I currently reside in Peckham, London. I have been living here all my life. I get to interact with people a lot and I can say that I know a number of people but the truth is that I cannot really call any of them my friends. Most of my colleagues at work believe that I’m a jovial and lovable person, but beneath all those jokes, the truth is that I’m very lonely.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to start a conversation with anyone, but whenever I have the chance to talk with people, I end up making a lot of jokes and the other person either thinks I’m weird or assumes that all is fine with me. But all isn’t, really. It gets frustrating as I start to feel that no one really gets me. They all just see me as a jester and forget that I need some comforting too.
My ex-girlfriend used to always complain that I hide behind sarcasm and banter to avoid serious conversations, and it’s until now that I realized how right she was. I feel like I really need help, I don’t just know what to do anymore. I really need some advice, maybe I’m just seeing a problem where there is none or is there something really wrong with me? Thank you in advance Henry.
