Just venting.......

Do you ever feel like you just don't connect with other humans? Like you are on a higher level than most people and people just don't understand you? I often feel like people just don't get me. Like, they don't really care what I have to say. It's kind of hard to explain what I feel , here on a message board, I guess. I try to be a positive and happy person but it is hard to be strong all the time. No one ever asks me how I am doing and what they can do to help me. It is always people asking me to do for them. Once in a while, I need someone to reach out and just tell me ITS OKAY.....I don't have hardly anyone close to me (other than my family) and, while I am okay with that most times, there are times where I would like a friend or two to listen to me and just give me a hug or just be there for me. Just having a rough couple of days, feeling alone.....

Wow!! I can totally relate. I find it hard to get along with people my own age especially. I’m just not into what others are into. I too long for meaningful conversation and to be heard because I don’t talk just to talk. I say what I mean and I mean what I say. Im here if you ever want to talk. I’d love to develop a good report with a fellow like minded cat lover👍🏽

Thank you. All these years, I was beginning to think it was just me and that I was the odd ball. I, too, and very truthful when I talk. I don't like to sugarcoat things. I'm just tired of feeling alone and that I don't really matter. So, yes it would be great to have a conversation, as well......And cats are awesome. My fur baby is almost 15 and fighting cancer. She's doing good so far (but she's pissed at me because I have to give her meds 2xs a day).

That's my cat...she has a huge attitude. LOL. But usually sweet and loving with me..Unless it is time for her meds...lol

Yes I get tired of constantly having to explain myself and what I mean every time I have a conversation!!! Sometimes it’s just less stressful for me to be at home with my cats and birds and fish it’s always been that way for me!

Hi I understand what you mean. Why not follow other friends examples and ask for help if you need it? I think sometimes we expect others to be mind readers and know how we feel without telling them. Not saying you do this but it is common.

Or maybe you don't feel your needs are as important as others? x

It's both...I hate asking for help and I think that people usually come to me for help and, so, when I ask for help...they just ignore me or turn me away because I am always the strong one...not the one that needs something. Almost as if , you are right, I don't matter.

You do matter at least as much as others do. I have a friend who has always been the strong one and she told me people treated her like they do you. She got fed up with it in the end and started letting herself be seen as weak sometimes. She said it was such a weight off her shoulders and is happier for it. x

Yes, you are right and so is your friend. I guess , at some point, that is what I will have to do as well. Just a matter of taking that step. It's difficult when you have always been the "Strong" one.

That is nice that you have a family, maybe it's okay to accept that for now. I have learned over the years that some times people with whom I felt I did not have much in common - actually have more than I realized- . I am kind of an odd ball myself, and also an animal lover. Animals rock, and often read us and our moods. Hey, we're all human- and it's okay to be alone sometimes, also. Hope that made sense- I am kind of tired today.
