Please Will Someone Listen

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

I'VE HAD A OK LIFE ALOT OF CONFLICT BUT I WAS RAISED BY A LOVING FAMILY. I'VE NEVER BEEN THE ONE THAT GOT ATTENTION,OR ANY KIND OF PRAISE SO I KINDA GOT USE TO BEING MISTREATED. I ALWAYS ALLOWED MY FEELINGS TO BE HURT AND NO ONE SEEMED TO BE SORRY FOR IT. BUT NOW I JUST GOT THIS FEELING IN ME THAT I'M TIRED AFTER 40YRS. AND I JUST CAN'T STOP LASHING OUT (BUT ONLY WHEN I'M BOTHERED) BUT I REALLY DON'T LIKE THAT PERSON. NOW I'M BEING LABELED AS A MEAN PERSON , AND EVERYTHING IS MY FOUGHT. I ALLOW THINGS OVER THE YEARS TO GET ME TO WHERE NOW I'M DEALING WITH DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. I'VE BEEN HOSPITALIZED FOR MY DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY SERVAL TIMES, BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE, MY LOVED ONES DON'T TAKE IT SERIOUS. I'M REALLY GLAD I CAME ACROSS THIS SITE BECAUSE THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING FOR WHAT I NEED ADVICE FOR..PLEASE SOME ONE LISTEN!!!!

You need to be in counseling. You are allowing the actions of others to fester inside, rather than coming out at the time and expressing your feelings. If you would handle each situation as it arises, instead of holding it all in until you lash out at everyone, you'd feel better, and others would be more willing to listen to you.

(I might add that typing in ALL CAPS is considered to be yelling...and many won't respond to that either ;-) )

If you have people in your life that are nothing but negative, get rid of them. If your family won't listen when you rant, try calming down and speaking individually with them. Don't make it about a pity party, but about getting support from family and friends.

Good luck

Sooo sorry I didn't see where the caps was on. Believe me I'm not yelling it's more like a cry . I'm a very low spoken person and I do allow things to build but I just don't know how to take up for myself except when they just build and yes I conduct my emotions wrong. I always walk away from things I hate confrontations and that's the problem I have a lot of unfinished business where I just walk away. But you're right I have to start confronting at site, and me wanting or desiring pity is not what I'm aiming for I just want to be heard and respected the same as I do and give others, so please don't think that's what I'm about. Thank you soo much. It felt soo great not good but great for someone to just listen even if you're the only reply.
