Chaeryoung Posted March 1 Share Posted March 1 Hello everyone. I had my share of posts here, but I guess this topic is the most important. Brief description of myself: So I am a 26 year old female, graduated, trying to build a life for myself, attractive (most people would say above average), but unfortunately deeply affected by traumatic experiences with my parents that haunted me up throughout my early adult years. With time and some failed relationships, I took the time to self reflect and learn more about myself and this self-awareness helps. I cannot afford therapy, but I am trying my best to do what I can with the resources I have at my disposal. My current cause of anxiety is, however, age-related. Although I know that I am still young, I feel so directionless and also, so alone. I lost the most precious relationships, I don't have true friends and I became used to spending time with myself. Yet there is a hurt that doesn't go away. I need quality human interaction and I find it one of the most difficult tasks, to find people that I like and that would like me in return. Another major fear is that I will end up alone. Spending my days without a human being next to me to share the good and the bad stuff with. Someone that would support me and whom I would support in return. I fear (as I see is the case with other women as well), that I am running out of time, although, I must say, I don't want children, there isn't this kind of urgency from this PoV), I just want to meet a compatible person. But I am afraid (please don't judge), that my looks are fading, and that it is going to be way harder to find someone. Dating apps ended up being a huge disappointment. What I see there is plain superficiality, and this growing trend of treating people as commodities just depresses me. Any words of wisdom for myself? Would be much appreciated. Thank you.
