How do you prevent thoughts of loneliness and hopelessness from swallowing you up?
I'm trying to distract myself with more cheerful things but it isn't working.
It just makes me more frustrated and upset. I'm not playing as much as I used to. Probably gonna quit soon.
Looking away won't make them disappear. Neither will letting them defeat you.
Maybe try and confront these thoughts and act accordingly with them. What it is they want and how you could possibly achieve it.
Be indefatigable, & you could be hitting these two birds with one stone. If you're actively working towards something greater, there's optimism for what that could result in. That optimism could carry you until you've a better chance at acquiring companionship. For example, one way to do this is to lift the fucked feels away. This may not be sound to you, people are different.
They can be, yet they can also be the opposite. It depends which drugs, what you're taking them for, & how frequently you use them.
Distract yourself with something meaningful. Read a book, listen to your favorite (not sad) music, or really anything that will distract you that will impact you positively. I'd avoid escapism as it will make your problem worse in the long term.
Also getting a pet will help a lot if you're willing to take on the responsibility.
I don't think I'm capable of having friends, or love. I'm not worth it. I'm not interesting, I don't offer anything.
Once I get past my loneliness, it will be easier to move forward. But it's such a difficult hurdle. To just completely give up on any kind of companionship or romance or emotional connection and accept life alone. That's hard.
I just nut up and do brave shit like beating up niggers
>mfw this was me at school, stabbed his face up real good
Welcome to depression
Dont try to make friends
Also you might need to learn to be okay with wanting to be depressed.
Is okay to go through an endelord phase between your froggie/robot stage and normie stage.
I move goalposts in real life. Also rationalizing life as a mission to increase net entropy helps to be a useless pile of meat.
You just embrace it and choose what you want to do. If there's nothing go with the flow. Or terminate your program if you really can't do it.
Post your steam if you want. We can play video games or talk about anime if you want something to distract yourself.
