I hate dealing with bad situations. It's my weakness, and I know it, but whenever something bad happens, I say something like "Ponies are cute' or "do you want some chocolate?" , then I just block out the bad parts.
Well, a friend of mine is going through some bad times and I feel bad b/c I'm not really helping her get through it. I let her talk, then after she's done talking I change the subject to something light, but I don't actually talk back to her--I don't know what to say and I don't wanna say the wrong thing, but I do listen.
I feel horrible for not being better at this, but I've had my share of bad situation and I guess my brain's just not ready for more.
But I really do feel horrible.
