So Conflicted

I frequently feel alone. I find it hard to make friends, so when I'm out and see others with friends, signifigant others, etc, it makes me feel more alone and jealous.

 

But then I think of what my life would be like if I would have people in it. Honestly, I don't do well around others. I'm quiet, shy and find it hard to make small talk and keep a conversation going. Don't get me wrong, I've had friends, but between lives going in different directions with some and betrayal from others, I'm left to myself. I think part is I'm afraid to make friends for fear that what has happened to me in the past. Add on top of that growing up with an emotionally distant mother. It doesn't help in the relationship department. Which leads to the failure of the only relationship I've ever had.

 

There are days I want to be alone and others that I'm jealous of people because they can make friends so easily.

Try to accept that not everbody is 'good' at making friends. Not everbody had to like you. Friensdships can end, or fade away. In Dutch there's a song:<br />
One day you'll come to the conclusion, friendship is a illusion.
