to anyone who's willing to listen and respond is: how did you manage to open up on here and/or to friends/family? Every time I even attempt to really let someone know what's going on-even if its on here where I dont know anyone-I feel like throwing up and crying. I would really appreciate any insight that you may have. Thanks for listening.

I am very much the same, seriously. I have trust issues so it took a lot to open up on here for me. but i just realised that this site has high anonymity so i was safe from people i know finding out, and that people on here dont judge you, they try to help. at first i told a tiny snippet of my story and eventually i found that i could openly address my problems and emotions without fear.

im here if you need me

"Do not regret anything. Every choice, fuck up, spoken word, experience and emotion has brought you to this very moment. It has shaped exactly who you are. Do not regret who you are. You are unique. No one in the world is like you. In this sense, we are alone. Yet for this very reason, we all have one thing in common. Don't waste who you are, be everything you can be. You can achieve your dreams, you just have to genuinely try."

I had a serious problem with this for a very very long time, and on occasions, I still do.

What I found was that there was a lot of things in myself that I repressed that led to it. When you are troubled, and in times when you need the most help, it isn't found, or nobody wants to listen, or they think you're abnormal. Or they just don't like being associated with people like that.

First, you need to confront your feelings. You need to realize what your feeling. Tell yourself what you're feeling and why you feel these emotions.

I agree, this site ensures anonymity. So if you feel you can't talk about it, type it out. Whenever you anything coming up, you can post, and when you post, you get replies, so that way, you find ways of figuring out problems or coping with them. This makes you feel more confident and open up more.

Hope that helped! Take care

Racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind.
Flying? There were times I believed I could."
