does anybody else feel really alone, yet you still want to be left alone? I don't know what to do with these feelings and I don't really understand them myself. I feel so alone, but I also don't want anyone to bother me. It sounds harsh but even talking to people is so exhausting. I wish I could just wake up one day and everything magically be okay.

      I was at a point in my life I was so miserable and so lonely but whenever someone would try and be there and comfort me I just snapped at them. I was just so miserable I felt like I was a bother to them and I had nothing to offer in return. It’s taken me a long time but I think for me at least it might not be wanting to be left alone as much as wanting it to be a low energy conversation. Some people takes little to no energy and other take a lot. It can be hard to navigate the feeling that come with depression but trust me friend you are not along with how you feel

      I have dealt with similar feelings frequently. I believe my problems stem from both not wanting to be a burden, and not trusting those around me. I’m not sure if this is what you’re feeling, but just know if your family or those closest to you are not providing the support you need, it’s possible to find people outside that will understand and be kind to you. I hope whatever you’re struggling with eases soon ❤️

      Online gaming helped me a lot with this feeling, because I don't have to have a mic on and I don't have to talk to anyone, most games have quickchats for in-game strategizing. I still got to play with other actual people though, and if you can handle the times when people are toxic theres a lot of times when people are awesome too, Ive found people that I vibe with and consistently play with now

      Your welcome! It can be exhausting keeping a conversation going when your already so wiped out from depression and whatever else you may be going through. It’s okay to take time for self care and recharging you social battery because it can be really hard and it’s okay to need that down time we all do just sometimes in our lives we need more than other times and that’s completely fine ❤️

      thank you so much for your kind words friend! and you are totally right, I try to talk to friends sometimes but its so hard for me to keep the conversation going and I eventally crawl back into isolation. It's nice to hear that I'm not alone ❤️
