Is it normal to have trouble making new friends through depression? I’m a very awkward/quiet person in general, which makes it difficult to make friends and get close to people. Does anyone else have the same experiences? It’s almost like I’m only close to my family and husband, but struggle with getting close to people outside of family.
I’m at a point in life (middle 20’s) where I’ve lost all childhood friends from going different routes in life and it’s difficult gaining new friends. I have a lot of loving people around me through work, church, and family but I find it difficult to create meaningful relationships.
Just wondering if it could be linked to depression or I’m just too quirky.
