My childhood was very hard. My parents were eccentric, overly religious and poor. Many of the kids at school teased and bullied me. I never fit in and I never had very many friends. When I did make a friend I usually did whatever that person wanted just so I would have a friend. This led to many unhealthy relationships. This has left me very sensitive and weak as an adult. Whenever people make the slightest negative comment I find myself withdrawing instantly. I usually find a quite place and cry. I also tend to give into other people to seek their approval. Later I scold myself saying why could I not stand up for myself. Either way I end up sad and alone. My husband gets annoyed with me because I constantly want reassurance and affection. I know I can be an emotional drain but I really need his attention. Does anyone else ever feel like this?
