For as long as I can remember, I have been the ear, the support, and the motivation for the people in my life. Overtime, I have become resentful of these people and have cut them out of my life. I too have stresses, anxiety issues, and other situations that have occured in my life. Over the past 2 years, I have ended 2 long term friendships because of their increasing flakiness and undependable nature. For the past 4 months I have been trying break off a long-term relationship with a man who I have determined to be selfish and emotionally unavailable. Sadly, it took me almost 2 years to figure this out.

Today, with 2 days left in 2011, I am 100% alone and in great need of friends, laughter, and somesort of positive support system. I WAS that system for others in my life at one time or another. NOW, I'm in desperate need of that in which I offered others.

 

I do have a child, and I know people will say, " you are not alone, you have your child." I don't like to consider my child as being the one I go to for support, companionship, etc...talk about unhealthly and disfunctional.

Friends...I need friends...a support system, where do I go?? Cry

disneydancer76,

 

It's okay to reach out to your old friends. That way, you would know whose real and whose not. Or you can always make new friends. Do you have neighbors? They are the ones near to you so I suggest you open up yourself to them. Ofcourse, not to all but the ones you think can be well-trusted. Or you can try the social networking sites, facebook? twitter? anything as long as you find it cool, fun and can lessen your worries and anxieties in life.

 

Remember that no man is an island. We are created with companions.

Yes, the admin is correct you can contact your old friends to discuss the issue, if you do not want to contact your old friends, then I will suggest that you spend some time in some forums and make some new friends like me to discuss all your issues. Let me know if you want any help or support from me.
