Im sorry to hear youre going through that right now. I hope you dont dispair. There is a shortage of love in this world i think. But youll be alright and can make a difference and change that for others.
I have four friends that I’ve had for quite a long time. My two female friends I feel I can talk to about just about everything, but I don’t reach out to them, except if we meet in person we might talk a little about my mental problems. I will reach out to family if I’m in trouble. But come think of it I don’t really reach out much to anyone, except here. I think this forum is a very good place to talk about mental stuff because people know what I’m talking about.
I hate to put it this way, but lowering my old standards and expectations for friendship has actually helped me make more friends. I used to be kind of snobby about friends, but now I’ve learned to accept people for who they are and quit being judgmental as much.
A few years ago I didn’t have any support from friends, but I put the effort and work in and now have a few really good people that I consider friends. Here’s a picture of my friend on Memorial day and his “big catch”…we all got together and did a fishing trip/picnic that day.
