Is it normal to feel uncomfortable talking about emotional stuff?
Okay, heres the thing. I describe myself as unempathetic. When someone I care about going through something difficult or see them cry in front of me, I just cringe and don't know what to do. I just want to get out from that position/situation. I just hug them awkwardly with a straight unempathetic face and say nothing to comfort them. I don't feel bad for them at all, no matter how hard I try to feel so. And I HATE being like this. I want to be more empathetic, I want to be like someone people can open up to. I feel useless as a friend and a family.
What should I do? Does anyone feel the same way as I do (or to some extent)?
