I find it difficult to interact with people. One of the reasons is the villainisation narratives that people casually construct. I tend to automatically identify with the villainised party in any story so this tends to make all interactions feel morally persecutory. This is particularly bad on social media with old aquaintances from my home country. I have not spoken to many of them for many years but i used to see their stuff. Recently i unfollowed a bunch of people. I am once again thinking of shutting my facebook, although i use it for messaging my brother and sister so it is problematic. As to face to face, i have not had friends or romantic partner in many years, other than people i am effectively paying to talk to me i.e. therapist and language teacher. I maybe have a conversation with someone at work once a fortnight or so. I have been to a few work social gatherings but i always feel somewhat out of the conversation and again i feel like i identify more with the outgroup corresponding to whatever is being talked about, rather than the ingroup of the people talking.
