Very difficult to stay grounded

In complete isolation. I handle isolation better than most, but at times I feel like the guy at the end of 2001 space Odyssey. All alone going about daily routine.

Other people do something like satisfy one’s feelings and opinions or provide needed comforts or be an object to abuse or use unfortunately. I talked to brother and mother today, but still feel unsatisfied.

I know that feeling. If it wasnt for my studies, id drown in it. The feeling is awful.

Is there anything you like reading about?

Do you have any hobbies ?

Yeah video games, exercise, listening music, reading, drawing. But it gets dull. I think over the years I used people as emotional support for angsts and I just need someone to listen to whining.

I’m in the same boat. I phone people and it doesn’t seem enough anymore. Some of them seem to resent my calls and start criticizing me, telling me I hate everything, just because I complained I hated January. Too much of my time is spent alone. I read an article that says each person needs one to three hours of socializing a day, but I have no idea where to get that. :thinking:

I find with myself that after socializing for an hour or 2 that I’m ready to have some isolated time for myself. I’m not very social.
