Just Someone To Talk To...

Not necessarily provide me with answers, but just listen and not judge. Not tell me to 'cheer up' or say 'aww'. Not even necessarily to understand why I feel as low and helpless as I do because that's something I don't understand myself...

Just someone to talk to who doesn't have preconceptions, who is happy to listen and not make me feel guilty or uncomfortable for finding life a never-ending battle.

Just someone who is happy to chat nonsense, or seriously. Even just sit in silence and watch the world go by for a bit but without feeling uncomfortable and awkward.

I cannot find this anywhere. Friends, family try to help but they end up making me feel a bit guilty for telling them that I'm feeling low, or giving me advice that isn't that helpful, or scowling as I talk and confirming my worst fears about myself. All through no fault of their own, they can't help it, they don't mean to. But they've not tried living with themselves when they cannot abide their own company.

Sometimes it is just not possible to feel good. No matter what happens or who is around my mood is down and nothing is going to fix it. It doesn't matter what I do I still feel like crap. I've found that isolating myself isn't helping. I'm trying to get out of the house more and do some new things. So far I guess I haven't put enough effort into it because I'm still floundering.

Oh I know how you feel. Life sometimes isn't so rosy. But we deal with it. I think we all need someone to listen. Please take care Peace and smiles to you

I can listen. Although no guarantees I'll be any help.

Sorry, I'm new to this website, how do I talk to you???
