A guy I’ve been having a thing with and I just ended things, because even though we still really like each other, and care for each other, he doesn’t want to be in a relationship right now.
I don’t want to tell my friends yet for a couple of reasons
1) Don’t feel like dealing with them and their questions/pity/sympathy
2) I have exams, see 1
3) It means it’s real
4) I’ll have to actually confront what happened -denial is bliss (see 2)
And this is where the messed up part comes:
The one person who’s helping me carry on (because it’s harder when you’re on the verge of depression (or already in, I’m kind of numb))
is the person I’m supposed to be carrying on without. Because he’s the only one who knows what’s going on. And “he’s here for me no matter what”
oh. and he told me not to tell anyone because “we both need time just to think about some stuff and clear our heads”
Is it messed up? Is it?
Did you know on average the human body needs 8 positive touches a day to survive? This includes: hand shakes, a hand on the shoulder, a hug, a kiss. etc. So you people saying, people that are depressed are just upset because they don’t get attention, in a way, you’re right, when your body lacks positive touches it can stunt your growth and effect your mental and emotional development. Give a hug.
