Hey, I've been struggling with depression lately and I have this friend who's been helping me through it by talking about my depression with me. but lately my mental health has declining and our relationship has been getting more and more intense and one sided with me and him talking about my issues several times a week.
A few weeks ago a chat got really heavy and since then he seems like he's distancing himself from me. I know he's dealing with some mental health issues of his own and he wouldn't say it but I think he's pulling away because I've been asking too much of him.
I've decided to try and reduce my dependency on him but I don't know what to say.
I've talked to him openly about how I feel like a burden to the people aroubd me and I don't want to let him know he's really made me feel that way.
I want to apologize and let him know I understand that I've been asking too much and not giving anything back lately but I also want to avoid making him feel guilty for pulling away.
Any tips for apologising to someone you've asked too mich of?
