They tell you they love you, as if that's supposed to make you feel better! They don't even know you, yet they love you??? And then they give you stupid cliches and slogans like "Suicide is the coward's way out!" "Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem!" That's supposed to make a suicidal person feel better??? Are they for real? That person is so desperately depressed that they want to end their life, and all you can do is tell them to get help and you love them and their problems are temporary and things will get better and they're a coward and they're selfish if they kill their self! These people make you want to commit suicide! Stupid cliches and slogans won't help a depressed person! Why are these morons trying to give advice about a subject they know nothing about???

    I work for a charity that helps homeless and people with drug addictions get to medical appointments. We are required to use our own vehicle and In turn we get reimbursed for gas, mileage, and they cover all maintenance expenses. My issue is that people see me picking these people up and dropping them off and I always have this fear that people are assuming that I am picking up these people for illicit purposes. As I was leaving my condo one of the guys who maintains the property snickered in my face. He did it like he knows something about me. I think he’s from that lower income area where I work, and he might see me picking up those drug addict prostitutes. I would quit but I enjoy helping people and it pays a lot of money.

    Best answer: If your friends are treating you like that than they are not your friends, I would look for new ones - go into a hobby (dance, drama, music, knitting) and meet new people. Life is to short to care about those who don t care for you.
    Find something that makes you happy - focus on that as opposed to things that make you unhappy. I got into music and now focus my energy onto that. It feels rewarding ;D

    It s not for me to say though you may have a paranoia problem. Most people don t really look at other people, they are just doing their own thing, and if you are seeing dirty looks from people you don t know it might be something you are seeing. I would suggest taking the advise of petrof, some therapy cant hurt and the professional could give you some techniques to help feel comfortable.

    You will be fine - your e just going through a rough patch. Make sure to get out of that loop and live life. You are young ;D

  • Do many adults have few if any friends? why this is? why many adults seem to be more introverted & reclusive?

    Best answer: Adults have few friends because we define a difference between friends and acquaintances, which we might also call casual friends.

    Best answer: Adults have few friends because we define a difference between friends and acquaintances, which we might also call casual friends.

    Friends are those few people to whom we can turn for help and expect them to help. Acquaintances or casual friends are nice to socialize with now and then, but we'd never impose on them by asking them for help. Adults tend to have lots of acquaintances and few friends.

    We have few friends because they require a high level of trust. And there are few people that we come to know intimately who can earn that trust. I'm guessing, but I would guess you only have one or two friends with whom you'd share your innermost secrets. The rest of your friends are probably really acquaintances.
