Feeling Alone

Feeling Alone

Is it okay for me to not want to hang out with people anymore? Since Covid, and friendships ending because of difference of opinions, I am reluctant to be around people anymore. I don't want to hear about politics, Covid, Abortion rights, etc. It seems this is all people want to talk about, especially when they are drinking. I don't drink anymore, may have a one or two, but this is my limit. I don't want to get drunk and stupid. It seems my old set of friends want to do this. This isโ€ฆ read more

It's definitely your right to pick friends that will lift you up and to feel at peace with those friends or by yourself,. Plus if those people are not helping you feel better, you have to look at that. Not just dump them. Maybe they are long time friends, yet you can establish boundaries or try to steer the conversation to other topics..

Also try to keep something to fall back on, a new activity or new group idea. Don't just drop them and dwell at home.

I never heard of people drinking and talking about current events. When I was drinking the world and event, problems is far far away. .People discuss things for ??? to be educated or be smart about it, OR just to brag and be busybodies.

Hope it helps!! For sure is is ok, just make sure you are doing it for right reasons and it will be for the better.for YOU.๐Ÿ’œ

I find it very difficult to find and maintain relationships that are more intimate or spiritual. I do have a few close friends with whom I can have meaningful conversations, but it requires that I be somewhat consistent with contacting them and depression makes that very difficult to do. I think it must take a special person to want to be around someone who is feeling bad or sad all the time, so it is a priority to seek my friends out whenever I can. Human contact is imperative in managing depression, I find. I have to somehow feel connected to feel like my life has any value.
