Unfortunately i don't at this hour and if i did have someone i wouldn't bother them with my problems. I think everyone has enough of their own and maybe more that they must deal with. Why add more. I think i'm just a bit weary. Good Night! Er, morning.

I have friends I can talk to about things or problems that are bothering me--and that's okay when it's at a fairly decent hour...the problem is...I guess I feel the same as you...sometimes those problems or things that are bothering you and hit you when its just too darn late to talk to anyone---I guess my "cure" for it is to just keep myself busy to distract myself and not think about it...I also know how you feel too...everyone has there share of s*** that they're dealing with in life, and to tell people about your own problems can be a downer on them...I know I personally don't like it myself...I know one friend, my "butt" friend..LOL, who is a real whiner...I mean it is one thing to talk about one's hardships once in awhile..but all the time? Uh, nope.....So I try not to be too much of a pest with my own issues I'm dealing with...at least not constantly anyway...LOL

Have you ever tried hiding on your butt friend? LOL! Throughout my life i have been the good listener, but now that i believe i need a listener, i find it difficult finding one! The days are good, someones there, the late hours, the ones i trust aren't available, so i think. Take care Pyewacket.

Doesn't that seem to be the thing....I've been told I'm a good listener...so most of my life it seemed people would just love to dump their problems on me...honestly I missed my calling...either I should have been a psychiatrist or bar-tender..the two professions one listens to problems in life and get paid for it...But perhaps you have come across the same thing...the moment you want to dump your problems on the very same people who would dump their problems to you...they excuse themselves, or say they're busy...

I'm very fortunate as I have a husband to talk to. If you ever need someone to talk to my door is open. You are not bothering us with your problems. Is that not what friendship is about?

There is some stuff i wouldn't want to disclose in a mylot discussion! Some of my concerns are mature matters and could be very embarrasing for me! My wife knows my concerns but, isn't much help offering advice or helping to find solutions. She is kept very busy and i have a hard time getting to spend time with her. Take care Swtrose.

I was not asking you to disclose them in a mylot discussion. I have messenger. Anyhow, the offer stands. It is your call.

Yes. I do have someone to talk to when my feeling are down. But i know that in the last few years i rather not talk to someone when my feelings are down, but to look at the situation, to analyze it and to see why i am feeling like that and solve it by myself. It does give me a feeling that i have more control of my life, and that i am strong enough to solve my problems. i do believe that somtimes when we talk to others too much about our problems, it becomes an easy unsolvable pattern of life for us. So i am trying other way to solve it. You must remember that we have everything inside that can solve out down situation. We can help ourselves. We can think more simply, usually when we have problems they are because we feel we need to have them, to have a kind of catharsis. The question is why do you think that you are weary by acting and thinking the way you described here? I think you are just fine. :)

It's not so much a problem i hold inside, it's more of a lonliness and a grieving the loss of loved ones that i feel way too often. Coping with these feelings is slowly improving for me, i feel good about that! Take care Liranlgo

I think it's good to meet some real and decent friends on-line, especially for the rough times and for helping one another. Mylot never closes so there is always people here willing to listen and offer advice! Take care Ericajoyce.

Me too. I don't have anybody to talk to when I am down. I love talking to someone so that the burden will be lessen. I hope one day I would be able to find that someone. God bless.

I find it hard to talk to some friends because of the times i feel down and need to chat. I am usually on mylot quite a bit so if i can be helpful just let me know. I am a good listener and i've been through a lot! Take care Ladysurvivor.

That's why I truly love this site my friend, it's not because of the money that keeps bringing me back day after day, it's the wonderful community and in particular my friends. I actually use and I'm first to admit it this site as counseling, because I know that whenever I have a problem, need support or need someone to talk to I have my wonderful friends on Mylot to confide in!

I think wives are the best for comfort out of all. Some things though, are hard to talk about with your wife! That is the problem i am having. Take care Ranjeet kolarkar.

I think it is not try to go to sleep when you are troubled. Surely there must be someone.No? Personaly I more often than not solve my own problems. It is better tho when the situations resolve themselves. That is always a relief! Maybe there is some of us here at MyLot can help you. see a lot of that...
