        The sensation of lacking a vital necessity, being unable to fulfill it on your own, and constantly seeking assistance from others, feels shameful and lacking in dignity.

        Like we should be better than this, nobody owes us anything but at the same time we shouldn’t need anybody either, not in this way at least.

        I find it rather dehumanizing.

          It’s a blow to my ego as well. Losing my wife has hurt my pride. We had a higher status as a couple. Now, I feel vulnerable. I can’t be complacent anymore, and my confidence is slipping away.

            It pisses me off that I have to basically be anyone but myself to keep friends around. You hear people say “be yourself” all the time but that’s never worked for me. It’s not like I’m rude or insulting. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
