The weird thing about having depression is that you often feel lonely yet want to be left alone. So what’s the cure to this peculiar problem? The obvious solution might be to force yourself to go seek company. But you and I both know that sometimes, that isn’t possible. Nor is it recommended. So what then? Does this mean you have to resort to spending all your free time at home?
Nope. You take yourself out and learn to be content in your own company. That’s it.
Admittedly, this isn’t easy and takes some getting used to. However, you will get better at doing things solo over time. The same goes for ignoring judgmental or plain curious stares from people. After a while, hanging out by yourself will seem like the most natural thing ever. Just the way it is supposed to to be.
