    I know this is really hard for a lot of people, but I think what helps he most is joining groups that hold your personal interest. Groups that meet up in your area. Social anxiety can especially make this difficult, but once you get to that point it can be easier than one thinks once you make contact with other people.

        me too. If you don't mind me asking, are you gay or straight? I'm gay.

    SAME. making friends in the real world as an adult is so hard

    • KratomEater

      for sure I’ve been in a new town in Alaska for 2 years and I’ve yet to make a good friend. And the ones I attempted to never held.

    Just be nice

      not sure if this is a reply to my comment, but I’m always really nice to people. I think kindness goes a long way. It’s just with work and helping my partner start a business it’s just been impossible.

    Same. I wish there was a decent support group close to me where I could meet people who also struggle with some of the same things I do. I would love to have a friend to encourage each other to get out and do things occasionally or maybe start going to a gym with. It's very difficult to find friends when you struggle severely with your mental health.

      very true. Most my friends are online. I have a few that I know in real life but not in the same location anymore. I have a few people at work I call friends. Texting now and then but haven’t gone out with for any reason. I had a neighbor start up a conversation with me. She is a good person and we have gone out shopping

      • Harlie

        Same, most of my friends are people from xbox that don't even live in the same country as me. I love having someone to talk to but it's easy to cut them off when I'm very depressed bc they're not close enough to call or come over. I also want to start going to a gym for my physical and mental health but don't want to go alone. Would love to have a local friend who wanted to go too.

    Friends really aren’t everything as long as you work on uplifting your vibrations then you’ll be able to attract the people in your life that won’t deceive you or prey on your weaknesses sending love and light 🧘🏽

    Mentally ill people could all sit on one room together, and yet still feel so alone and isolated is the crappy thing about this. However we tend to be able to nurse each others wounds and support each other as no one else will. So as we piece others together with glue while we ourselves are still falling apart till someone starts to glue us then someone else glues them etc. Mentally ill people get Mentally ill people. They know the isolation and loneliness that comes with it. But we make the best friends and supporters of our kind. Everybody's issues are different and even if we share similarities we will always have differences too.

    Same I have a very small circle of friends. I recently had to sever one of those really close ties the relationship had been toxic for so long but I always made excuses for her. I am completely heartbroken about it 😞

    The same here I got a few friends at work we text here and there, but nothing hanging out or anything. My other friends are are on here and I have Instagram stuff like that that’s it.

    If you want friends, be a friend. Be the person you’d like to have as a friend. And be that friend to yourself

      • KingKoopa85

        51d

        doing ok, thank you for asking

  • Crispybuffalo145

    Same. I lost all my friends because my panic disorder. Noe I have to start over and I was never good at making friends in the first place…it’s like a new job your first impression is everything

    • KingKoopa85

      50d

      i don't know that i agree with that only because the people i connect with are consistent at sharing and talking, first impressions don't phase me, but that's maybe because I'm 6 foot 4 dude with huge gauges and a septum ring. I love all people. Regardless of the first impression. We are all going through something and I'm here for each and every one of you. 🧡

      • Crispybuffalo145

        50d

        on I’m sure I’m wrong about the first impression thing, it’s just the anxiety in me that never fails to make me think it

  • KingKoopa85

    50d

    that's totally normal, you are never wrong for thinking that way, just know that even if the first time you say hi to someone isn't what makes you who you are.

  • Cuz

    50d

    That’s very true

    people do care you just dont see it, life is like a rollecoaster with ups and downs like a heart beat up and down..nothing lasts forever things do get better

  • ShyLovePuppet

    Ah sameeee, I can start conversations and stuff but it always goes that the other person never want to make a stronger connection and become only once in a blue moon interactions. Somehow that makes me feel even lonelier 🥲

    • Teardrops

      42d

      I get that. I am one who reaches out to people all the time but very few will contact me.
