Re: In Need of Advice... or Comforting
I'm with bella67 on the part where if you have someone there to help you, then take what you can get. Off at college (I am home now), I really didn't have anyone to help me. I had tons of friends, and they are great friends, except when it came to my FM. They just didn't understand and lacked sympathy and empathy to my situation. I didn't look sick, so no one bothered to help me. And when I asked for help, they would, but, I don't know, you could just tell that it wasn't something they thought they needed to be doing or wanted to do to help me. I wouldn't say that makes them horrible people, but, I think everybody needs to try to learn to have a little empathy (as I am very empathetic (great for being a psychologist!) and the ONLY thing I can't empathize with is lack of empathy--i just don't understand how you can have NONE, but that's a whole other subject). Anyway, when someone was willing to help me, I tried to accept it, because sometimes I don't get a lot of help. Here at home, I have my boyfriend who is always willing to help, and I have my parents, and they are pretty good about it too. So, take what you can get, or a better way of putting it is take when you need (don't overtake) and then, as my psychologist would say "get over it." (in a nice way of course) "Everybody needs help, you just might need help a little bit more. Take it, be humble, and get over it!" =)
Yeah, I hope that helped at all. I'm not even sure if I am talking about the same thing as you now. My mind is foggy. Oh well, ignore it if I'm completely off subject.
