"We're only trying to help"
I'm extremely sick of people especially my family saying they're only trying to help when I have problems when they're only being annoying. Like telling me to stop panicking and being so sensitive and rubbing reality in my face and saying I'm making a big deal over nothing and asking if I'm OK when I don't want them intervening and worrying and just want to be alone. Or being harsh when teaching me stuff and advising me, or taking me away from what I really want or saying I bring the problem out on myself. And saying it's not good to keep my feelings inside and I should tell them straight away when I only want to share my problems with specific people. And saying they only want whats best when it's not the best if it upsets me
I'm really tired of people mainly looking out for themselves and simply hating seeing me despairing or simply wanting to fulfil their roles as parents or teachers and just dealing with aspects of the problem affecting them, hence. Plus whenever I'm upset it always happens that either everyone or no one pays attention to me. Why can't it be just 1 or 2 people??!!! Seriously, I prefer quality, not quantity!!!!!!! I'm tired of looking vulnerable to people, that's how I naturally look for God's sake! I so wish I was never part of the stupid family and it wasn't parents like them who gave birth to me
