Whenever I'm feeling emotional, why does it get construed as being self-absorbed? Yeah, it's true - we all have selfishness inside us, but why must we always be seen in a negative light? What ever happened to BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT? And I just LOVE when you tell someone what the problem is, and they look at you like that's not really the problem, but some BIGGER problem - like they don't believe you when you say, "No, I'm just feeling this way because of blah blah blah" then they say, NO, you were just throwing a tantrum because of___(insert selfish reason here)____. And you're like NOOOOO, that's not it! They get you wrong, and then you're like forget it! Only God knows what I'm really feeling inside--who cares if you don't believe me or not?!?
It's exhausting. Sorry for venting. Sometimes we are just looking for a little bit of sympathy and you expect someone to be sympathetic and you get the opposite. I should just stop myself and remember the "pathetic" in sympathetic.
