*Twilight Zone - Text Only Club*
I find myself at a weird intersection in life.
I will admit that I'm someone who prefers texting when it comes to communication.
What I hadn't anticipated was it being a substitute for getting together in person, having phone and or video calls.
I have a friend that for years, the only way we communicated or interacted regarding our friendship was through text.
I try to initiate in-person plans without success. So I isolate and reaching out is harder to do.
I have trouble getting out and being social. I'm already so overwhelmed having to be in public that adding in "talking to and meeting new people" is pretty much impossible at that point.
When I bring up what I'm struggling with people are often dismissive and that makes in harder to open up in the future.
I'm trying to stay hopeful, but it's been hard.
