it seems to go in fits and starts, loads of activity then it will go quite for a while.
i know what u mean abut communicating, ive never had any1 i could open up to yet people always seem open up to me. makes u feel used after a while :/
the biggest thing that helped me was doing a personality test, helped me to understand the way i think and seen things (im an INTP). im more logical than emotional so i struggle with emotions.
good thing about the internet is that ur pretty much anonymous on sites like this so u can say what u like. people on here will only try and help tho and will NOT judge u!!
