Another reason why more people may not talk about their issues, and this is also true of me, is that other people don't know about you're talking about so they stare blankly and try to relate based on their frame of reference. For example, if I were to say that watching a sunrise or sunset doesn't do anything for me, I may get blank stares and insistence that it really does and I just need to get in touch with my feelings. Another example would be when I say I don't know what love is and doubt I have ever or will ever feel what other people express as love, I'll get more admonitions that I've got to feel more or eventually my emotions will burst like a dam. Except, that's not how my brain works.
I've lost the last ~5 days to a bout of depression, though I'm starting to feel better now. I've posted a couple of private entries about it, not wanting to clog up your feed with negative posts or to alarm anyone into hitting the panic button, but the gist of it is a redux of many of the things noted in this previous entry. I'm remembering some of the realizations and resolutions that came about from that post as well so that's helping.
