Is there anyone here whom I can talk with, I'm used to being alone but it feels like my chest is about to explode. I tried to reach out to the few friends I have but they were always joking at me.

Someone who can bare with me, I have trouble communicating to others due to the way I grew up and experiences. I don't even know how to start a good conversation.

I would be happy to listen to anything you have to get off your chest. Just message me :)

It IS hard to know how to start. I always imagine that no one is interested in me. But when I make the effort sometimes I am surprised. I start small, with strangers, like when I am standing in line at the store or the post office. Even if it is just a 20 second conversation it can brighten my day and make things look different. It helps to validate me as a person to have these micro talks with strangers. Sometimes people you know are harder since they have certain expectations or already have the whole relationship dynamic with you frozen in their mind and it's hard to thaw it out and remake it into something more rewarding. You are not alone!
