Isolation is probably one of the worst things for mental health. Being alone isn’t bad however it can be when you have enough time alone to think and over think to a point where it latches onto you and you start to want attention and love and friends.
I’m writing this at night in my bed with music on trying to stop the intrusive thoughts but it’s so hard to avoid feeling like a complete waste and that I don’t think I’ll ever be who I want in life.
Feeling lonely hurts me so so much and I can’t do much about it because my social skills are horrible! Staying around my parents and music helps me a lot however I can’t shake the feeling of loneliness even in a room of 100 people. Probably because I don’t connect to them at all and I’m quite a weird and bizarre boy. My interests are music and model trains and nursing.
My whole life revolves around mental health and trying to help improve it, rather than enjoying life I’m just overwhelmed with the amount of activities I signed up for and now I feel overwhelmed. That’s life I guess.
