Hi, Hey, Hello!
I feel like this is about hugging. Or just physical contact from people you care about because it is supposed to make you feel good.
Except I don’t really like it.
I’m not a hugger.
I honestly on some level don’t know if I even know how to do it. I am being slightly hyperbolic, but seriously. It’s just not my thing.
Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate the sentiment of a hug, but I just feel kind of awkward in them.
The same applies to casual touches between that you know and some level care about. It takes me a while to get used them. And even when I am, a lot of the time it still catches me off guard. I don’t know I feel like when I’m looking for comfort from somebody else the thing that would mean the most to me is just them being a sounding board. Which sounds kind of bad but a lot of the time when I’m too in my own head, I just need to rant. And then I will be find. I don’t even really need a response. I just need to not be overthinking things in my head and have it be in the ether and not my brain and then I can move on.
That to me is the equivalent of getting a quick hug from someone.
Failing that, falling into my bed and wrapping up in my massive duvet and burrowing away from the world is also a great one to temporarily deal with the demons.
