I don't know how to have friends. I don't know how to be a friend. I don't know how to form a friendship without eventually letting my anxiety tank what's left of it.

      I don't have any real friends either, I find it so hard to make friends n when I do they just tend to disappear on me without any explanation,

      Its easier to find simular people with anxiety, depression etc. The reason why is if your friends they stay friends even if you forget to message or don't want to go out or whatnot. We understand and are in the same boat but it doesn't make us bad friends.

      I was texting someone I met on a night out (girl to be a friend) the texts went back n forth, as soon as I asked them to get a coffee all texts stopped.

      I don’t care what we talk about, how often we talk, if it’s happy or sad, as long as you don’t give me one word answers and make me carry the conversation I will be the most loyal friend. I have no object permanence and an insane level of highs and lows so I’m not perfect at responding all the time but I will always do my best! Dm if you want to talk!

      I relate to this so hard, I’m sorry. Maybe this is a good place to meet friends who are more understanding?

      I don't know how to make friends. I don't know how to keep friends. But my friendship is making sure the other person is as happy as possible.

        @IceGoddess I try and do the same, but not at the expense of them blatantly not giving a shit about my feelings. I know that's vaguely specific but... I'm just tired of these wounds getting reopened.

          @fix.this.later I don't think the wounds have enough time to heal before they get hit again. Finding out no one has ever truly cared about you.... Or at least on the way that you need them to.
