In fact I’d go so far as to say I don’t enjoy socialising at all lately. I just hate all the anxiety and paranoia that goes with it, I can never just relax like others around me.

I also just hate listening to myself speak, I sound like someone that has no confidence that doesn’t know **** about **** and I feel like I cringe mentally afterwards at the things I say.
I would just rather be alone, it’s not healthy but why put myself through this I don’t gain any enjoyment out it. The more I do it the more I despise it so just exposing myself to it does nothing for me.

Part of the problem with these work do’s is as much as I like the company and the people I work with, deep down I don’t feel I belong here. I need a job that fits my talent as an artist, not these dry dull office jobs.

I love just being alone, I can just be myself and truly relax something I can’t seem to do in the company of others.

Same - I can't do the whole country club high school culture office job! It's too annoying. I'd rather have work mostly alone or very defined teamwork but not an open cubicle or floorplan loud environment with no privacy. Definitely now is the time to find a job that is at least somewhat is enjoyable unless you need to pay the bills just stick it out for the moment.

I love working from home and not feeling like I need to talk to anyone, I can just focus on my work.

Very relatable, especially the part about hearing yourself speak. I sound beyond silly and uninteresting. I also never know what to reply which makes me look incredibly stupid.

I don't have a job though, never had and while I feel relaxed and never anxious on my own it is definitely not a better life. I only beat myself up more and more it's a never-ending cycle...I get nothing done.

Count yourself lucky you have a job, at least on that part you are sane and normal.

Aah dont be so hard on yourself. We all need to make money to survive.

But your post is definitely relatable
