    I'm so tired of being lonely. I wish it was easy to meet new people, but it's not, not when you have ******* anxiety. If I didn't have anxiety, I wouldn't be lonely or depressed.

    It's more dependence on ppl who should be around me. They make me lonely. If I am physically alone, I spend time in things that make me happy, excited and peaceful sleep.
