more dumb thoughts

Related to this?

Man, some days, along with not wanting to talk to internet people? I don't want to talk to anyone at all. I've been withdrawing a lot lately. I'm not sure why. I'm kind of worried this is me descending into hikkikomori-dom, or something...

But it really is nice to be alone sometimes--to do whatever I want without having to worry about what other people think or want.

Is this the backlash from too many years of trying to help people? Have I gotten exhausted of...people in general? Does this make me selfish?

Everyone needs at least a little time alone.

The fact you are observing your behaviour and worrying about it probably indicates you aren't too far gone yet!

Referring to your last post--honestly, it'd be unrealistic and affronting for people to tell you to go out and spend time and money to refill your Social bar like a Sim or something, when you a) have precious little of each to spare as an university student and b) interact with perfectly valid friends discussing shared interests online.

Some might argue that I am an unapologetic hikkokomori (I'm not but circumstantial evidence is pretty damning tbh) so feel free to take this comment with a grain of salt! I hope things give you a chance to relax soon, at any rate.

Something did occur to me--are there any student clubs or similar organisations that aren't directly related to your major (and don't exist solely for drinking--there are soooooo many clubs like this in my city's universities OTL) that could provide a chance to socialise, that won't feel like it's just another part of your studies? Something like a debate club or a movie club or something?
