there anything you have a hard time dealing with?My stepdad may have cirrhosis of
Gahanna, OH USA The only thing I really have a hard time dealing with is grief. When everyone else is crying, I'm usually just standing around wishing I could cry. Actually, emotions as a whole are something I have a difficult time dealing with...I feel like they betray me all too often. Angela, 16
Bella Vista, AR USA Yes. Karen, 21
Marshalltown/Ames, IA USA Abuse to children and animals, especially systemic abuse. Laura, 36
Lowell, MA USA There are days when I find living takes a great deal of energy--and brings few positive results. Jill, 60
Saylorsburg, PA USA Conflict Felicia, 35
Lowell, MA USA I've learned to cope with most things, but I find deliberate deceit hard to deal with. Jane, 60
West Linn, OR USA Becoming an adult.... it just feels weird knowing that in only a few years i could be married, have a career, and maybe even kids of my own! Dianne, 16
Yes. Good God yes. Today was the most amazing day I've had in such a long time. A blind date with the most beautiful girl I think I've ever met. She drove two hours to meet me. Turns out she lied about being 18. She's 16. And you know what? I really don't care. This girl could talk to me. She was beautiful. Her eyes were like nothing I have ever seen. They just kinda looked right into me. This girl is so fantasically unique and it was just like we were on the same wavelength. So now for the thing I have a hard time dealing with. She's not here now! And I'm not going to see her for I don't know how long because she lives quite a ways away. Arg! Give me solidarity!
Well, I think I would have a hard time with the death of a family member or friend. I have never been to a funeral and don't know how I would handle it.
Where do I begin? I have a hard time dealing with myself, basically. And I don't even want to get into it. So, I'll just leave it at that.
I have a hard time with people treating people the wrong way. Especially if people are good to others. It seems like today no one appreciates what others might sacrifice to do for them. People are not appreciative today.
When I was a teenager, I suffered a bit of brain damage. It didn't bother me then but as I get older, I'm finding I have real memory, balance, and coordination problems. I find those things hard to deal with as it seems like I can do fewer things each day.
Reverse descrimination, dishonesty, abandonment, drunk driving - sure, plenty of things are hard to deal with.
Confrontation with people I know. Strangers? Bring 'em on.... I'll argue, cuss and fight, but friends, family or coworkers? I just don't have the stomach for it. I actually feel nauseated when I feel conflict coming on.
Yeah, bosses who talk down to you...I HATE THAT!
Embarrassment, screaming children, large, dense crowds.
Lots of things--this is a very general question. Right now I'm having a hard time dealing with one of my aunts because her father, my grandfather is dying, and she chose the occasion on which he was dying to guilt trip me about not writing her. So I'm having a hard time both with her and my grandfather dying. And I'm also having a hard time choosing between colleges.
Cruelty. Vulgarity. Insensitivity. Disapointment. Feet.
STUPIDITY. I seriously think I'm allergic to stupidity. And there's just so MUCH of it out there!! Oh, and there's also the problem of not knowing which guy to date.
