I cut contact with a lot of my IRL friends. I feel like they see talking to me as some kind of chore & I don't want them to be uncomfortable.

It's been raining a lot. Maybe it's affecting my mood. I'm not usually this emotional.

@MutoShack I don't know how to tell, if people are indeed uncomfortable with that, or it's just me having issues and misreading them (after all, there are plenty of reasons they may be uncomfortable, besides my presence). I suppose it's even objectively impossible to tell. But:

- this feeling seems to be quite common, yet often unfounded, and just preventing communication and worsening the situation

- if the communication has a practical reasons, the emotional factors aren't a legible obstacle
