"I lost myself trying to please everyone else, now I'm losing everyone while trying to find myself" -Quotes 'nd Notes

I don't know how to really explain what's going on right now. I spend a lot of my work life surrounded by others and I loe it. I love meeting people with stories to tell. I love stretching and challenfing myself and my beliefs. I work with amazing people both as colleagues and as service users. At the end of the day, I need quiet. I need to regroup. I need my alone time and can happily spend my evenings and weekends just alone, quiet, crafting. I do such a range of things at work and learn so much - from how to coltivate cowslips, to coping with medication side effefcts, to journalism, to health coaching, to stained glass work... I could go on. It's awsome.

I'm also really lucky to have some wonderful people supporting me. Talking to me. Gently guiding me and giving me hufs.

However, I feel like I'm struggling a bit in the friend department right now. It's nobody's fault and nothing spepcific. It's largely my fault for being appalling at staying in rought with people, especially over the last few months. I also have a number of friends who are too unwell to keep up with communication right now. And a couple of amazing friends who don't live around here - but when we talk it's like we've never been apart. I think I've just been thinking about life and friendships and the fact that some people aren't rerally in my life any more - proplr who used to be a major part of my life. I don't know that it's necessarily a problem, maybe it's just growth? I think there have been a couple of times lately where I've really needed a friend. Really needed one - but I've opened my texts and realised there's nobody I really have that relationship with right now. I have used my support people and used online and things and don't get me wrong, I am so lucky to have those at my fingertips. I do genuinely feel really lucky with everything right now. I just also feel a weird sort of loneliness and it's been nuggling at me.
i get that too, you have to be your own best friend sometimes xxx
