How do I gather the energy to go out?

I've got a meetup group coming on tonight and we are suppose to go out downtown for a concert. However, I just feel too lazy and avoidant of it. Even though I joined because I was feeling extremely lonely, depressed and etc and wanted to try it out.

How do I summon the energy to get out? It's just hard so much as getting in the shower and having to get ready. I barely go out much since I work from home and such and can easily afford not to go out much.

The greater part of me just wants to curl up in bed and not bother. I don't know. I just feel like I'd be wasting money as I have a feeling this won't go right and I won't find someone to connect with.

You're obviously extremely depressed. It's okay, a lot of people are these days.

You should go out and be as gung ho as possible about it. Go out. Worst case scenario is that you have a boring time. Or you could meet a new friend or two. Or you could meet your next love.

Life is what you make of it. If you sit around at home, you can expect nothing to happen. If you go, the world of possibility opens up to you.

Always opt for the unexpected.

Not OP, but I really needed to hear that, thanks anon.

I feel the same way but for different reasons. I genuinely cannot connect with people on an emotional level and all friendships of mine are surface-level.

Same here.

There is a weird paradox that I've noticed though:

>Have depression.
>Lethargic.
>To stop being depressed you need to break out of lethargy.
>Too depressed to break out of lethargy.
>WAKE ME UP

It's a cruel trick, I know. However going out to the event is worth it if you can muster the energy.

Perhaps you're not ready to go and you need to train yourself by going to smaller events. I have had massive issues with going to Games Workshop and other hobby places because I lacked the energy. I'm training myself now, I'm seeing gradual yet noticeable results.

OP here. I will say that I managed to take a shower after not having showered in about a month or two. So, your post did have impact. I'm getting my best clothes together and I'm going to try and get what I want tonight.

I don't know what is going to happen ,or if it's even worth it, but I won't know until I try at least. And after looking myself in the mirror, I find I'm not that bad looking. Used to be 350 pounds, but I've slimmed down to 190 and I look good in my clothes.

It's the first time in awhile I've worn slim fitting jeans and I hope this confidence will be enough for tonight.

Got myself a hot cup of coffee and I'm hoping this social thing becomes just as adaptable as my exercise and losing weight. As, I'm assuming it will eventually become natural like running and what not.

Yes. Last night went amazing. It was the best I felt in years, and from what I recall when I was high out of my mind, I just told I was the happiest I ever been and ran into a group of good people.

>or if it's even worth it
Trying, struggling, failing and learning or succeeding and enjoying... these are all worth it no matter the outcome.

Sometimes the worth is in the journey. Because no matter where that journey takes you, you always know you had the balls to take the first steps and keep walking.

>>16534517
So are you going to start going out more?

>>16534582
I like that, thanks.

Yeah, I found out it was worth it last night. It felt nice to connect with others, open up a bit and get some fresh air. I didn't have much hope going in, but I got some new friends, a good experience and feel a bit less lonely.

>>16534578

You will to, anon-kun. I suggest doing a meetup and googling that site. Maybe you can find people there.
