It’s also to blame for sometimes being sure the friends I have only pretend to be my friends. I am so hard on myself and legitimately think I cannot do anything right, my irritability would add to that thinking, so I would get irritated and on-edge. Unfortunately, sometimes it goes deeper than irritability and lack of confidence, this is when my most intense and anxious thoughts are constant. It is when I imagine my life without the people I love or I ask the horrific question: would I be missed if I was gone?
