Mentally preparing myself for a life lecture?
Ok so I haven't had one in awhile and for some reason I feel like one is coming soon. This is something I dread everyday. I'm told that my life is going nowhere and everything negative is surfaced and rubbed in. These lectures are done w/the best intentions, but they are very detrimental for me. I am told the non sugarcoated truth, which yes people do need in life, but many times I feel like things are exaggerated. For example once I was told that I was "letting" myself go weight wise. At that time I was stressing over finals and and going through my 1st break up. I had lost my appetite (this happens when I'm nervous or upset) and I actually lost weight, plus I had been that constant weight. At the end I just feel numb and I sit there w/my mind blank. Believe if these lectures helped me I wouldn't be complaining. I never express the hurt from these lectures (I once did and it was answered by another lecture) and they think that I don't care. How can I mentally prepare?
