  • I feel lonely. I'm very lucky to call a few people my friends, and I have an amazing partner. But I miss having "my people", a group of people where I can be completely myself, unmasked, and loved and accepted for that. I feel like I haven't found them yet, and I don't know if I ever will.

    Work on that feeling of belonging. You don't have to be exactly like others to belong. It's just a feeling. Took me many years and I still fail at it, but not as bad.

    @marc_101 What do you mean by "work on it"? Like, how exactly?

    Hm, good question. Not sure, working on it myself. For me, it's a conscious effort to change my mindset. To focus on similarities rather than differences. To tell myself that I belong. Wish I had a better answer.
    I'm getting more and more overwhelmed right now from everyone talking and the TV on during family visit. I just secretly put in my earplugs, thank god they're fairly inconspicuous.
    I'm on holidays at an amazing, exciting place and all I want right now is to go home. I just arrived today, but I miss my home, my safe surroundings, my boyfriend and our cat so much... I can't just quit because it would disappoint my sister so much who's with me, and I won't do it and it's probably also exhaustion and massive overload right now, but I needed to be able to say this out loud.

    Sorry to read this. Maybe the rest will go by fast.

    Thank you for your answers. It's better by now - I slept 12 hours the first night and that surely did some good. I still miss home and my boyfriend, but I'm not that sad anymore. It's somewhat overwhelming but we're taking it easy and I used my earplugs at particularly crowded and noisy places, which helped.
    It sure it beautiful here. Just difficult to adjust.

    Yay! If you're like me, you won't want to come back in a couple of days :)
    Does anyone else feel the urge to copy down scenes from series/movies as a sort of manuscript, either in exactly the way it's played, or with an alternative ending, and can't stop thinking about the scene until it's done and "out of their system"? That's sort of my comfort thing to do. Got about 30 or so written out scenes from different series/movies on my computer, some in various editions and different languages.

    I did that when I was a kid, not really sure why, I just liked doing it. I remember I watched E.T and then I wrote down the entire movie afterwards. From start to finish, with descriptions of all the scenes. It took some time, it's a 2 hour movie.
