No Pity, Please

Maybe I can write this here without feeling like I am having one big fat pity party for myself. I struggle every day , with poverty, panic attacks, insomnia, pain from within. As a child I was bused, neglected, overlooked, ignored (even when I tried to commit suicide at age16), and it only got worse when I got older and went from one bad relationship to another until I ended up in one that nearly killed me.

I don't always want advice. But neither do I want pity. I know others go through worse, but does that make me any less qualified for simple empathy and understanding?

Having someone say they empathize can go a long way in the healing process. It makes you feel so much less alone, and I have felt alone my whole life.
