I'm hoping I can offer some support to some people who might need it but I felt like this would also be a great place for me to start breaking out of my shell a little more. I have severe social anxiety to the point where I just ask people if they want to physically abuse me so I can show them I have some loyalty as a friend, all of my ex-friends and lovers have physically or emotionally scarred me and I used to think that it was my way of forming loyalty, connection and love with people I meet. I'm getting mental health help with intensive therapy so I'm now aware that this is obviously a terrible way to make friends irl. Trying to make friends who I don't have to abused by emotionally or physically is something I absolutely cannot comprehend, but I know that challenging this concrete belief in my brain will somehow help me form better connections.

Aside from that scary stuff, I love reading papers, books and archives about my nearly forgotten indigenous history. I love to cook and I'm hoping to complete a dish for dinner from as much countries as possible because I love food. I'm trying to get into some fun hobbies, so far I'm learning music theory and self-teaching sculpting so I hope that can make me feel a bit happier. I hope everyone has a good day if you read this, you all deserve good days.

Welcome to the forums!

I have to ask, (not implying anything here) Are you actually from Arcadia Bay, or have you've been playing Life is Strange? (great game!)

You've got some great interests! I studied music theory for a while in college. I'm also a performer (tuba).

I hope you can find some help here! The people here are kind and understanding. They will help you as best they can! It's a very safe space.

Oh yeah it's a Life is Strange reference haha

And that's cool you're a performer!! I'm just practicing and learning using a piano right now.

And thank you for your welcome and kind words!
