I want to let everyone down

Just because no one was there for me when I needed someone.

I’m sorry your needs weren’t met. But it won’t actually feel good to not be there for anyone

I know. I just want to get even - even though it would be with the wrong people.

That’ll just make you feel bad in the end. It’s not worth it

It’s likely they didn’t know how to be, or that they didn’t know the extent to which they were needed. Or perhaps you placed too much expectations on them. Being a person is in itself a struggle. Taking on someone else’s is often too much for anyone.

I used to hold people accountable for this too, but I ultimately realized it was not fair. I’m responsible for dealing with my struggles. The people I have around me I choose. If they add to them, I cut them off. Otherwise, I’m just thankful to have them around. Sometimes that’s all you can hope for.
