Hello, friends! In this episode, I answer two questions that focus on how to ask for help when you’re unsure of what to say, and learning to express your thoughts, struggles and feelings to your loved ones.
Hey Duff, Im an 18 year old male and I have no idea what’s going on with me. I always have this sinking feeling in my stomach. I can’t sleep and I always feel so alone even with people that I love. I want to ask for help but I have no idea what to say when they ask what’s wrong with me. Thank you for the podcast it really has helped me understand a lot.
Hello, I’m going to try and keep my situation short and concise as it has been going on for 2 years. When the pandemic started I began isolating myself severely and never really broke out of it. This isolation lead to more problems like a short temper, worsening anxiety, and trouble communicating properly when in conflict. My girlfriend and I recently broke up for the second time and I never had it in me to really tell her what was going on with me. It caused major issues in our communication, and this made her believe I was just not compatible for her. She has her own anxieties which made things more difficult. I guess I’m reaching out to know what I can do in the future when I need to express the way I’m feeling, and express that it is not who I am. Thank you
