I have been worrying about my roommate a lot lately. I know he has his own issues with depression and anxiety, so anytime he seems quiet or down I start to worry. I know how depression can feel, so I just wish that I could help him somehow feel better. It kills me to think someone I care about is going through something and there is nothing I can really do to help. I wan’t to ask him if he is okay and let him know that he can talk to me, but I also fear that I am just projecting my own feelings onto him and that he will just think that its weird that I would be worried about him that much. A part of me wonders if he’s just being quiet because he is bored of being around me and doesn’t have much to talk about with me. I wan’t to talk to him about my own depression, but I never know how to start that conversation. It never seems to be the right moment, or I don’t want to bother anyone with my dumb problems when they clearly have their own to worry about. I also have a really hard time having “real” conversations with people. I have a been avoiding my own issues and hiding how I really feel on the inside for so long that I don’t even know how to deal with any of it. I just continue to avoid both my own problems and the problems of those around me simply because I just don’t know how to respond to anything that even resembles or comes close to real emotion.

I don’t know if any of this makes any sense to anyone else, but I appreciate the opportunity this site gives me to try and get some of my thoughts out of my head and into words so that I can at least try to make some sense of them.

    I’m glad you had the chance to let out your thoughts as well.

    As far as your roommate, sometimes it can be nice for someone to just ask “how are you?”
