I answered yesterday the Yahoo question: "What are the different reasons that make situations and conditions seen as a Problem or as a challenge?" with the following:

I experience the subject of your question strongly at my present life situation: I'm tired of people. I know that being with people is a challenge and I see it like this, but at the same time it is a problem because I simply have enough! Yes, I am aware that this has to do with my expectation how I would like people to be and then confronting people who are every thing else but not like this. Probably I don't want to see the reality and so clinging on an image that comes from my upbringing, when I was told that humans in their essence are good, honest, brave, caring, loving and all those other beautiful things. Now I am experiencing in a close encounter, that hardly anything of this is real and true. People are dishonest, they lie and pretend, they suck, steal and cheat whenever they can, they are cowered hiding or escaping, but not confronting a problem. Caring? They don't even take care of themselves, doing all kind of damaging things. Loving? They are projecting some emotions out of their needs and then call it 'love'. How can love exist between people like this?
That is the daily reality I have to deal with. So I need to protect myself constantly and I don't want this. I want to be open to people and have a real communication, - that seems not possible. People don't listen, they just want, in the best case, express themselves with the purpose to receive confirmation for their self image. I'm getting tired of this and don't want to be with people that suck my energy. That's my problem that I don't want this kind of challenge any more. What might be a creative solution?

I answered this yesterday and this morning I woke up with depressions, what is kind of new for me. Is this because I have moved something that is too much for me to deal with? I do every day meditation and yoga, I like it and it feels good to do it, but I don't know if this really helps, although I don't know how I would be without doing it. I am confused and don't see what I could do for a solution, it's a problem now for me and I can't see it as a challenge. Can some body give me an answer that gives me a hint to get out of this? I see Yahoo Answers as a great place, there are people who not just hunt points, but really care for others. That there are people like this gives hope. Thank you!
