Things That People Say: I’m always here if you want to talk
What (some of them) mean: I’m just saying it to be nice. I don’t really want to lend you my shoulder because I just don’t.
These people are the worst. Some maybe have no clue what to say. I remember when I was away from home and going through a rough time. I confided in a few friends. One of them basically ignored it. The other one got back a few weeks later with an emoji. I said nothing but I have pulled away from them both. Sorry that I have problems and whatnot. If it had been a matter of life of death, that would have been it. In the end, intervention came in the form of a website called https://www.elefriends.org.uk. It was just what I needed and soon after life became the distraction I needed from well, life. So, if you ever feel alone and sad – check out that site. Or blog about it. Whatever works 🙂
