Crumblingpuppet, I'm so sorry to hear that! There have been many times where I didn't want to leave my room. There are times I get so lonely, I want to just melt into the floorboards because I just don't want to exist.

What do you think hurts you the most?

I get not respecting yourself. Most times I haven't felt like I deserved good in my life. When I'm mentally alone, I hurt too. I'm crying, scratching at the air, kicking the wall. But you're never really alone when you have yourself to talk to.

I find it easier when you're alone to come up with an imaginary friend like you did when you were a kid. It can be a vessel for your fears and desires and a substitute for affection when it is absent from your life. I have a pillow I hug and kiss in order to sometimes imagine myself in a romantic relationship. I talk to it, but have the presence of mind to know it's just a pillow. I've discussed things that bother me with my pillow and having support from it (essentially your kinds words filtered through it) you can become your own best friend.

I didn't want to love myself. I wanted someone to love me. But that wasn't happening. So I turned an imaginary friend into a therapeutic vessel for loving myself. It's been an incredibly helpful tool at times.
