Is it me?

Okay so anytime I try to talk to people and they talk over me (which happens alot) after a while it's like I can't handle being cut off anymore and I just lose my s**t. I've tried to talk to people about how it makes me feel when they do that but they just continue to do it and then I end up being the bad one because I've shouted or stormed out of a room. I don't feel like anyone actually gets that by them doing that it's like they're lighting a fire inside me and I eventually just explode. It's exhausting constantly being made out to be this villain and no-one seems to understand or notice your pain. It happens with so many people and I'm really starting to wonder if it's me that's actually the problem.

    Hello @melbob

    I'm so sorry that you are going through this. I can feel the exhaustion in the post you typed. 

    I wanted to comment and mention SHOUT. They are a mental health support service through text. I have a friend who was in a similar situation to yours, a big family with no one conversing with them. They would text the service and vent with them so they didn't let that frustration build. I hope it may be helpful for you. 

    We are here too :) The community are such a lovely bunch <3
