Do You Guys Shut Everything Out, Even Your Loved Ones

Do You Guys Shut Everything Out, Even Your Loved Ones

So I've been shutting my loved ones out and haven't been doing the things I love like playing my violin. I have been staying in my room, isolating myself. Sometimes when my siblings or my mom comes in my room I would shout "GO AWAY" or "GET OUT OF MY ROOM". I wanna stop doing this and hurting my loved ones. I wanna keep doing the things I love. How can I help myself?

It is awesome having the ability, but it is difficult when others don't understand it.

I have many times, and it affected my marriage. I agree sometimes we need to have our time and space. As an Empath though I experience this as well. It is tough when I pick up the emotions of others as well.

That's the hard part. It happens. You don't want to hurt people so you end up shutting them out one way or the other. People who know this will understand that you can't help it, and that it's a symptom of the depression, not because you're being mean. You just need some space.
