  2. When you say you are not fine and start talking people dismiss and ignore you. Nobody wants to hear your problems and sometimes they seem angry your life isn't perfect and you are "ruining their day" with your complaining. Not everyone is obligated to listen to you but sometimes it's hard to find an compassionate soul.
