No one to talk to... I'm like standing on the edge of a cliff debating whether or not I should jump...

I'm the person everyone comes to when they need help and usually I'm all smiles. But this last year has been extremely difficult. I'm not only dealing with my issues but other person issues too and I no longer have enough strength for all that. My family sees me as the odd one out so apparently I'm not "normal"... whatever that is. I get yelled at a lot and I really dont do anything. In the last three weeks four people in my life have died, and yet not one tear has been shed by me... maybe my fam is right. I guess I'm not normal

It's not abnormal to not cry. I've never cried at a single funeral (I've been to at least six that I can remember) and I've never shed a single tear at any of them. Not even at my uncle's, with whom I was extremely close to. I know what it feels like to be the shoulder that everyone cries on. If you need to ever talk out your problems, I'm here to listen. Trust me, I'll be a friend for you. I also know what it's like to be "shunned" by my family. I'm apparently the odd one out because I don't really look or act like the rest of them. My mom (before she dyed her hair a reddish color) and two brothers have dark brown hair and light hazel brown eyes. My dad used to have dark hair before it turned gray and he started balding, and he also has blue eyes. I, however, have blond hair and eyes such a dark shade of brown they look black. I'm also a little different compared to my family. However, don't be affected by any of this. You are the way you were meant to be. Society is what's messed up, not you.

I agree with Waff.  Whenever you need any sorta help or anyone to listen, you have me. Just funk it and grab a bite and enjoy while you can...Thats my theory....not that I abide by it

I know how you feel. I'm the girl people go to with there problems and at time you think who do i got to? It really helped me to tlak to the guidance counselor at school. As for crying, I'm the same way. I was raised with the thought that crying was a sign of weakness, so i stopeed doing it, but crying is proven to be good for you. Now i wish I had been a little more open with my emptions:) you said you've known four people who have died, and I can't say I know what that feels like, but maybe you're just too shocked to shed a tear. It probably seems rough now but trust me when I say that time will heal those wounds

It's alright, my Uncle died and I didn't really cry. It's not that you don't have feelings or anything. I didn't know my Uncle that well. . .

I know how you feel I'm always the person people go to for help. If all that pressure feels like its about to crush just let it all out we'll listen cause we know how it feels
