Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

As others have said, it can be really difficult to open up to someone. It sounds like although you’re anxious, you can see the benefit and still willing to try someone new. That is very brave of you @mrmusic!

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

thats quite normal and perfectly ok @mrmusic it can be hard to open up to others esp when they are strangers to us. the first step is often the hardest so well done on trying to persue getting a new psychologist

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

Good news and bad news...

I’ve heard back from one friend, and we’ve agreed to catch up Saturday week in the city. Smiley Happy But everyone else has ignored me so far. Smiley Sad

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

Hey @mrmusic, well I think it's great that you've got something lined up with one of your friends. I think it takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there and it's something you should be really happy about Smiley Happy How are you feeling at the moment?

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

@basketofmonkeys I’m feeling kind of a mixture of really happy but also incredibly anxious, as I need to make sure I respect appropriate social boundaries (that others just seem to get - I don’t). I have had so much trouble with that in the past and I’m not confident that I can this time. I guess I’ll find out...

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....

@mrmusic, I think that's a perfectly normal thing to feel. Sometimes it's really easy to feel like other people have the hang of something that you just don't, but I think it's really awesome that you've still chosen to put yourself out there and give it a shot. It take a lot of courage, particularly if you feel like socialising isn't your strong suit. Make sure to let me know how it goes!

Re: I'm too needy / clingy ....
