    I am so depressed

    I'll try to think some more on that. :) I hate your friend already. :p

    Introduction, but not without social anxiety advice.

    Interesting theory, and welcome!

    I am so depressed

    Hmm... I know that people that suffer from autism may have trouble making eye contact. Not saying you suffer from it necessarily. Interesting to know that about you, in any case!

    I am so depressed

    I know what you mean: don't listen to that voice inside your head. But isn't your voice dictated by your gut-feeling? And vice versa? Isn't it a vicious cycle? I think I'm confused on this point. Definitely agree here. I've met some cool people over the past few years. In particular, I...

    That's good advice. I'll keep it in mind. 🙂 "Bill, I need to finish up here if you don't mind." From the next bathroom stall: "Oh, sorry. I'll let you get to it Mike. We'll talk more later." Just kidding :p. I do really think it's good advice.

    I am so depressed

    I went into a conversation today with the intention of connecting and talking about things people would relate to, not with the intention of finding something "good" to say, and it went well. :) I was just reflecting on your advice and this thought crossed my mind: what kind of problems do you...

    Mostly because I feel that saying that would be very awkward. And it would open me up to questioning and vulnerability. "Why aren't you feeling talkative? What's wrong? Are you depressed?" etc.

    I am so depressed

    I think these negative events have happened often enough in my life that I can now see them a mile off. But... perhaps I am looking for them, and so maybe see things that aren't really there. Or I am blowing things out of proportion. It's extremely difficult to look at my own perspective...

    Back to the loneliness path

    You are not alone. I strongly relate to what you say.

    Both I think! Depends on the timing I guess. 🤷‍♂️ At times I just don't feel like talking, yet people insist on talking to me. Then I have to force myself to be "cheery," lest they think I hate them. It can be tiresome and annoying to deal with.

    I am so depressed

    I wish I could do this, and sometimes I can. Most of the time though, spontaneous conversation just leaves me feeling inadequate. Someone inevitably tries to one-up me, puts me down for being too silly, too boring, too serious, too ignorant... too... whatever the fuck ever. It depends on the...

    I am so depressed

    It's a drain trying to figure out something good to say when you have nothing to say. That pretty much embodies all of my interactions.

    Sometimes I get so antisocial. People want to talk to me but I'm just not in the mood. Then they get offended because I clearly don't want to talk and they likely think it's their fault when it has nothing to do with them. Feels bad.

    Off my chest rants- or how not to live your life

    So sorry you had to go through what I'm sure was a traumatic experience. :(

    Old signature full of sayings I find meaning in: ++++ Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner. ++++ Breathe, Listen, Pause-T.H.I.N.K.-Play ++++ grit - courage and resolve; strength of character ++++ On the path to greatness an excess of repetition and boredom is...

    The importance of people

    I didn't see this either. I agree with you. Essentially... the more one does something, the better they probably become at it; this applies to socializing as well. I feel there is some attuning to be done after not having been in public for a while. You'll hit your stride in short time. 🙂 (y)

    I'm sorry to hear about your dog. Always hurts to watch a pet in pain. :( On the bright side, sounds like otherwise you got a lot done today. Tomorrow maybe you can rest a bit more. :)(y)
