A chance

By Aru · Feb 9, 2019 ·
  1. I've been given some chances to attend some group meeting things in my town and i'm honestly really tempted to go because i am extremely desperate to socialise but at the same time i'm too afraid to go.
    These two constant feeling battling each other everyday are tearing me apart, I hate being lonely and i do want to meet people but i also really struggle with people generally, I would love to make friends online but that hasn't gone so well at all so i'm forced to try and make some in person somehow but it's 10x harder for me.. I'm just so irritated with my aspergers and social phobia problems these days and life just speeds past me everyday and i'm really really worried that i'll be stuck in a loop for the rest of my life and will never have anything positive. I feel like i'm screaming inside every day because my head is full of love and a fun personality but i can't bring it out at all.

    This group meeting is just too much too soon but has been the only thing i've been offered in terms of help, I would much rather do some kind of 1 to 1(with my family nearby) as groups are just hell, I need some form of freedom because i'm sat in my room everyday doing nothing and the things i do want are my own place to live with possibly a pet to raise (so i have something to look after) OR to meet some people and have friendship because honestly i can't remember what it's like to have a friend, if anyone has any advice for someone who is completely stuck with social phobia but DOES want to try break free.. please feel free to send anything my way that may help, I'm not saying i will go through with it but i do want to approach or look at anything i can at this point to try help
