trauma / social relationships Show more
I really don't know how long it will take to get used to the idea that people aren't excluding me from things? It's just such shitty coincidence, adult life has so much less free time for socializing but the pattern is indistinguishable to my brain from 9+ years of intentional malicious exclusion by peers.
I guess reflecting on the societal pressures at play now does help though. Adulting is a lot of work.
