History Repeating Itself

Its been a while since I wrote on here which in hindsight is probably a good thing as I haven't felt I've needed to. Tonight I've got a deja vu feeling though which I was hoping to not feel again. Its making me feel a bit helpless in a way I haven't felt in a long time. Sometimes I feel like no matter what you do or say some people just close their ears off to anything that isn't what they want to hear. Usually I try to not let that bother me, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and some people just aren't in a place to see things from another perspective/ accept things. Which is fine, lifes a journey and everyone has to go through the motions and process their own feelings in their own time. I'm just feeling frustrated because I tried to open up about something I never would usually to a family member and they shut it down completely, even when I expressed that their actions effect me negatively. Its really annoying and tbh its made me feel quite hurt. Mentally it put me back to how I felt 8 years ago which was a really dark place that I never want to revisit. I know I'm not the same person I was then,  I guess by even sharing this it proves to myself i know I'm not because I'm not sweeping it under my own mental carpet. As much as I've tried to move on I don't think I expected to have to relive certain emotions again and now I have to figure out how to process that. 

Anyway, quite vague but I just thought I'd write it down, let it go and all that. 

Thanks for reading

    Hi @Evelyn360. I understand what you mean, some people just don’t want to listen, and it’s difficult to just move on when it’s a subject that means so much to you. I’m really sorry they didn’t listen, but you did the right thing coming here. That was a really strong thing to do and you should be proud of yourself.
    Im not very helpful and I don’t have any advice, all I can say is that I’m listening and I care. And if you ever need someone to talk to I’m more than happy to listen.

    I wish you all the best, hope you have a good night.  :)
