Hello

Looking for friends who understand my condition . I say stupid things and assume a lot. People don’t like me because I’m protective of my mind.

I tend to react very strongly when it comes to emotions and it makes it hard to stay in a relationship. Not exactly the same thing but I think I do understand what you mean. Finding people who understand is exactly why I got on here too

Yeah, I’ve been engaged for almost two years and I can’t depend on him for everything I’m trying to find people who can relate so he doesn’t feel like it’s all his fault

I am trying to understand what you mean by protective of your mind?

I don’t like to share feelings and I like to protect my feelings

I understand now. Thank you for explaining. I think it’s a smart strategy to have. You got to be discreet with whom you trust with stuff.

I had a rough childhood. So I never trusted anyone
