No question, just need to vent. (major disappointment)

Something happened, that really depressed and hit me so bad, that I thought: "Who the heck needs friends anyway? They're just people you enable to hurt you!" -I'm very temped to keep to myself from now on. Opening up, making new friends? No, thanks. I had my share for now.

Also feeling incredibly stupid for LETTING her hurt me.

Have you ever had that happen to you?

  • Hells yeah, I have felt that way. I still do feel that way, it's been a long damn time since I've allowed myself to be completely open, what folks get is the "Edited For Social Circumstances" version of me.

  • No I guess because for the most part I am a loner and I am quite comfortable with it.

  • its hard to explain but when me and my ex reconnected, i still had feelings for him while i was married (my marriage isnt the best),he also let me know he still had feelings for me so we were close and discussed these feelings and the past and all and then after a while my ex kind of said "i have needs (i wasnt planning on filling them) and i need to move on." so i guess he has no feelings for me just in a snap of a finger and didnt even really want to talk to me like i was his friend even. I lost 10 pounds because of it and finally got myself over the hurt and now for some reason, i can't seem to have feelings for my husband or anyone else. i'm just an emotionless person and have been for a while now.

    so i think i know what your going through, who needs a partner in life, they just stomp on your feelings is my question.
