I've been having a hard time with things these past few months. I have been having personal issues with family and that has caused me to feel very stressed and overwhelmed and just down in the dumps.
I've noticed that when I talk with friends and am asked how things are going with me, I'll simply respond with "not great" or "could be better" and it's looked over like I never said anything. They then just go on talking about things in their lives not even seeming to care.
I've never been one to force myself on people, just figuring if they wanted to hear about how I'm really doing or about my day, they would do more than the initial polite salutations......I have yet to have ever gotten a "I'm here for you, tell me about it." That is what I do when I get responses like that from them because I want to be supportive of my friends.
So, needless to say, I never tell anyone about things that I am going through and I'm left feeling like I'm a friend to everyone but no one is a friend to me. All I want is a friend that actually cares about what's really happening with me, not just one that is satisfied with the outer layer that I show to everyone else.
Is it wrong of me to want them to ask about it instead of me just spilling my guts up?
