madrigal Posted November 14, 2009 Share Posted November 14, 2009 I have been calling this lady on a hot line, for several years now. Always before, she was effective, no matter what I was calling about. She nursed me through some serious suicidal intentions, listened to me blab on and on about my fucked up childhood, etc. She has been aware of my slow and painful climb from fear of dating, to finally starting to date again. And yet, when I shared about my happiness with a new guy after so many years of being afraid to try, I get this lukewarm comment: "Well, if that makes you happy..." Delivered in this disdainful voice, as if I had shared my predilection for dumpster diving or something. WTF is up with that? I thought that she would be happy for me. Not that I need her happiness to exist, but I am really disappointed in her response. Now I feel that a huge door has just been slammed in my face. I hesitate to call anymore. So, hotline counselors SUCK BIG TIME! Extreme, I know. But that's how I feel right now. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
