I have anxiety about intimacy with anyone.

I just want to hide and be alone.

I can't cope with it,.

What’s your definition of intimacy? Because everyone at least needs a friend ❤

i lost my dad and i was very close to him. i am still dealing with the loss.
I’m so sorry to hear that, dealing with loss is horrible & lonely. Intimacy must be one of the last things on your mind. Sending a virtual hug ❤

Yes be kind to yourself. Something that helped me with my grief was to do something that made me feel closer to the person I lost each day. Made the anger go away slightly xx

Please treat yourself kindly. It was 2003 I lost my dad. I think of him each day, Today on Facebook there was a group picture for remembering the people of my home town. The picture was of my dad as a 30 year old. He was with 2 other young men. Standing in front of a decorated lorry for the town annual parade. Love all the old photos. I also have started growing roses in my garden, he did too. One is for him and its called Reminiscence. Take care x

It’s so important to care for ourselves when we are grieving and give ourselves all if the time and space we need. At the same time some losses we will grieve forever just like they just happened yesterday. So while I do think it is so important to practice good self care I also think it’s important not to block new opportunities from coming into your life because you are grieving. People can help us in our grieving sometimes by giving us an opportunity to step out of ourselves and into other activities, etc...they can help us by keeping us uplifted and through care. So I think if you have an opportunity to spend some time getting to know someone you should do it! It might be a nice change of pace and if nothing else could just be fun. xo, j
