Man in the Street

by alaa

I get angry when anyone tells me I am the reason of any problem - maybe sometimes but not in all situations. When I walk in the street and anyone talks to me in a bad way, I say that I am the reason cuz I wear that (many times I am like any girl in the street). I think I am a hooker and come home and still cry until I want to sleep. So I go to sleep and when I wake up, I'm still angry and maybe cry again. I don't want to go outside and didn't want to go anywhere. When my friends call I don't answer. I don't think you can help but maybe you can.

Be Kind to Yourself
by: Candi

Hello Alaa,

Let me see if I am understanding your story correctly. Sometimes when you walk down the street people talk to you in a way you don't like. When this happens you have been blaming yourself, even though you are dressed the same way as anyone else walking on the street. You cry yourself to sleep, and when you wake up again you still feel angry. You don't want to go out and aren't answering the phone when your friends call. Is this right?

It sounds like you are feeling very down, angry, and sad. You are isolating yourself and that must be very lonely. You aren't enjoying life very much.

I'm sorry you are experiencing such a depressed mood. I'm not sure if I can offer any help, besides to tell you that I hear your story and recognize the pain you must be feeling emotionally.

I think you need your friends right now, and I hope that when your friends call you DO answer. Better yet, I hope you call them. You need someone to talk to who can be there for you and try to understand what you are going through.

I hope you talk with a good friend or a counselor who can help you change the negative thoughts you are having about yourself, and instead see yourself in a more positive way.

You deserve to be kind to yourself and to ignore the unkind things that others may say.
