How do you deal with being hurt? When I get hurt by someone, I get....

Everyone deals with emotional pain in different ways. I thought it may be enlightening to compare the feelings and means of dealing with hurt, to see just how others cope and compare it to how you cope.

Angry, depressed, withdrawn, and bitter. I don't cope well, but should you really have to cope well when individuals betray you?

I get angry and emotional. But I normally get over it after a while or when I talk to someone about it.

I'm a deeply feeling person and experience a broad range of emotions; anger, depression, bitterness, etc. I become withdrawn and feel extremely lost, especially when it's someone really close to me.

I get moody, withdrawn and feel alone. Unable to deal with conflicts directly I pull in on myself until I'm in a better frame of mind, usually 2 days until I figure a rational way to deal with it passively.

I'm not very good with dealing with being hurt. I get extremely depressed. I tend to lock myself away from everyone for a while. I end up feeling like I'm alone and will always be alone.

I get confused.

I don't understand why people do the things they do, so I spend lots of time talking about situations and trying to get answers. It annoys the crap out of people who have to listen to me though. But since I have to listen to them... It's pretty fair in my eyes!

I mostly withdraw and regroup. In most cases I find that resurrecting the old will never happen - so I take time to let my self grieve and heal, then move forward. To me the grieving and healing have to be done more or less in private - and not complicated by new relationships.

It depends on the person and what was done. My main ones are emotional, moody, and withdrawn though.

I dont really stop to think about it when someone hurts me. I guess it does not bother me very much.

Depends on the situation, every occasion is different for me. Usually when I'm upset in general, I want to be alone for a while, then I get a weird spike of desperately wanting social interaction. If I don't get both, I unintentionally end up sulking longer.

It depends what happened and how bad it was or how hurt I am. When it's really bad I usually go through stages like I'll be sad, then confused, then mad, then sad again, then withdrawn, then mad, then drunk, then sad, then drunk, and so on lol. Eventually I get better, but I haven't been that hurt in a few years. Last time it was an almost endless cycle for about six months...my ex is an asshole... *rolls eyes*

I default to anger pretty quickly, as well as outrage, one, at them for being despicable, & two, at myself for not seeing it coming/avoiding it/letting it happen, etc. I withdraw from them, but not other people, I process better talking about it. In general, I have set up strong barriers over the years to avoid being hurt, because I have had to, I'm very sensitive. So, not much hurts me, nor do people know how to really hurt me. But, when it does happen, I always try to learn from it; I like to understand why/how it happened & thus prevent a similar thing happening in the future, or at least know how to deal with it if it does.

too many of those to just choose a few, I've been dealing with rejection for so long I thought I'd get a bit more used to it, but I don't
