people expect me to open up to them, and they say it’ll be better for me, but it’s not like that at all. i get that it works for lots of people, but it just makes me feel way too anxious and vulnerable, i always end up feeling worse than i felt before telling someone. people often don’t respect this, and they push too hard to get me to talk because they think it’s what’s best. it isn’t. respect people’s boundaries.
