So recently I've just not felt close to people. I didn't even notice it until someone called me the second closest person in their life and it just hit that I have felt emotionally muted for a while and I don't know how to fix that? Like I know I care about people but it's all muted and feels so distant I just don't know how to fix it.

I've found sitting in meditation, visualising people and sending them love and kindness and wishing for them to be happy and free from suffering has helped to open my heart and feel deep emotions not just for others, but also for myself.
