I Listen More Than I Talk...

I listen to my boyfriend's problems, I listen to my daughter's (all 3 of them) problems, I listen to my parent's problems and on and on and on..... The problem is when I have something I need to talk about there is no one there to listen...so I have to rely on my journal and my stories here on EP.....Sometimes I just want to scream WHEN IS SOMEONE GOING TO LISTEN TO ME????????    Ok I feel better now.....Thanks for letting me vent.......

I'm the same way as well. I'm always there for others. I think we are a rare breed and we need to find others like our self so that we can be there for each other. But I also think there is another part to our problem (or at least mine). I make myself too available for others and have a hard time setting boundaries. I also never ask for help (probably out of fear of being judged or rejected).

Ugh I feel ya there. I feel like I listen to everyone else but then when I have a problem all I get is judgement and stupid comments "OH everyone feels like that" and BS like that. I have so much sympathy and empathy for others these days I can't watch the news anymore it leaves me broken hearted.....<br />

It's nice to know there are others like me out there.

I once thought of getting into something like that too. because I had the very same thought, but I never got the chance. I would do it now but I am to busy to go back to school.
