Reply To: Friends don’t understand
My post wasn’t to deter you from posting. I do think talk therapy could be good, as it can be in most relationship breakdown.
Being aware of others situations at this time isn’t benefitting you. Indeed it’s adding to your woes. And their apparently idyllic lives may be anything but.
Redirecting that ficus and energy will benefit you.
There are plenty of posters who will happily post and respond to posts about their equally awful situations if you want to do that. I personally won’t because I see no purpose and gain, preferring to be practical. Such as in your situation suggesting good routes for new employment, mortgage advice etc.
