Have you ever thought someone was avoiding you? Or maybe you’ve been the person that’s avoiding others?
Well maybe this might help you understand what might be going on.
I’d say I could say “Yes, that’s me”, to each of the 5 scenarios in this quote – Although some seem to have been full-time for a while.
The bottom line is, we never really know what others are going through, so don’t assume you know why someone is acting the way they are. Instead ask them if they’re ok, and when they tell you they’re fine, ask them again is they are ok. If they still tell you they’re fine, tell them you want to help them and ask them again if they’re ok.
Admitting openly to someone that you’re struggling, if often the hardest thing, even although you could do with the emotional support others may be able to offer you.
