I feel like a monster. I don’t show enough empathy and emotions. I have always been like this even before sz. I really hate hugging and gifting people. Its why I don’t want a gf.
I guess nothing can be done about it, i just have to live with this ■■■■
It’s ok not to like to gift and hugh.
I don’t like to gift, but I like to hugh.
In eu, the southern countries hugh and kiss and the northen give their hand when you meet some1
I didn’t even hug my mom or gf
I think you’re a good guy Aziz. None of us are perfect.
Practice makes perfect. Once you do what you feel is the right thing at that moment, it becomes a dopamine reward…with the added benefit of pleasing someone else. You don’t have to hug, my brother never hugs anyone, he fist bumps but he does it with sincerity. Even to his mother, lol.
I was extremely shy in most ways as a kid. It took a lot of practice to get out of that. Even more practice to find real genuine interest and feeling for people. But it’s worth it.
Yeah no worries. It’s still part of the normal spectrum.
I read some stuff by Ryan Holiday, it had to do with stoicism but moreso deflating the ego, so you had something to work with when relating to other people. I highly recommend it and it was cheap at the time in ebook. I read it in the hospital while I was being diagnosed. Great for delusions of grandeur or too much meaning.
