Great message from @gallantfew @havokjournal
・・・ How many of you get invited out, and tell them how terribly sorry you are, but you're already booked up that weekend? When the reality is that you are actually just really busy holding it together in a space that you can control.
This is how the first problem starts, all by itself.
People stop asking you to go out, then you feel lonely and the isolation, that at first wasn't true, becomes your only truth.
Please don't give up on your friends. Ring them up, stop by their house, even when they don't want you to.
If you are isolating yourself, please don't give up on yourself. You aren't alone and you are NOT the first one that has felt this way. If you are a Veteran and you feel that you have no one healthy to lean on, link up with the @gallantfew family of organizations: (www.gallantfew.org/signup). They have programs that DO WORK and they have mentors standing ready to listen and get you back on azimuth. You don't have to do life alone.
