I don't believe people understand the loneliness that comes with social anxiety. You never feel like you belong where ever you go.
You never believe people truly admire you but rather are being nice and only staying around because they feel obligated to.
As hard as you try, you try to make friends but get stuck with acquaintances from the fear of not being liked.
You wish you could form close relationships and although you have accomplished a few, you always feel as though people have other people they'd rather be with.
You feel constantly alone and it gets worse at night when you are up late to the early mornings with your mind. The mind that tells you over and over how unwanted you are.
How no one cares for you. How you mean nothing. Social anxiety is loneliness. It is real. And it hurts.
