Recently I have been feeling very cut off from any conversation, any person and have no feeling towards anything.

Does anyone have any tips on how to start to feel a bit more connected with their surroundings?

Do you have access to any outdoor space where you could put a bird feeder? The simple act of watching the birds enjoy some food I put out for them gives me a lot of joy. Don't know, might help you feel a bit more connected 🐦

Have a small patch outside.

Doubt I would get much from that unfortunately. Sorry not to be a bit more upbeat and open to try.

Understand it is about small and simple acts, helping others be it creatures or fellow humans. Just too selfish and stuck in my own head to see the benefit if that makes any sense. Life is very unscheduled and muddled, struggling to even shop and make breakfast. Flat is a mess and can't see any light sometimes.

Will make a point of putting a washing on this morning and get through it.

Thanks for your response :)

I know exactly the same feeling and it seems to make other issues that you experience far worse. People always say reach out to others such as friends etc, I'm sure you have tried to follow that 'simple' advice but what happens when you don't receive a reponse etc, for me it only heightens my depression and desire to end it all.
A circle of friends who will listen, help take your mind off of things can be the best medicine but it's so hard when no one seems to bother.
I am a new member here and even just by signing up, I know there are people out there feeling the same way as me right now, so please feel free to drop me a DM, even just a chat about the weather, music, films anything, something to help take your mind off how you are feeling will not only help you but would help me too 😊

I find that maintaining a presence on social media like this helps me to feel a part of something greater. It’s pretty low commitment too.
If you mean more in person why not go out for trivia night at a local bar, join a book or gardening club or something. There are lots of ways to make a place for ourselves in the company of others. We just have to look around. xo, j
