Friendship cycles ⭕️

I constantly go through this cycle, I reach out to make friends, it all becomes very overwhelming and so I retreat and need alone time. Friendships are very difficult for me, I Find I struggle with face to face social situations.

I find it difficult to manage; listening to conversations, then thinking how to respond, dealing with sensory triggers, all of this is so overwhelming and takes so much energy it’s exhausting.

During social situation, outwardly I don’t think I show how difficult these situations are for me. So it can be difficult for people to understand my difficulties around maintaining friendships.

I have a small circle of friends that really understand me and don’t put any expectations or demands on me, they understand and respect my feelings.
