Dependency on others
2 Replies
kvc33 - September 19

I depend on others for emotional, financial and practical support. Because of that I'm afraid to stick up for myself if someone mistreats me because I'm afraid of losing them. I simply can not cope with this illness all alone. I want to be strong and say whatever I need to but if I were abandoned by the people I rely on I wouldn't even have enough money for food. I would go crazy with isolation and loneliness and have no one to look after me when I'm so tired that I'm having difficulty breathing. It's even too hard for me to stand up to someone whom I'm not dependent upon. I just don't need further upset when I'm already exhausted and in pain.

I am extremely dependent on my parents and friends as well. I don't think I could make it on my own either.

The funny thing about life, is that things always work out, and if you didn't have these people to rely on you would find a way to make it. Many of us don't realize how strong we really are until we are forced to be strong.
Just because you rely on someones help, does not mean that person has the right to mistreat you or be mean to you, but as long as you back down and take it, it will never end. Some people may be clueless that they are hurting you, but they will never know if you don't tell them. And if you were to stick up for yourself and nicely explain that they are hurting you, if they leave you then they were not a reliable person to begain with, or someone you could really trust.
