Nearly every human thrives from having close relationships with other humans; though for some of us these interpersonal relationships are nothing more than elusive fantasies. Having a disorder that inhibits are restricts ones ability to make and keep friendships can leave an individual feeling alone and lost in life. I know this, because I am one of these individuals.
There are times when we want only what we think is best for those we love but we should take care when holding our relationships hostage, less we become the living dead to someone that means the world to us. We should recognize that we are all each our own person, and the best thing that we can do is be supportive regardless of our own feelings.
