How often do you sit at home and wish someone would ring you and suggest well, anything rather than these four walls? How many of you have had a night out planned, or arrange coffee with friends and suddenly ‘these four walls’ seem the only safe haven because its the only place you dont have to pretend you are ok, so you cancel. Or when you are invited out but you tell them how terribly sorry you are but you’re already booked up that weekend, when youre actually just really busy holding it together in your safe box.
So, the first problem starts all by itself. People stop asking you and the isolation that at first wasnt true becomes your only truth.
Please dont give up on your friends. Ring them, go round, even when they dont want you to; because they really do, they just dont know how to say it.
