It has been so frustrating not being alone long enough to SH but. tonight I know I exist because I finally felt th old familiar burn with pain so deserving.
I have lost faith in my fellow man. I am losing the ability simply feel let alone to sympathize/empathize with others-I just feel numb to the world around me. There is no desire to interact with the outside world and thus SH induces the well needed/deserved punishment upon me that I can’t do in public.
i Don’t deserve happiness, love, friendship, kindness, and all those other creature comforts and feelings because I am a very dark person inside and these convictions have been formed over many decades. Welcome to my f**k*d up life.

Hi Quietman, looking for a quiet place because I am a very dark person and alone inside I am way too familiar to. I am sorry.

You do deserve happiness, love, friendship and kindness. You deserve to feel well.

I know you probably already know about DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). Sometimes I am reluctant. I did buy a DBT book.

You feel like you don't deserve these good things, but that doesn't make it true. 💗
