    Hello Ross_Scope

    I'm currently pessimistic at present because my parents, a few of my friends, colleagues and my boss is worried about me. I restrained my relationship from my mum and dad. I also decided to stop myself from using social media via WhatsApp, Gmail, Google Chat and normal texts. I never use Facebook, Twitter, TikTok or Instagram because it is forbidden. 

    I decided to live my life as a lone wolf in isolation believing that my parents  wouldn't appreciate me.

    I'm sorry to hear that @chloeknight16071992. Do you mind me asking why you've stopped using those apps? Those people may be worried about you as you've been isolating yourself a bit. Have you tried reaching out to them a little bit? Chatting to them may make you feel better.

    Do you mind me asking why you've stopped using those apps? Because I thought if everyone is busy with their lives I just let them without interference. 
    Have you tried reaching out to them a little bit? I did. 

    I wanted to live my life as a lone wolf because I thought I would live my life as a loner without a companion or a friend in life.

    Some people get on very well in their own company and prefer it, but socialising can have lots of benefits too. 
    How are you doing today?
