I feel guilty around a person i know, are they are making me feel that way?
Feeling guilty, meaning in expressing my own needs, wants, desires, opinions, etc. I hold back, it feels like there is this weight on me, holding me down, I attribute that to guilt.
This has happened at work. Sometimes I think it's triggered by their behavior or something they say or do in respond to something I'm asking or wanting.
I hate this feeling. It's pretty constant at times and it definitely makes me feel like I'm not being myself or not normal.
I have felt this way around a few other close people I know as well. And it feels like this low, sucking feeling as well. Numb. A little heavy.
Somewhere I read said it was because they are making me feel guilty. For doing something, or for being myself, ETC. Opinions, thoughts?
Maybe the tell-tale sign is that I don't feel this way around other people or strangers. Or other situations, mostly... and it really is linked with me speaking up for myself or asking what I want, and sometimes it's debilitating where I feel stuck and can't even mutter the words...
