I Avoid So Much.

I avoid so many things.  I certainly avoid conflicts.  I avoid any situation when someone is depressed, being a depressed person myself, I really have a hard time because I never know what to say to people.  I feel guilty about it, but I don't want to talk to the person out of fear that I am going to make their depression worse.

I avoid awkward situations, such as talking on the phone with somene who I don't know what to say to. 

I avoid telling people what I am really thinking/feeling.

Andrew penny is a juwel among people. He is much wiser than most anyone I know. I have disagreed with him but it has been few and fay between. He is like nudeinva, a very wise man.

Thank you Meg. I have been working on it, alot. Especially when it comes to talking about my feelings. Andrew helps out so much with that.

Facing the things that you fear may teach you just how much better things can be if you let go of it. don't be afraid, take hold of the life you were given and live it!! Face your fears and be grateful :-)

Thanks mewold =D

As far as depression goes, I was depressed for years until the dr's finally found the right meds. Now I'm ok. Don't avoid people here, sometimes they have a problem and you have the answer. Sometimes they just need someone to listen and tell them it will be ok. Sometimes there is some really good **** going on and it is fun to get into the middle of it. Be a part of EP. Jump in there.

Thank you =]

If you ever learn anything from me, it's that avoiding the issue only pushes it further. Make the confrontation, and whatever choice you make, it will be the right one.
