It's a sign of weakness and isn't attractive.

Problem is people who are affected don't have the right tools or skills to manage the inner turbulence so it slowly and slowly kills them from the inside.
This is true based on how we measure others and judge others in society.
We always believe ourselves and others to have full control of our destiny.
This is a great lie of the Ego.
There are people who seemingly are tougher by sweeping things under the carpet,mental affirmations,big egos and downright lack of shame but left unresolved may pop back up again at some future time.
Really also depends on ones balance of the carnal with the spiritual in life.
The carnal is very pleasurable but only satisfies for a season while the spiritual may last a longer time, affecting character and life more positively.
Both also affect ambition,ego size,contentment,ethics as in "at any cost" etc.
Experiences though are meant to help us in the long run and possibly bring us closer to the source.
It really depends on how one reacts to the experience.
Some buckle under the pressure and lack of support while some grab the bull by the horns and deal with it head on.
It comes down to inner strength, Glass half empty or half full, the actual degree or extent of trauma in the experience, and off course what has already accumulated in ones life thus far, making one equipped or not to handle it.
Some of us may be "spared" experiences others may have or have less depressing ones, because we learn early in life our life's divine purpose and develop and grow towards it, instead of settling into the mindset of what is for him/her is for me as well in the carnal life.

Usually, people who are afraid of being weak are the ones who do not want to be around "weak" people.

Hmm yeah. Being reasonably on guard is important cuz not everyone values the same thing. Being vulnerable is a good thing but it cheapens the value if not cautious. Some got bigger walls, others got smaller. I’d be cool if their weren’t any but the way different breeds of intentions that are alive makes it tricky for both wo/men.

Truthfully, I find this thread depressing and is making me depressed.

There is so much negativity in the world, in the news and in life in general that to go seeking out more in these types of discussions just makes it worse. Just read this discussion thread and you will see why people are depressed or getting depressed.

Life is life. You make the best of what you got and you carry forward. You look for the best in the things that you run into in life and don't dwell on the negative. Make " realistic " goals and celebrate your accomplishments.

Try to get along with people and concentrate your times on positive people.

If something bad happens, just deal with it. Don't overthink things and don't what if things.

Just enjoy your life, your friends, your family and be happy with what you have.
