No its not personal at all, some people love and support you but don't have the brain power or time to give you all the comfort or solutions you need. She's trying to set a boundary that its not something she can talk through so thoroughly or provide you with help, and we have to respect that.
No it actually wasn't that way. I have another friend who acts in that way and I learned to respect that as I got to understand it by time. But this friend was trying to one up, because she does it in other topics as well. I shouldn't have shared my experience with her but I was in a bad mental space I was talking to her so it sort of just happened.
@not_me Oh I'm sorry, I read it as "I have many things to do". sometimes mental illness makes people have an ego about it , it's a weird phenomenon im sorry she's like that.
@whatadooo Np, I actually had this problem with my other friend. It wasn't OCD related but she couldn't tell me what to do about my problems and I thought she didn't care and had a whole fight about but she just didn't know how to express herself so I got to learn to respect people's boundaries now. But today was kind of difficult especially beacuse OCD's favourite lie is to tell you that you don't have it. We'll get through this though ❤
I lost a friend because of this because I kept telling them about my ocd once I initially opened up and didn't realize these little signs of them trying to set a boundary, some friends are just meant to be friends for other life things, not our journals for ocd. I didn't realize till a year later thats why they had stopped talking to me, they had too much on their own plate to help with mine.
