I am sure you sharing your feelings also helps others, thus saving them too. :hugs:
Has it? that would be amazing

Sharing difficult times creates bonds between humans. Having someone listen to your problems theoretically:
a) Makes you feel cared for
b) Enables you to solve them if the listener is mature and can look at it in an objective way
However this is only a short term solution. In the long run only solving the problem (or not caring about it any more) will help. For example if you’re frustrated at not being able to find a gf/bf (a common problem I get complaints about) the only solution is to find one or train yourself to not bother. Otherwise you keep thinking about/repeating the same thing...
I dont think people really do care at the end of the day.

If you talked with someone about debt and financial problems to a millionaire and they gave you money, it works, otherwise it’s pointless

I'm just wondering if anyone feels the same. We're all told that if we talk about our problems we feel better but whether it's in therapy or with a friend or even on here I only end up feeling worse.

op you are very much correct.

talking about your problems doesn't help, solving them does.

unfortunately, the majority of people just want to talk about things and they have zero interest in solving their problems.
True but some problems don't have solutions like mental illness. But talking doesn't seem to help either.

I find it difficult to talk and share with people also.
I find it easier to write down my thoughts/feelings in a journal and refer back to it to track my mood/progress.
Maybe that will help if anyone else finds it difficult to talk...
