Hi! I've had this account for a while but I've avoided posting anything cause every time I start typing I feel like its stupid and delete it. But I told myself I would today as I'm in need of some advice and don't really have anyone around me to speak to :) I just don't know what to do anymore. I've grown a hatred towards the people I'm closest to and I have no idea why, I feel drained and empty all the time and I haven't been able to properly cry in a long time. I almost feel emotionless. I try to socialise and see my friends as much as I can as a distraction but it never works and I always end up wanting to be alone - even when I do see my friends I feel like I have to force conversation and fake laughter. I feel like I have no escape. I'm so comfortable being in this state of mind that there's a part of me that doesn't even want to get better and that makes it so much harder for the other part of me to keep fighting. I don't even know what advice Im asking for, I just feel so hopeless and I'm so tired of constantly having to fight the same battle

You don’t need to apologize. I feel the same way at the moment so I get what you’re saying. Feel free to post your thoughts here. I too have moments where I get embarrassed about posting my feelings and delete it, but sometimes I just go for it. Being told I’m not alone and getting some advice makes me feel a little better. I hope you can find a way to cope with it better. I’m sure someone on here could be helpful to you.
:hug:

There were times before that I hated others too and I did not want also to be around people. I have heard that I need to love myself and to enjoy life. I have learned that I need to be happy and that a way to become happy is not just to love myself, but to love other people as well ( eg. to spend time with them).
You may ask yourself, "Why do you not want to be around people?"
Remember, the real "you" is "you" being loving and sociable because you were born to be loving, happy, peaceful and positive.

I've been in that situation. When I've been around friends sometimes when I laugh or smile it's fake and forced and I've been doing it for a long time now. I don't want to tell them how I actually feel. Sometimes I get annoyed and pissed with some of my friends sometimes and had that desire to be alone.

Relationships are two-way streets... Could it be you aren't feeling the love from these guys? Always making the effort, but not reaping the rewards is possibly exhausting, frustrating etc. Perhaps if this is the case, taking a little time out to re-charge your batteries might help... Just a thought :)

Hey! I’ve been feeling the same recently. I find it hard because sometimes my friends don’t understand why I feel the way I feel and my anxiety and things. Recently I’ve felt detached from my friends and it’s quite hard to know what to do. I think the best advice I was given was to make sure I surround myself with people that genuinely care, which is what I try to do now x
