I recently just realized something about myself. I know everyone is busy with adulting and stuff, maybe I am still wrapping my head around it. But I noticed that I swing to the extreme opposite when plans get cancelled. It hits me pretty hard. Maybe I just want to feel like someone is willing to invest the same energy I am putting in. I also realized that i need to work my way out of my shell, and put myself out there more. I got so comfortable with the notion that if you dont invest time and energy in me, I will also do the same. Should i keep living by this, or am i just being naive? Other than work and colleagues, I realized i could end up not getting calls or hearing a friend's voice for up to a week. I always have to make the initiative, and it honestly feels one-sided. I used to reach out to my friends all the time, I found myself initiating most conversations, but when i stopped, my WhatsApp has never been so dry before. Maybe i just need to find new friends and explore new places. But being the introvert that I am, this is going to be tough.

Could it be that we're always around the wrong people?

You could also look at it this way, the people you're around might be going through things, situations, that hold them back when it comes to reaching out to you...also it could be that since social media has made it so possible for people to know what is happening in other people's lives without having to ask, we no longer see the need to reach out in the traditional way, lastly yes, it might be that you're always around the wrong people

Hi I'm still in campus but it's the same with me. I'm quite the introvert na sometimes it gets pretty lonely . Sometimes I long for someone to reach out. Apart from my mom no one calls this phone of mine , got used to it.

I've struggled with my personality for long , since I've never fit in since I was small. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed , anxiety has eaten me up my whole life .

Today while we Left class I asked myself what I was doing there? Feel so empty attending those classes ,

Sorry to burden you with my problems but I just wanted to say that you're not alone.
