Does anyone else feel at times like a dumping ground for drama/emotions/problems with their friends or family? And that when you have a problem or something going on, they have no time or make little time to talk to you? Or if they hurt your feelings and you tell them, they turn it around on you saying your being dramatic?I had this with 3 of my friends this week, all have done something to hurt my feelings or won't talk about my stuff. Yet I was there to talk intensely about their divorces, boyfriends, kuds, family ptoblems.

So when they have hurt you or say something rude, you don't say "that hurt my feelings?"

Yep, I agree. That's happening right now actually :/ I hate being used... They don't necessarily call me dramatic, but blame is somehow turned on me, and "winning" becomes more important than "resolution." Hang in there <3 Abusers have typically been abused, which is good to remember..

I've tried communicating with the whole "I feel" and "that hurt me" and they don't care. I do like tgat reminder of I'm human too like them. I think I have to figure out better boundaries as well.

I've been journaling, & noticed I'm writing in one for dumping all the feelings I pick up throughout my day. Until I'm able to breathe properly & ground myself, am I able to feel refreshed to share what I'm feeling about life.

I'm aware my friend(s) aren't able to pick up on my feelings, like I can theirs. I'm not so upset when I'm unable to get the same attention given. It's been more difficult for my good friends at first to comfort me over such a devastating loss. I wasn't able to be open for anyone until I was able to find my comfort, with what I feel, was him letting me know he was okay. I get messages all the time.
