I haven't seen anyone about the way I feel. I really feel alone because no one understands or believes me. Has anyone every gone through something generally similar?

It can be hard to talk to friends or family about what you're going through. Sometimes it can feel like people have previous assumptions about you that prevent them from understanding your feelings or intentions. In the past, I have tried to reach out the someone close to me, despite feeling as if they wouldn't understand, and I have been surprised to know they listened and cared! But, if that doesn't work out, there is no shame in reaching out to a professional for help. They are nonjudgmental and unbiased, and are there to listen, empathize and help you through your problems.

At a certain point in our lives, we struggle with a few things or situations that are sometimes out of our control. It's difficult to explain this to others that have never gone through the same situation as you or felt such extreme emotions. While people can that have not been through the same experiences as you have, they can only sympathize, however you will find that many people will listen and hear you out!

Many people feel misunderstood, especially people with mental disorders or psychological problems in general. It's okay. We feel misunderstood because often other people can't imagine what we're going through. Every person is different and every person experiences things in their own way. But you're not alone in feeling alone, if I may put it that way. That's why we're trying to spread mental health awareness and that's why 7Cups exists - to provide you support when you need it. Life is based on change, because that's essentially what passage of time is. That's why you may feel very alone now - but it won't last forever. Nothing will. So hang on in there and remember that we here all believe in you very hard!

this community is here for this exact purpose. many of us are here because we are looking for the support that we can't find in our respective communities. I myself felt very alone in my situation, even after I told people about how I was feeling. not everyone can understand what it's like to feel so terrible on a daily basis, because they've never experienced it firsthand. we, on the other hand, have, and our listeners are here because we want to help people like you. some of us have been through the exact same thing you did, and we want to do our very best to make sure that people like you get the here we now know everyone deserves. we're here for you, don't ever feel like you're alone in all of this
