am an introvert. That means that when I’m feeling down, chances are that I won’t actually go to you for help. In fact, I won’t go to anyone for help. You’ll have to actually check on me. I don’t feel that I should burden others with my problems but if you come to me, I might just trust you enough to let you help.
I'm posting this not because I expect anyone to reblog it, but because I do find it very true of me, especially the not wanting to burden others with my problems bit. I've actually gone without getting help on some occasions (up to and including seeking out a doctor when I probably had a medical issue) because of that.
In a way, this blog helps a bit because I find it easier to write out the stuff that's eating at me than to go tell someone about it. I suppose it's because I feel people reading my posts are "opting in" to read them, and when someone comes to you with a problem, you can't really "opt out" of hearing them if you're busy, or don't want to, or if you have problems of your own. I'm bad about feeling that other people have more pressing problems than I do and don't want to hear what I'm dealing with.
