moving away - March 12th 2010, 01:40 AM

i dont know if this is the right place to type this
but i tend to have a habit of moving away from people when they get close
physically and emotionally
and i keep thinking it might be from my disorders?
but i dont think thats the full reason.
any thoughts?

Hey there. I'm going to go ahead and move this to Mental Health as I think you will get more responses there.

There are a lot of reasons you could be pushing people away. It could be from any disorders you have, but it could also just be a part of your personality or a way to protect yourself. Some people are afraid of getting too close or letting others in because it makes them vulnerable. Whatever the reason is though, it's definitely something you can work through. Talk to people about it. When you start getting close to someone tell them you have a habit of pushing people away. Those that care about you will stick around until you quit pushing.

It also might be a good idea to talk to a therapist about this. They can help you figure out what is causing you to do this and find ways to help you stop pushing people away.

but just being right where you are, who you are"

Hey Ariella,
Beautiful name by the way.
Emily has addressed this nicely. It may be from your disorders, but it also just may be a part of who you are as a person.
People tend to do this for many reasons, it could be to protect themselves, or maybe they are afraid of repeating something that happened in the past, maybe they don't want to feel vulnerable, or don't want to be taken advantage of. There are a wide variety of reasons indeed.
As Emily suggested, it would be wise to perhaps talk to a therapist about this. Maybe if you talk to someone about it, together you can try to figure out why you do this, and maybe try to fix it, if that's what you would like.
If you don't feel comfortable talking with a therapist, maybe just talk to a friend or someone you seem to trust the most about this. If it's something you want to fix about yourself, it's probably best to talk to someone about. it.
I hope this helped. Good luck, and take care of yourself.
