You have definitely taken the first step in addressing your difficulties in relationships and feeling alone-
I just want you to know that here at proven therapy, we are there to help you successfully move through
the process of identifying what is exactly going on in you personally. I have seen friends who have
encountered the same regarding the issue of identifying with their pets whom they treat like family.
They truly want someone whom they can rely on, however, struggle personally with attaching to
relationships. I had noticed how you had only mentioned "financial" security. This had concerned
me, as you did not mention the other areas of your life in which you needs security- as they are
emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically, mentally, attitudinally and so on.
From clinical experience, there may be more going in you that is resulting in you feeling that your
life is a total waste. If you ever need someone to unfold your life issues, I am there for you to
help you tap into your own inner assets that determine how you branch out and make greater
things happen for you. There are resources out there to assist you with making stronger and
healthier decisions about the direction of your life. Sometimes we chose to do "nothing" or
stay where we are at in life- because this is where it is most comfortable. And in order for
us to get better, we have to move out of our comfort zone to grow. Thanks for sharing!
