It is really hard to figure out who to talk to about some things because you don’t want to burden your friends with your problems or make them feel sorry for you. That is never fun. Having everyone look at you like you are about to snap or start crying. No, talking to your friends may not be the answer.
Am I Really Alone?
You may feel like you are the only one who feels this way but you are definitely not the only one. In fact, everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes. We all need human contact at one time or another and sometimes we all have trouble figuring out who we want to talk to. It may seem funny because you have about a thousand friends on Facebook but you still cannot find anyone to talk to. Social media friends are different from regular friends and you really do not know who you can trust on there if you do not know them in person. Even the people you know in person may not be all that trustworthy! It depends on what you want to talk about. You cannot share your feelings with just anyone because they may tell everyone else what you say. So, what should you do?
See A Therapist?
Well, you could go see a therapist or psychologist. But, if you do not happen to have one you will have to find one and sometimes it can take quite a while to find the one that you like. That means finding a therapist and going to meet them and if you do not like them, you have to start all over again. Because, yes, you have to like your therapist. You are not going to feel comfortable spilling your guts to someone you do not like, right? Also, sometimes you have to wait weeks to get an appointment, which is really annoying when you just want to talk to someone. Then you wait several weeks and find out you do not even like them so you have to start all over again! Nope! Not for me!
That is why online therapy is so awesome! Some people may think it is stupid to talk to a therapist online because you cannot see them in person. But, actually, that makes it even better for people like me. I tend to be a loner who has a hard time talking about my feelings face to face but I can write down my feelings all day long. So, online therapy is perfect for me. It is also great for people with depression or anxiety disorders who have a hard time getting out of the house. In fact, some people with depression like me have a hard time just getting out of bed. That makes online therapy perfect. I can do it from the comfort of my own bed. Of course, eventually I have to get out of bed but when I am feeling in a funk and need to talk to someone, being able to chat online through my phone or tablet makes it so simple and painless. And we all have enough pain, right?
