I don’t feel lonely. I enjoy being able to think my own thoughts without interruption. I don’t get bored usually; my own mind keeps me busy. But when I’m alone, Im more likely to be depressed.
I don’t feel self-loathing. i don’t think in those terms. I like myself, my values, my heart. But still, I have trouble believing other people can feel the same way about me. I have trouble believing I am worthy of love, or help.
I dont “get” self-pity. I’m not sure I even get at an emotional level what pity is. I’m prone toward empathy, though. And I value and admire compassion. I’m not sure if I “feel sorry for myself”. But I do look at my life and wish it had gone differently in several places.
