Meeting people online
 
The problem with meeting people from an online source is that when you need to chatter online about things you're feeling - they see. And you may not be ready for them to see until you've worked it out (at which point it may be irrelevant) and part of the working out process is posting to get other view points.

Talking helps sort confusions out - but what do you do when you can't talk?

I do a lot of journaling. Its something I do when I have processes to vent. I usually do this before I talk so I can figure out where my feeling lie. This tends to happen more when I am confused, angry or stressed. I rarely feel the need to journal when I am doing well :)

You could also use your friends. Thats what they are there for. :)

Suck ass when I can't post online what I need to. Blogging doesn't work - I like to hear other peoples opinions - it helps me clarify things in my own head.

Fuck me.

Can you PM people who you trust rather than just posting it openly? It would be like talking to friends that way, you're still going to get feedback but not everyone needs to know your buisness that way :)

I have reached out to a few people - and hopefully it will be enough. I'm just used to being able to post in an open forum, yanno?
