Single Status Update
Feeling drained and a quite down. I know it's hardly surprising but living on my own is a real struggle right now and sleep is really poor

you are giving yourself a hard time OB1, you can't be everything to everyone. I am sorry that people are not as willing to zoom like the first lockdown.
could you ask your neighbour if she wants a doorstep drink? maybe she is wondering if you want to do that this time round - you could always ask?
I have a habit of doing that and find it hard not to @Avo I never used to be aware of it but am trying to get better at not giving myself a tough time and try to practice self compassion.
I've messaged my neighbour a fair bit asking her so it's not a case of not asking.
I've sent a message to a friend so will see if he wants to go for a walk. He prefers his own company so will see.
I find most men I know are quite solitary people, they have a partner but otherwise don't seem bothered about a huge amount of interaction. This feeds into my own insecurities about being different I think. I also grew up with close male friendships and perhaps that was unusual, not sure.
I'm going to do some DIY for now, feeling a bit more up beat.
I grew up with close male friendships - didn't have any female friends in our group on a plutonic basis. I have never really had female friends if that makes sense - relationships yes but friends no it wasn't deliberate as such but just developed that way. I think I maybe could have benefitted from female friendship. I think these days its maybe a bit different and males and females mix in the same friendship groups.
