Hi, just wanted to say I kind of understand, haven't left home for weeks and I'm not planning to. In my case I could see some "friends" but to be honest when I do it annoys me, partly because I struggle pretending to have a good time, and interacting with them, but mostly because they seem not to be able to speak of anything meaningless. And their way to have fun seems so fake and superficial. I guess it might be me, be that's how I feel at the moment. I wanted to finish on a positive note.. not all good things need to be done with other people. I try to start from the things that make me feel good when I'm by myself, from watching a movie to cooking something nice, to having a walk somewhere in the outdoors. I found out that sometimes being with people make things worse, and I get some alone quality time. It doesn't mean that I don't hope to get back with others in a meaningful way, when I'm ready. Best of luck.
Hi. To be honest, no, statistically speaking life's more likely to get worse getting older, because of age, sickness risks, because it's harder to make friends, find a partner, job difficulties etc. Realizing this doesn't necessarily have to put you off further. Some people (like the buddhists, or the late philosopher Schopenhauer) say realizing life's limits helps reconsidering our expectations from life, which are too often exaggerated by society, to a point that is practically impossible for most people to get to. Almost nobody has all you need to have to have a perfect life, quite the opposite. Now, I'm quite a pessimist, but I do think that if you can compromise enough and you work hard enough you can get a decent life. After all the most beautiful things are free and it's just a matter of finding them; there's also a lot of people looking for someone to be happy with. Best of luck.
