Re: [Chat] Cures for Loneliness

@Ben-RO yum! i love cupcakes

 

yeah, I think in movies the conversations flow well and everything goes smooothly, but in real life, sometimes there's those awkward moments when no one knows what to say next

Re: [Chat] Cures for Loneliness

For me I think a lot of it is around being made to feel different or like I don't belong - I was bullied a lot when I was youger so I guess thats why.

Re: [Chat] Cures for Loneliness

@cupcakes_032 movies are never a good standard for real life situations!! Smiley LOL

@Ben-RO I worry that after the conversation they will think that I'm unlikeable, and they might talk to others behind my back and laugh about me.

I have overcome this (a little bit) because firstly, I think it's exhausting trying to not be myself (like... it's REALLY difficult), and secondly, because I think if I am myself, it is easier to filter out the ones that won't like me! You get better quality friends if you are just yourself from the onset.

Re: [Chat] Cures for Loneliness

Yes @Stealth_ninja I eat when i am lonely. But I also just eat all the time because i love food (and cupcakes) so much. 

 

What are some of the things you think are likely to go wrong?
 
My number one fear is rejection. Specifically some kind of subtle rejection, like not being invited to a thing, like an event or something.

Re: [Chat] Cures for Loneliness

@Chloee yeah, i've heard of that quote before and it has really helped me talk to people. For me, it helps to ask questions and get to know the other person a bit more first. Then I sort of start opening up more when I feel more comfortable in the situation..

 

@Stealth_ninja just today i was thinking of treating myself with a cupcake when i'm feeling down and lonely, as a self care thing

  • Prolonged silence
  • Embarrass myself
  • Offend someone
  • Awkward moments
  • Seem rude or something alike that wasn't intended

@FootyFan26 I worry about offending people too! I have a really blunt and sarcastic sense of humour that I fear strangers may be offended by. Trying to tone it down now, and I mainly just use it around my closest friends who understand me
