Its Sad

I  have noone to talk to, I mean REALLY talk to. My  Bestfriend has the biggest mouth in town and my other friends i don't trust enough. I find it hard to open up and  talk  about my feelings. How can  i overcome my fear of opening up????

Hello, I'm new to this site and was just going through stories here. Yours caused me to stop and respond. What you wrote made sense to me in that you say you are not confiding in people because you don't feel you can trust them with deeper things. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you or that you should necessarily try to force yourself to open up. Through the years of my life so far I've been amazed at some of the deeply personal issues some people will just throw out there in front of anyone and then wonder why they're not getting a supportive response. Not everyone is worthy of your trust, so being selective that way does not mean there is a problem with you....but sometimes finding people who are worthy of the investment of our trust seems to take too long and we end up feeling lonely. I am cautious this way as well, and I end up feeling lonely at times because of it--and I'm a lot older than you :) But over time I've met a few people here and there who are worthy of my trust, and it is mutual. Hang in there; and if you care to please feel free to drop me a line. All the best to you!
