I've felt really lonely as of late. I didn't realize it until now, but I've always gravitated towards the wrong people throughout my life, and it's gotten me nowhere. Just regret and pain. None of the people I know are genuinely my friends. I wouldn't count on them for support when I hit a rough patch and recently it was confirmed when I struggling mentally and psychologically over the fallout of a profound relationship I had with someone. No one that I knew was there nor seemed to care all that much. And romantic relationships have been even worse. I've dated some controlling people, and all I ever do is resist it because they can't accept me for who I am. It's exhausting and I can't take it anymore. I'm just sad over my lack of profound relationships. Everyone needs their space, but I have too much of it and I'm not that type of person. I like interaction. I'm brutally honest about things and if I say something different that's from the heart people react like I'm a creep/stalker/serial killer. Whatever has formulated in their head isn't positive. I don't get it. They react that way and then when someone is obviously fluffing their way in they fall head over heels over it. I'll just never be able to grasp that. But anyways, I was wondering if anyone else has or has had these feelings before?
