Do you assume that people won’t like you?
Then, thinking that you are not good enough, do you isolate yourself, and end up feeling lonely?
Maybe you’ve tried to combat this pattern by forcing yourself into social situations? And, then, when you are in these social situations, do you feel awkward or phony?
Or perhaps, because you feel so badly about yourself, you are surrounded by people who are “takers”?
These situations can leave you feeling very alone. Unseen, unappreciated, and unvalued.
This is a tough place to be.
