You Can Talk To Me Stamp by HazelAlmonds You Can Talk To Me Stamp by HazelAlmonds
So I was browsing through the stamps here on DA and found this particular one right here:

I remember they had these yellow ribbon cards at my school and I grabbed a whole bunch. The people I gave them to were always really appreciative.

Middle-Highschool, I had a lot of mentally fucked up friends who did drugs, inflicted bodily harm, skipped school, etc, etc on a daily basis. but I still loved them. Call me twisted? XD even they thought so the way I was always so happy smile but still continued to hang out with them and listen to their daily rants. It always made me smile whenever my friends would open up to me, but it was always a pain trying to pry it out of them. >_>;; really, you may think that you're a bother/troublesome but you're not. You may not realize it but keeping things bottled up inside is what really hurts me the most. It makes me feel worthless, am I really not trustworthy? And that's my stance.

And I guess what I'm also trying to say is you don't have to be suicidal in order to have a heart to heart talk nor do we have to really know each other.

Relationships, politics, sports, religion, daily life, etc, etc. I don't judge, I always keep an open mind about everything. I won't interrupt, I'll let you finish till it's all off your chest.

Cuz really I know how you feel. I've gone through hell and back through my youth, but in the end I was always able to overcome the toughest of challenges. One of the secrets that got me through most of it was just opening up to people. My friends weren't the most mentally stable, so whenever I had a problem or just felt depressed about life and the world, most often I would open up to complete strangers: online forum boards, school faculty, etc. And just like that I always felt so much better. Just to have someone listen and empathize with me meant the world and always gave me the strength, courage, and clarity to do better, relax, and help myself

So that's the story. Feel free to use.

You sound like the sort of person who understands why some people rant about even the smallest thing that bothers them. I'm that type of person. I rant over what some people would perceive as insignificant or even stupid, but I tend to do that sort of thing just to get it off my chest, because once it's off my chest and out of my system, I feel better. There are times where I feel people just don't understand that. It's nice to see someone like you around. I think the world needs people like you, who are willing to help others just by listening to them.

Okay, I just really need advice. My parents divorced when I was young so I stayed with my mother. Father completely ignored my younger brother and I yet now he wants us to go stay with him for a year. He lives in Missouri and I live in Florida, I want to tell him no but I don't want to hurt him. He is suffering with post traumatic stress, the last time he visited he was completely hammered the whole time. I don't really care if I go its just my brother was ignored his whole life and when he wasn't it was only to point out how "weak" he is. I'm sorry I just really need some advice.

Ah sorry for the late reply. I'm not on here as much as I use to.

The way you described it it sounds like your dad may be trying to make up for all the time he wasn't there. he might be feeling guilt and maybe trying to open up his life to you is his way of trying to repent for his mistakes.

It's really hard though when someone you care about has problems like that, like the whole drinking and PTS thing. If he wants to try to change for the better then that's great. That's his cry for help.

 I think the solution though really all depends on how you feel.

I know you're technically the "kid" in the relationship but it sounds like your dad really needs an "adult" in his life. I know I had to do that when my parents divorced.  I had to step up and be the "adult" for my mom. I had to be the strong supportive mature one to take care of my mom who was an emotional wreck.

All people, even adults, have moments of weakness. It can be hard especially when there isn't the right support in their life.

If he wants to change then there's always hope. he just needs the right support and the right influence. You can choose to be that support in his life or you can choose not to. It all really depends on what your exact situation is.

If he's a stubborn mess then it isn't worth the time. Like the expression, "you can drag a horse to water, but you can't make it drink" . If your dad is unwilling to change for the better, then he isn't ever going to no matter how much you push.

There is also another expression, "You can't help others, if you can't help yourself". Meaning if you can't take care of your own emotional state, or at least ignore it/push it aside, then trying to help your dad will only get very messy. If you can't control your emotions around your dad, he's not going to get any better and may actually get worse.

What's more so, if you are struggling with your emotional state and have someone like your dad in your life, then you may actually get worse. You have to really consider what matters most to you. Is it your dad, yourself, or the other people in your life that depend on your emotional state like your mom and brother that really matter the most?

If you don't need all the negativity that is you Dad then really no one can blame you. You do have the choice to tell him no, that you don't want him in your life. You can tell him that he needs to find help elsewhere. You can tell him how you honestly feel. And if you still don't have the confidence to tell him no, then I'm sure your mom can tell him for you in a way that won't hurt his feelings.

Anyways sorry I know that reply was long and lengthy. No matter what happens I hope things work out for the best for you. :)

I don't appreciate chain mail on my page and I will not tolerated it. I find chain mail to be extremely emotionally manipulative, rude, and malicious especially if they involve any threats to anyone. Please stop.

I highly doubt I'd be able to talk to you about my problems, because I know that you will scream at me and call me an attentionwhore just like everyone else who tells me that I can talk to them. Good day.

In the end, what's the bloody point of talking to someone about problems? I'll either get called an attentionwhore or be advised to do things I absolutely hate.

I undestand that most people do that, so its obvious you think Im just the same, the difference is that..at least I DONT WANT TO BE LIKE THAT :XD: the capital was to put it clear, not that I was angry.

Well, it may not have a point, but sometimes is good to talk about things we feel or live to calm us, the people cant judge somneone they dont know (even If they know him/her) just because theyve not lived their lives, at least I think that. :P
And ..hmm, I dont know wish kind of advices they gave to you, but maybe they didnt work beacuse they tryed to fix the problem befor knowing what was the problem. =)
