Why do people don't talk to each other?

If some one talks, it’s only with someone coming from a relation. All the freaking suspicious.

I thought I was thinking I was the only crazy one around me.

I just asked a person can I take a photo with you and he is like investigating more than a cop.

I have no clue either I am crazy or rest of the people are crazy.

No one talks to each other, other than known people.

Or is it just me.

How many strangers did you meet today ?

I see only @mjseu posting talking to strangers.

Because 99% of other people are annoying and need to shut up.

Being honest.


My parents think I am a liability and don’t know how to say NO to anything or don’t have a trick or nack to handle people.

Its just that I was not like this before sz. But after sz I started to think in sensitive way and overthinking way.

What if i speak to someone and create a liability.

I think it’s the same way. Try to give a stranger a hand shake and they are like what ? Or people like me, alone will give handshake :handshake:

Weirdo out there who don’t give handshake oh yeah it could be the germs :worm::bug:

But seriously where is this world heading. People just stare and if I smile they are like huuu ?

It like I will stay in my cocoon or shell or the Circle.

See me I am open to the ends of the worlds wherever internet reaches :joy:

I wasn’t good at speaking to other people until I made an effort to learn how to do so effectively. I have had the problem from childhood, well before I had SZ. Now I can speak to others, I would just prefer not to.

Why ? You know the more people one talks to the more insite will one gain.

My previous company owner said I don’t watch news but I just talk to people.

You can also gain insight from books, which is much less irritating.

Book is one way street. But one way it’s good to read books. What if listener becomes the teller in a conversation.

I really want to talk to old people. I think I will visit a old age home soon. I will make it a priority.

Edit : you may say that I should talk to my parents first :sweat_smile: I have always heard only my parents.

The other day two people visited my home and they said now a days kids kick the parents out of the rented homes. But my parents are taking care of me. I had no words.
