No excuse, but a reason: I suck at giving words of support. Y'all are having problems that I really don't understand- not from a lack of description, but my lack of comprehension. I just don't know all sides of a situation, and I can't infer it. I don't fit in, and I don't understand a lot about society- I can't even figure out what's going on.
I don't know what to say that's both comforting and helpful- and I just general-purpose don't post one-line messages of sympathy because, sincere as they always are, they just seem... wrong, somehow.
I hate it. I hate not being able to be there for others. It's not because I don't care.
Please know this: if I don't respond to a message of problems you're facing, things you need help and consolation with, it's not for lack of caring. It's because I just don't know what to say.
