Why no one understands you
July 15, 2013
Do you have the feeling no one understands you? Even though your friends or your family might say they do, or they might relate to you with a similar experience, but it doesn't feel quite comparable?
Strictly speaking, you're right. Every relationship, and every breakup is fundamentally unique. You should not be disappointed, nor surprised, if no one understands you. No one is supposed to understand you. At least not completely.
At the same time there is a lot you are going through, that others can relate to. In fact, it's likely that you have people close to you that went through a very comparable situation. Not feeling understood and feeling alone in your pain is not unique to you, it is one of the symptoms of a breakup!
Not feeling understood and feeling alone in your pain is not unique to you, it is one of the symptoms of a breakup.
Start viewing "not being understood" as the symptom which it is. You haven't been opening up yourself enough to your friends. You haven't given them the chance to understand you. Don't make the mistake in thinking they can't.
