Guest just_one_respite Posted May 14 Share Posted May 14 I struggle to make meaningful connections with people, namely, friendships. I know a couple of beautiful people I'm honoured to be able to call my friends. Because of my current situation I can only text them. Sometimes I feel resentful because they only initiate conversation when they're bored or depressed. They only share the major accomplishments with me and when I try to ask for details, they get distant. I feel horrible for thinking this, but I think I may just be a safe person to consult, and they want to celebrate the fun times with other people in their lives. Maybe it's a way for them to separate the good and bad parts of life? I know this is a me problem. Maybe I'm taking this extra hard because as an aroace, I only have experience connecting with people platonically, and I don't have a support system outside of my friends. Maybe it doesn't have anything to do with gender & sexuality identity, and just that I have no idea how friendships work because I have lived a pretty isolated life, and never stayed in one place for too long. I don't know. I'm working on focusing more on my own activities to build up support for myself within myself. Meanwhile, I wanted to know if others have had a similar experience...?
