Rendered Distance - Or Scapegoat?

Is there anyone else out there who feels distanced from life and you think it might be because of experiences you've had for which you got no sympathy or understanding.?

Thats how I feel a lot of the time.  Like something bad will happen and someone will say, "It's not about you" etc etc. I mean even if it isn't about me personally, it doesn't mean I don't feel it. You can't switch off your feelings whenever you choose, just like you can't close your ears when you don't want to hear something. I bet if my Dad died someone would say: @What's wrong with you, stop feeling sorry for yourself"

I bet someone is even thinking right now, "get a life, you loser."

Now I am calmer about it. Its good to get it off the chest though cos if you keep it inside its a bit like a pressure cooker, I might explode. The other way is i suppose trying to understand. Here's what I think..<br />
The person/people who says those things are the ones who have the real problem and they're just passing their problem on to you/me instead of dealing with it themselves. Like I mean, I am sympathetic to other people but I do also need sympathy. We're all the same but some people think they're better than others. Not me! And proud of it.
