“I need someone to talk to”
If you are thinking to yourself, “I need someone to talk to about my problems”. It seems that no one is out there to help nor someone to talk to, believe me you are not alone. It is in human nature to need other people as friends, confidants, family, and as co-workers. Its only natural if you feel “I need someone to talk to” and it is healthier to socialize. We are more productive when we create positive relationships and talk to someone. We need someone to talk to in order to just listen due to the human need of being heard. The need for someone to talk to is in human nature, if not fulfilled we feel alone in the world
Difficult to find someone to talk to
Yet, you may find yourself at a loss when it is time to find a listening ear. Just because people are friendly does not mean they have time to invest in listening to you talk about your problems or feelings. Even your real friends and family may not be the best choice for telling your problems to. They are somewhat biased and sometimes, your well-meaning friends and family may even lecture you rather than giving any practical advice.
People can even become depressed when they see the “illusion” of their friends’ successful lives on social media, assuming that because someone else is vacationing in Hawaii and having fun, their life at home is so meaningless. It is no wonder that many of us are even more depressed when seeking answers from social media. There is no filter here, no professional guidance… and you may very quickly learn that your friends are often too self-absorbed to really listen to your pain. Nor do they care about helping you.
