Ok, I've been searching all over the net trying to research this type of condition so I'm just wondering if maybe you guys can point me in a good direction. I'm trying to do my own research, I can't really afford therapy unfortunately, so here's the story.
I love my family and friends dearly, but it makes me so uncomfortable when people say they love me, or express love for me. I can actually feel my body tense up when they say they love me.
I realize this seems like self esteem issues, and I don't know if this is quite that. I say that because I really do love and respect myself, I'm proud of who I am, but for whatever reason, I just don't expect others to.
Any ideas as to what might be going on?
