It sounds like this treatment really makes you angry. I wonder what other emotions might be with the anger. Maybe humiliation and/or shame?

Well makes sense to me. I'm really angry about a lot of things.

I suggest going to see a therapist and discussing your issues there. It is a safe place and they will listen to you and give you advice based on that information.

I have been through many therapists in my day - you have to find one you can trust. That is the hard part.

Have you always connected differently emotionally? Do you have any idea why, or how you come across?

It's not everybody just some people. I come across as calm to people. Some people just like to put you down for having a different opinion than you do. They look down on you cause you feel bad towards different things.

You're saying further above that people treat you differently. You say they have compassion for others, but not for you. Do you think you get singled out to be shown no compassion? What would account for that?

I don't really want to get into that right now except that I have anxiety about people and it makes me mad. Some things I just don't wanna talk about.

I don't know. I just try to talk to people about problems I'm having in a calm way so I don't upset anybody cause I've been told it's not good to hold everything in and then people seem to get upset with me. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Maybe your calmness gets taken to mean you're not really that stressed out about what's troubling you. That might lead people to underestimate the difficulty of what you're going through.

Well I'm talking about a bunch of different people here. They have different reasons for doing things. Sometimes people just don't understand what your going through and no matter how I express it there just not gonna be understanding. They come off in a negative way and are like how could you think like that? I don't really know how to explain it. It's just the way people express themselves. It's really hard to explain how people act. I've known them a long time. There just not very understanding people. It's just the way they act that tells me that. I'm not the only one who thinks this. Plus why should people assume that I'm not having a hard time because I'm acting calm. I don't really express myself emotionally cause people just get all judgmental when your emotional. But if I'm calm then I couldn't possibly be going through that much. That's just how I am. I try to not be too emotional. I should be allowed to express myself this way. If I'm talking about something thats bothering me then they should think that it could be really bothering me. People should try to be more understanding. Just cause I'm a more quiet person doesn't mean I'm not going through a lot but people will say that they have it worse. I feel my emotions just as deeply as anyone else. But then doesn't that mean I'm just too sensitive if I feel them that deeply? Yet people will try to one up you.
