Need help with a coworker…
So one of my colleagues have a hard time. She broke up with her boyfriend, and her hole life is mixed around. I understand that it’s a hard time for her, but she talks about it all the time and it really bums me out, it have a really bad effect on my c-PTSD. Her hard time have lasted for months.
I know that my C-PTSD don’t give me the only-right to have a bad time, but she never wants to talk to me about my problems, to cheer me up and when I have tried talking about it, she doesn’t care. Her most often response is like “that’s life 🤷🏼♀️”
I’m a really emotional person, so I listen to her problems and try to show support.
But now I’m just tired, you know? I’m like, “yea, it is hard for you that you need to provide for yourself now..” and in the same time I’m thinking; “well I have always provided for myself.. my hole body hurts.. life seems meaningless.. It’s about 13:00 o’clock and I have already thought about running away or if life is worth living, because it would be easier not being here…. - and nobody of you guys care! But yea, so sad that YOU broke up with him…”
Everybody gives big fucks for her problems.. and yea, I’m maybe a bit jealous, because it would be nice if people cared just a tiny bit about my problems, but I’m always looked at as I’m so “young and dramatic”… and it’s very fucking rare that I talk of my problems…
How to fix this problem? I want to tell her in a good way, that I can’t hear about her problems all day long.. it’s making me so damn depressed.. but I don’t want it to sound like I’m the “only one against her”. I just want some balance.. I’m the coworker who use most time with her. The others meet her 1 or 2 times a week. I’m with her 4 days a week. #CPTSD #needadvice happy summer to you all❤️
