Here's a new concept for me.

Friday, January 18, 2013

I keep getting told over and over again "I'm here if you need anything" I know you are. I know there are quite a few people that if I need anything they would be there. Here's the problem, I don't know how to need someone. I don't know how to reach out to people, I do everything myself.

I like to be needed but don't like to be the one who "needs" I think it's time to start stepping back and realizing not everyone is going to take advantage of me, and that it's ok to be the one that needs something for once.

I definitely will admit things are becoming much more stable, all around.

    I can totally relate to this. It's hard for me to let myself need people too, but I'm working on it. I've just been let down too many times in my past, and it's just easier to depend on myself I find. I'm glad you have so many supportive people around you know, and that you're beginning to open up to their support.

    I used to be the opposite in that I always went to people when I was upset. Then I switched around and went to the nope, not talking to anyone, not letting anyone in phase. I've been in a relationship for almost 3 years now and it's been an interesting journey trying to balance it out. Just take it day by day, as the saying goes. When you are ready, you can slowly start reaching out and you'll really start to see for yourself that it can actually be quite a rewarding experience to have someone be there for you in addition to you being there for them. It's just a simple part of a healthy relationship, some give and some take. Gets less scary with time. Sounds like you have lots of support when you're ready emoticon

    I am the complete opposite. I envy you having been so independent. But yes, its your time to need.

    Yep , used to be the same way , very independent , wanting to reach out but , not knowing how. Sound familiar , well think of it like this, the people that are really here to help will tell you the truth whether you are hurt or not , not because they mean to hurt you or abuse you ( huge difference) , its because they will not blow smoke up your butt and insult your intelligence. What you need to do is sort out even if it takes a while who is genuine , then let the flood gates open without fear and total trust in yourself !! Hugs K
