Lately I have been feeling more alone than lonely.
I feel like I cannot turn to people in my support system. They have their own issues in life and I feel it is selfish to talk to them about what I am feeling.
With some I have tried to talk to but feel blown off. Others, I feel l like I should not tell the truth when I am fighting against the pull of depression or trying to keep full mania from taking over.
Are these people really part of a support system for my mental wellness or have I been fooling myself because I have felt comfortable being honest on occasion?
Is this my reality that they are not really go to people or is this stinking thinking?
Feedback please. How do you know when someone is part of a support system for your mental battle?
