Hi, ozzychic, how are you? I can understand your feeling, sometimes talking to third party (strangers) can get neutral or honest opinion. I think blurtit is a right place, lots of wise people there (e.g. Amore01, robbiet, nanny, etc) you can go to their groups to talk to them. I am definitely recommend Live well . Good luck

I think when a person talks to strangers, they feel safer because strangers don't usually judge you as a family member would. This is a good site to "vent", state your feelings, and get some usually good feedback. If your situation is a little more serious, you may want to seek more professional help. All of the above above answers are a real good starting point for you, I think. Hope this helps.

I found a wonderful website called webhealing.com. It's a forum that deals with grief. I don't know what kind of things you need to discuss but it is a site that makes things easier to deal with and the support there is really great.
Check it out....if this isn't what you are looking for, I agree that therapy would be worth looking into

It really depends on the things that you need to talk about and how they are affecting your life. I would suggest a therapist if these topics are very troubling, as well as speaking to people on the internet. Myself, I found a great person on a game site years ago and we both see a therapist but also talk to one another for support. I hope you find someone.

I think the best thing to do is talk to a therapist. The internet is a great place but if you're having issues the internet can only help you so much. A therapist can not only help you with the topics you feel you can't discuss with your friends & family they can also help you to discover why you feel that way & teach you different techniques that will help you feel more comfortable opening up to those important people in your life! Good luck!

I know the feeling all too well. I've spent the last couple of years dealing with my wife's infidelity on my own. I had a best friend who I'd always talk to about things, but he was involved, so, we're not friends any more. Although, I have "talked" to him about it.

Anyway, things were going along OK. We're getting through it. It bothers me knowing it can never be what it once was. I have things rattling through my brain almost constantly.

Some times, I have wondered how my life would have been if I had married a girl that got away a long time ago. I was dumb to walk away from her when I did, and have regretted it ever since. I didn't have any contact with her for 30 years.

Suddenly, she is here. She found me online and contacted me. I have no idea why. She's married. I'm married. I'm not sure what to do with her. Before everything with my wife, I would have told her about it. Now, because of what SHE did, she gets it in her head that I would cheat on her (I never would), so, mentioning this old flame wouldn't go over well.

I think I'm confused on what I should do here, if anything, but I'm not sure.

I can understand how you feel. My husband has been unfaithful to me and I am scared that our marriage will never be the same again. I constantly question his whereabouts when he is away from home and I can't seem to find it in my heart to totally forgive him for all of the hurt and pain he has caused me and our family. I am still with him because I love him and we have 2 young children together. He swears that he will never cheat on me again, but I don't believe. I don't know what to do.

I know just how you feel..I've talked to therapists but have gotten nowhere...I just need someone
to listen to me and understand.  I can't share with my husband because he usually sees me at
fault and most times I just can't see it.  I can't share with friends because I don't have anyone
who wants to do anything except share their problems or just share nothing but the positive in
their own lives, besides I would never want any problems I am discussing about anyone to get
back to that person and of course that possibility exists, since everyone I know, knows everyone
I know.  If you would like someone to share with I am looking for the same thing
please contact me.
 
Thanks

Hi, I truly understand how you feel, as I feel the same way and find myself holding things in.  Of course that is harmful which is the reason for many heart attacks, so if you need to talk, I will listen, I won't judge or criticize.  I'll just lend a ear or text or what ever its called now a days.

My future brother-in-law totally disrespected my mother.  He's been living with my sister for over 6 years and finally decides to get engaged.  I wasn't there, but he said on the phone to my sister (sister was at my mothers), that my mother "should get some back-bone and go to pay the reception hall, or I'll put down the down payment and marry someone else" and some other sh-t.  The little troll should be happy to have my sister.  Apparently my sister didn't tell him off for this (she loves him she says) - if it were me - I would have said goodbye Charlie.  We have ALWAYS

I know how you feel, I used to be so happy and able to have someone (best friends or boyfriends) to talk to about everything.  Now I don't know where I've made a left turn to where I don't feel comfortable talking to anyone not even my husband.  Sounds bad yes I know but its the truth.  I wish I could help but I'm in the same boat and a therapist is not necessarily within my budget right now.

Talking with strangers is a safe, secure route to say what you truely mean, something most of us can't do with those we're close to.  There's nothing wrong with needed an ear, now and then, but remember, if you ask for advise, be open enough to listen and act on the good advise given.  Otherwise, it's a waste of everyone's time.

You're right, we can try.. Feed back can be more valuable from anyone who does not have
an invested interested in the problems. I am told that I offer pretty good advice - trouble is
I sometimes have a hard time hearing my own advice and applying it to myself. Let me know
How I can help - My problems are dealing with loneliness, isolation, and relationships -- I guess they are the age old problems..It seems like it take some of us a very long time to learn
how to master these human needs
