I got a private message from someone saying that my comments on her posts only make her feel worse so she was going to unfriend me. She must have already blocked me because I just happened to be online so I read the message almost as soon as it was posted and I wasn’t able to reply to her.
This makes me sad. I didn’t know I was bothering her with my comments. I wish she had said something before it got to this point. I wish I knew better how to connect with her.
I know her from a mental health support group. I assume she has issues, but then I have issues. We all have issues there. That’s why we’re in a mental health support group in the first place. I would usually go to that group for feedback, but I don’t feel like I can. I don’t want to piss her off even more, for a start, but I also don’t want to open myself up to trolling if I really am a jerk.
I don’t think I’m a jerk, but it matters what other people think of me. Not a lot, but some. I mean, you can hardly be a jerk to yourself but you might not see how you are being a jerk to other people. We all get nearsighted and can’t see how what we did affects others.
So tell me I am being difficult for you before you get to the point where all you can do is run away. I thought we were getting to know each other, but apparently that didn’t cut both ways. I am sad. I’m sad that she unfriended me and I’m sad that she didn’t speak up sooner and I’m sad that I don’t know what I did.
