I’m just so frustrated.
I have never been great with relationships of any kind, but I thought I had gotten better. I thought I could tell when people were just being polite and when they actually liked me. But apparently I was totally, utterly wrong.
I feel like I have wasted my life trying to get along with people and not actually forging true connections.
I want to be valued and respected, but how do I ask for those things if I don’t even know who is willing to give them to me?
I don’t know where to go from here.
