I’ve been going to this vape shop just to hang out because everyone there is so cool and so nice and I’ve made friends with them and honestly I’m so proud of myself for going because I’ve been stuck in this depressive state where I literally don’t want to leave my room, but I’m actually going out. And I’m hanging out with these people. And I don’t think they realize that just hanging out there has helped me so much. Im just this random girl that comes in a lot to hang out, but I truly like hanging out there because I like the people and I’m happy I’m leaving my house and forcing myself to be around people. Yeah, sometimes I get anxious because groups of people come in and all know the workers and are having convos when sometimes I’m just sitting there awkwardly, and yes sometimes I feel like they wish I wasn’t there or don’t like me there. But I’m proud of myself for actually going, and actually finding joy when I didn’t think I’d ever find it. Sometimes I do feel like they would rather not have me hanging out there, like I’m some freak or some weird random girl who comes all the time but then other times I feel like they enjoy my presence. It’s new to me, being around people is new to me. Because I’ve been spending every day at home for the past few months. But I’m actually getting out and being around people. Even if it’s just at a vape shop for a couple hours every other day. I’m still getting out, I’m still surrounding myself with people rather than with just my thoughts. It’s simple, and I still have bad nights, but during the day I’m happy. When I am there, I’m happy. Even if we are just watching tv. Even if I’m the only person at the shop besides the employees. Even if I’m sitting there for 30 minutes while others talk. I’m there, and I’m around people, and I’m happy.
