How many of you have had a night out planned, or arranged coffee with friends and suddenly the 4 walls you inhabit seem the only safe haven because it's the only place you don't have to pretend you are ok, so you cancel. Or when you are invited out you tell them how terribly sorry you are but you're already booked up that weekend, when you are actually just really busy holding it together in your safe box. And so the first problem starts, all by itself. People stop asking you and the isolation that at first wasn't true becomes your only truth.
But remember you are loved and valued. We know your hurting and its a very hard place to be. If you want to reach out we will be here to hold you and care for you.
Please don't give up on your friends. Ring them, go round, even when they don't want you to. Because they really do they just don't know how to say it.
Of all the fantasies human beings entertain, the idea that we can go it alone is the most absurd and perhaps the most dangerous .
