Ok. So you think you have friends and tell them that you are not feeling well. Two of them take you out for an afternoon coffee and they start lecturing you about how you should not feel this way or that way; how you should do this or that. And when you react to what they say (which is mostly not relevant to me or the situation I am in), they mention that your perception of things and their efforts are affected by you not feeling well, and as such, is distorted.
Well.. Well.. Well..
In order to understand the person across from you, you must first listen to, rather than questioning or lecturing. Over-generalization of everybody and every situation is NOT a good practice. I understand that my friends were trying to be “friends” and “helping”, but this is not the best way to demonstrate these.
I rather wished my friends asked me how I think they could help or what I would need from them.
Let’s keep this in mind next time when we have a friend who is going through a stressful time.
On a separate note, I am glad that I stood up to my grounds and expressed myself.
