Almost never, which is a big reason why I don't talk, which makes it more difficult to be heard... It's a vicious circle.

do you feel that you are heard when you try to talk to people about how you feel?

I don’t talk to people about my feelings usually, but when I do, I almost always regret it.

do you feel your feelings are taken into consideration?

The answer varies greatly from each person in my life. One is generally indifferent and tends to prioritize his input over my perception of everything. One is too vain and self-absorbed to acknowledge a human experience that doesn’t place her at the center. One tries to listen when it matters most and is more honest about feeling helpless instead of blaming and shaming me. Another prods me a few times a year to think about my education, career, what I plan to do with my life, which I suppose is his way of caring.

do you feel that your emotions are valid?

Not anymore than that of a pebble.

do you feel that you wellbeing is looked after?

Not by me nor anyone. That would be inconvenient.

do you feel that you are heard when you try to talk to people about how you feel?

Not always. But sometimes I'm vague because I hate being open about some things. It leads me to doing sort of desperate things online (looking for attention)...

do you feel your feelings are taken into consideration?

Sometimes. And probably more than I realize since I'm lucky enough to have really empathetic friends in my life.

do you feel that your emotions are valid?

No. I feel my emotions have led to negative actions, and then I berate myself for all of it.

do you feel that you wellbeing is looked after?

Actually yes. Again, I have good friends. I'm lucky.
