Worry about you first, then maybe he might feel different in the future.
 
If they don’t want to talk to you, the best way to show them respect is to not mess with them, I’m sure you have other things to do right now.
 
Don’t attack people, or your life could be decided for you.
 
Do you live with him? How did he just show up?

How do you cope with reality in a healthy way?  
I haven’t been able to see my friends, and they won’t pickup on calls anyways.. it’s been a while since I last saw their faces.
 
Online school has been hell, my grades are dropping but I don’t care enough about it.
 
Videogames are merely a time waster for me, just something to get to sleep quicker and end the day faster, a unproductive distraction.
 
I don’t have any good books, I’ve reread the same book about dairy I have 3 times now. The rest of the books I have are old children’s books.
 
I don’t have any hobbies, I can’t pursue anything since all the fun things you can do are closed, like bowling or golfing.

I miss the show so much
Thigs just keep getting worse every day. The next three months are already unsalvageable. I don’t have a single positive thing to look forward to anymore.

This is really trivial (especially when compared to the more recent things posted here) but a few old friends have been trying to get back in touch with me.
 
I’m glad they still think about me and want to catch up. I’ve thought about contacting them, myself. But it’s ridiculous how much I’m putting off talking to them. Mainly because I’m expecting the conversation to go something like “So how was college?” “Dropped out.” “Oh. Well where do you work?” “I don’t.” “Oh. Got a girlfriend?” “Nope.”
 
I just expect them to think I’m a loser. Then I think if they are that judgmental, why should I care? I’d just go back to not talking to them and nothing would really change.
 
What’s wrong with me? It’s not like I’m jealous of them. Is it pride? I didn’t think I had much of that left either.

watching things on youtube is mostly enough to keep me from thinking about the meh stuff in life. i also have this garden going thats pretty exciting. its neat to see food grow. dont really have the motivation to play video games or read much anymore. also have a few random collections. but havent really added to any of them because a lack of money. but my biggest collection is video game stuff. i also got this small laserdisc collection i want to expand. one of my favorite media types, just as cool as music cassettes, lol.
 
probably an unpopular opinion but some time back my favorite distraction used to be to take psychedelics every weekend, did that off and on for 3 years till i lost my job and wasnt getting that good pay anymore.

Maybe, I don’t know them. Still, you should take that risk. Why? Because, you don’t know if you could be walking away from something good either. I’ve seen depression and people who start to think they are loser and they start a toxic process of walking away from opportunities like this that further their isolation. Pushed away friends that helped. If they simply dissmiss you as a loser then walk away, but you can’t know that till you contact them.
 
Do it.

I second the gardening for sure! NO on the psychedelics
