Want to feel like I'm needed. I want to feel respected by the one I love and care for. I always seem to feel unloved and hurt. I can't share my feelings of how I feel because I'm annoying. I don't want to make them feel miserable with me. .but love goes both ways. Sometimes when one is down the other is there to do they best to hold them up. You don't just pretty much run away and tell them to shut the fuck up. Like that shit hurts. Hearing that I can't force love? I never tried to. I get mixed emotions and feelings from them. My last relationship hurt me so much. I feel like I literally cried about it for a year. But I'm a baby? No I'm just highly sensitive and nobody seems to think that is ok. Nobody thinks it's okay to be how I am. And now I sit here staring blankly. .wanting to just fucking leave everyone and say there now I won't bother you anymore. I just thought that I meant more than that. I hate this feeling. I wish it would just stop. I know what I need to do and it just sucks!

@Little Hello Little, thank you for starting this discussion. I'm sorry you're not feeling respected. It can be so frustrating when you don't feel understood by the ones you love. Let me tag some members who can maybe share their advice with you or some words of support.

Yeah..to point where I'm an angry crazy person now. I react irrationally. I get stuck in my room in bed..nothing gets done...then he complains laundry ain't done..well if he'd get a grip on his heroin addiction I wouldn't be depressed! I'd be doing house chores...so yes. I'm frustrated from ppl not understanding

@Little Hey, I'm sorry you went through a bad relationship. From what you've said it sounds like it was toxic and you definitely deserve better. You are allowed to be sensitive and feel things.
I've definitely felt misunderstood too. I think people sometimes think that depression is just "feeling sad" like it's something you can just turn off or on. But it's not like that at all. I think it can definitely take a toll on relationships, especially if the other person isn't understanding or if you don't get help.

@Courtney_J I definitely have felt misunderstood and I've lost friends and relationships because of it. like @jasmine1092 said people just don't get that depression and anxiety and other mental health issues aren't something you can shake off or snap out of. It takes time to work through things and sometimes to even find the right therapist or medication. How do you all justify yourself or explain your depression to people?
