Yesterday was a weird day for me, and I guess that's why I am on here now. I felt so many emotions and thoughts and just begin to feel overwhelmed with them. A little over four years ago my Dad passed and it was sudden, so that definitely was hard for me; but for some reason I still feel a lot of grief. I have a Beautiful Three year old who is a Blessing and a partner (not my daughters father) who helps a great deal, but I still feel a lot of stress when thinking about my Dad and life. My daughter helps, but I can only interact with her on certain levels which is mostly through play of course, so I feel that partner gets the most weight of my load. When it comes to loneliness, stress, anxiety, and comfort. Due to me not having much family and then on top of that not being close with them, I feel like I cling to my partner like white on rice. I unconditionally Love him, and I feel that makes it very hard for me to just be. I do give him his space and let him have his own life, but when he is not around or if I am having a bad day, my anxiety goes up the roof; and I feel like I need him cause he is my safe place....

@kvolm2016 I do have a couple of close friends in my life right now, but it's weird. I Love them dearly, but no two people think alike.... So certain things I can bring up to them and certain things I can't...

@Triangle77 Try not to depend on your partner for self reliance. You need to know that you are strong; that you are capable of doing so much more without relying on another human being. That is the difference between healthy and poor self esteem.

@Misunderstood1 Glad you do have those good friends! And I get what you mean about still having to filter even with them.
