I Always Feel Like I Bother People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 7,402 People

    When I try to spend time with my friends it

    feels that they spend more time their phones then with me. And when other people are around they actually put their phones down and have some fun... without me.

    Whenever somebody asks "are you okay?

    " or "whats wrong?" I try not to tell them whats bothering me cause i dont want to seem burdensome. If i do tell them they think im lying just to get attention. i promise i dont lie.

    Whether it's texting,

    messaging on EP, email, phone call, I get so stressed out wondering if I am bothering people. I will compulsively keep checking messages, wait by the phone, and sometimes get so distracted I do nothing the entire day but worry if my message was bothering the person, wondering if...

    It's A Part Of Me

    I struggle with this greatly, and I think it's a part of my inadequacy with everyone around me. I am always afraid to make the first contact with someone, to phone them, or email or message....because then they are obligated to say hi back, and maybe even talk, when I don't...

    I dont stay in touch with loved ones

    as much as I should, or like to. Its an odd feeling to miss people so much but not reach out at the expense of possibly being an annoyance.

    I don"t know it just feels like I bother

    everyone I talk to. I even feel like I bother my boyfriend sometimes. But I guess he likes to be bothered by me.

    I always feel like a nuisance to people,

    but it's refreshing when I occasionally find someone who finds my jokes hilarious. Someone who wouldn't mind getting drunk with me and watching Netflix until we fall asleep. Someone who will give me the boost of confidence I need when I'm scared. Someone who listens to me vent...

    I feel like I don't belong.

    Like I'm different then the ppl I'm around and no one ever understands and I'm incapable of a right explication for it but I feel as if my difference is my fault and why no one seems to get me, or think I'm "weird"..heh. Thanks for reading:p

    Since I'm not what people stereotype me to be,

    I often feel as though I bother them by simply existing. One of my many corks is that I always feel like I'm in someone's way. I always let others have the right of way because I don't feel like they should be subjected to try and maneuver around me. If someone is walking...

    I'm sorry when you take long to reply, I get sad. I'm sorry if I say things that might annoy you. I'm sorry if I come off as annoying. I'm sorry if you don't want to talk to me as much as I want to talk to you. I'm sorry if I think about you too much and too often. I'm sorry if...

    and I can usually, "take a hint". So, what I don't understand is why people say that I am not bothering them, but it seems that their actions show differently. Don't act like you want to be my friend if you are just trying to be nice. No one is perfect, but the...

    I think I bottle things up to the point

    where I explode and start ranting to people about things that make me angry. So then I try to bottle it back up and not say anything. Well the cycle repeats and, obviously, doing the same thing and expecting different results is insanity. So I guess I'll post around here some...

    I do bother people. I feel like sometimes

    people only talk to me because it's something to do. I end up becoming atleast in my eyes an obligation or a burden in some way. I try to be patient and for the most part I am but I just feel like people are starting to hate me

    when you text someone,

    they don't reply, so a few hours later you text them again and feel bothersome because they probably didn't want to talk to you. Or someone acts completely different around other people than you and you wonder if they are being fake and not really that happy to be around you...
