How to deal with the long-term neurological/psychological effects of consistent emotional dehumanization from literally everywhere and everyone? I feel like every time I didn’t act like what people wanted me to be, I got mercilessly shamed for it growing up and I’m extremely upset about it. Other kids telling me “shut up, no one cares” when I talked about my interests, calling me a creep when I tried to flirt with girls, guilt-tripping me into doing things I didn’t really want to do. I feel like I don’t want to be around people, and to be honest, I absolutely hate most people now. I like when they do something I like, but the thought of them ticks me off nowadays. I’m supposed to go out with a friend tomorrow, and I’m not even sure if I want to show up. It’s like everybody else just gets automatically fully accepted for who they are while I have to deal with this bull. It’s sickening.
