Bugger it I Think then try again.

Posted 27th June 2011 at 00:43 by acidcasual

I'm doing all right these days in the main. I'm near my third listen of Dr Richards cd set. Here's the link if your interested. http://www.socialanxietyinstitute.org/
But I'm finding it hard to find people I can really relate to. I'm putting myself out there and managing to have superficial chats with a variety of people but I'm just not connecting with anyone on a deeper level. I wonder if this is just down to me or am I just not meeting the right people. Am I being too picky or not giving enough of myself to allow the relationship to grow. I must admit I am somewhat guarded. I've been sectioned five times through the bipolar and still hear voices even though it and they are well under control now, it's not something you share straightaway if at all. So I am a little guarded but I know I come across as an easy going friendly type of guy. I'm not desperate for friends, I can bimble along quite happily by myself most of the time. It would just be nice to have a deeper connection with someone. Someone to share my goals and aspirations with, someone to joke with, someone to bounce ideas off, just someone to connect with. I'm optimistic these days and see a bright future for myself, it would just be nice to have someone to share it with.

    I can understand what thats like. Its my biggest problem (finding genuine people). For some reason, i'm always left out, even though i have been trying recently.

    Just got to keep up the effort i guess. Maybe things will work out. Other people seem to think that approach will work 100%, but i'm skeptical.

    The thing with meeting new people seems to be a common problem with most people. I personally have tried to figure out what the big problem is with meeting new people. Not sure. I do know that I've pretty much given up on the idea. I've run into old acquaintances and old friends and nothing has come of it as far as renewing friendships. Very strange. Anyways, my point is that I don't believe its a problem that you are only having. I have a drinking buddy that I get together with once a week to go out and have a beer and he told me the same thing you just mentioned. He told me that he doesn't understand why it's so hard and so far impossible to make new friends. Anyway, when he told me that I realized it wasn't just me that was having trouble making new friends. You would think that people at a bar that are there alone would be willing or looking to make new friends but that does not seem to be the case. Anyway, don't feel like the lone ranger, there are plenty of people experiencing the same problems you are.
