I'm feeling more alone than I'd like to admit because I've been connecting with people. After getting some really good advice on moving on, I started taking steps. Of course, looking back has become a bad habit, so I'm working on that. But identifying the behavior is the first step to stopping it. It's been so long at this point that I linger almost out of instinct.

It still feels like a standstill trying to make friends, or at least make conversation and feeling somehow separate, compartmentalized, partitioned from people.

I've been making more typos, too. I don't know if it's because I'm tired earlier in the day or something else, but I -- Nevermind. I'll just try to pay more attention.

One must be more mindful.

I don't think anybody actually reads these, but it's nice to process "aloud." I think the invisibility is my favorite part. I can be as candid or as vague as I want to be.
