    Dear sweetheart,
    When I cry to you about my issues, it means I need comforting. I’m not asking for you to solve my problems or anything. Just a little reassurance and a hug will do. I wish you could get that through your head…

      Tell that person again. Say it in different ways.

      they dont care, no matter how much they say they do, they just wanna go out and get back to their normal lives. tending to you is a sacrifice they reluctantly make. the more you expect the more they’ll let you down or belittle your feelings. your better off crying into your pillow – less disappointing.

      Telling other people what you need from them helps create intimacy, which is what relationships need. Cynicism breeds more resentment, and you end up alone and bitter whether you wanna be or not. Cry in to your pillow instead of on their shoulder if you want, but I bet you won’t keep that relationship much longer after you make that decision.

      i want to believe that opening up works, that sharing how things make you feel can bring two ppl closer, but i find all it does is leaves you more raw and vulnerable only to allow yourself to be hurt more deeply in the future.

      I guess it’s all about your mindset and motivations then. I’m not saying that you need to give everything to everybody. I keep myself from people all the time. But completely closing up is not a solution, either.

      People will hurt you. They’ll hurt you whether you open up to them or not. Some might do it on purpose, but I think most of the time they don’t do it on purpose. Maybe they would do whatever it takes to keep your connection if you let them know you’re hurting. You just have to take the time to pick ones that are worth the work. Sometimes you can’t see whether they’re worth it until they’ve hurt you once or twice, and you can see what they do about it.
