Found an old document.
Those who say "discuss your feeling, reach out, etc" are lying to you. Chances are they don't care about themselves. You will never become emotionally composed that way, rather run to a friend or to an emotional support animal whenever someone calls you fat.
These weak men and women are implanting expectations in your psyche of how others should treat you. But no one is obligated to conduct himself that way. If you allow yourself to harbor those expectations, you are bound to be disappointed in almost every relationship and social interaction. You are bound to be pathetic. Therefore, let go of all expectations. Allow others the freedom to conduct themselves the way they want to. The moment you let go of your expectations from people, you are a free man.
The reason people say all that weak shit is that it resonates with the youth who have a lot of struggles on their plates. It sounds good and compassionate. It creates an atmosphere in which the youth can celebrate their collective misery, instead of growing above it. Don't allow that to happen to you. Let go of all the lies society has told you. Let go of all that popular culture, teachers, and colleges have told you.
Feel free to tell your problems, but hold no expectations. If they cared, give them gratitude. If they didn't, understand they are not obligated to. No one is here for you. You were born alone and will die alone. Take that as given.
