The more I regress/withdraw from the world, the more I find my own inner workings and perceptions to be more interesting than actually interacting with people. I used to be an academic with parents who still hold high hopes of my societal “success.” I’m not interested in pleasing them anymore. But I know how crushing it would be to my friends and family if I regressed into a silent bystander of this world. Although, with time, I’m not sure I would even mask my way out if I was threatened with being institutionalized if I didn’t get “better.” I’m just feeling really content with myself, but it makes a mess of reality when I consider things outside of myself. Lots of existential questions without answers, and I’m kinda just chilling with the weirdness.

      I get what you mean for years I was so sociable people oriented loved hanging around my friends but this past year I just withdrew and I've become this introverted introspected version of myself I used to be very withdrawn from the world in my preteen years and I have to say I've learned alot more about my inner workings as well

      Wow I can really relate to some of this. On one hand, I think it's really good that you're content with yourself; but I'm sure your friends and family still want to have you around often and interact with you. I know that for me, I've been trying to find a balance between giving myself the rest and space that I need, and spending time with my loved ones in ways that are best accommodated for me (for example, having coffee together instead of spending a whole day away from the house where I could get sensory overload). I hope everything works out for you :)

      See a psychiatrist. They know which drugs are the answer.
