Hi everyone its Frangepani here
I haven't been on the forums for too long but in the time I have been I've found a lot of really kind people who are very honest and open, sharing their experiences, helping me feel connected and heard. I hope you too can find the connections you're looking for on here. It's so important to feel connected and understood!
Hello Frangepani, feeling hopeless is the reason why some sort of depression creates physical pain and if we try and disguise this by being empathic to somebody, then sometimes it's not taken as genuine, this can make us feel more aloof.
Being in this situation doesn't make us feel well and no one wants to be ostracised, but that won't happen here, many of us have been in this exact situation and only want to help those suffering from it.
Hello Frangepani, unfortunately, you can try your hardest to please people but when they interpret what you've said into how they are thinking and are unable to change, then there's not much you can do, only hope they are able to understand what you're saying and come to terms with it.
This doesn't always happen and when any power to voice your view is taken away from you when you're young, it does great strength to finally build it up again to feel some confidence.
You are welcome here to have your say, without any judgement.
All the very best and hope to hear from you.
