Super sad and feeling alone... so I made some chocolate chip cookies

  1. So yesterday I got really sad because I thought about what it was like to be that odd one out.

    You know where you are in a group of people supposedly friends , but the only reason you got invited up to the bbq or party was because you happened to be around the people at the time .

    That constant feel of wanting to fit in, having to text people to hang out so that you feel like you belong, but don’t....so disappearing for a couple week in to the safety of your bedroom seems like the best idea.

    I decided to make cookies to “help” with my anxiety:

    Being invited to an event where most of the guests know each other, you can easily feel like a 5th wheel. If you aren't having fun, it's OK to leave. I don't agree with allowing your anxiety to govern your thoughts and actions, though. But, your idea to capture value out of your day was a good one. I tend to believe that the simple solutions are always the best. Freshly made chocolate chip cookies would brighten anyone's day. Think of them as the "culinary anti-depressant". It works for kids, why not us? Good save to an unpleasant day.
