I really don't want to look a 'gift horse in the mouth' (wtf does that mean anyway?) because I don't get much support overall but..... I struggle with being happy with whatever kind of support I receive vs..... here's my deal.... when I receive the kind of "support" where I end up comforting the person who's supporting me because they're so worried about me. By all means it's not their fault but really, it's not support at all (even though, once again, I know they intend it to be) but it becomes the opposite of that because if I reach out for comfort, I end up being the one comforting you to feel okay about me not feeling okay and I'm not helped and so I wish I never would have said a word but I need to reach out and on and on..... can anyone identify?
