2. I had a few more friends but after some mental health episodes where I completely embarrassed myself by saying a bunch of delusional wild things. I fear the 2 friends i have will leave due to my depression and mental state. How do you make friends when you can't stand the person you've become?

It varies. Sometimes I crave friendship, other times I can't stand to be around other people. It's complicated.

I have acquaintances but even they are becoming increasingly distant due to my self imposed isolation.

I used to have acquaintances too. I haven't really got any of them even any more though!

I just wanna know if it’s weird that I only have 2 people I’d actually consider solid friends, one online one irl. I usually don’t have that many friends at any given time. I feel like if those relationships fall apart my emotional state will plummet
I had two, but became a dick to them and then a burden

I technically have one. It's hard for me to think of people as friends though because I am very private and accept that everyone comes and goes.

I have 5-6 real friends and then just people I’m friendly with. Most of them don’t know I’m depressed.

Solo quiero saber si es extraño que solo tenga 2 personas a las que realmente consideraría amigos sólidos, uno en línea y otro en la vida real. Por lo general, no tengo tantos amigos en un momento dado. Siento que si esas relaciones se desmoronan, mi estado emocional se desplomará.
Mis amistades están en las suyas,pareciera que no tengo amigos reales,tengo si virtuales

Id like to meet people from this forum, at least loneliness wont be so crushing, perhaps.

I used to have two very close friends with whom I felt I could talk about anything. Unfortunately, one of them ended up severely abusing me to the point where I no longer want to live. The other friend defended her, so I had to ditch him as well. Now I have zero friends and don't plan on making any, as I don't trust anyone.

I have lots of ‘friends’ but don’t feel like I can talk to any of them about how things really are - they mostly don’t have a clue. I just carry on with the front I always put on and they think everything is great.

To be completely honest I have about 2 friends. Nothing wrong with having a small circle. Least amount of people you have to worry about stabbing you in the back.
Zero and in my 40s I don’t think I’m going to find new friends at this point
If it makes you feel any better I’m sure we can be friends here or in the next life.

One genuine friend, another I wonder if she really likes me. There are various people I'm friendly with, but they don't actually hang out with me much.

quite a lot (but no more than 10) but none of them knew my "truest" self like i'm suicidal, actual believes, sexuality etc etc. Very hard and feel lonely to lying about that, but i had to 🥲

i have 1 irl friend but she only talks/cares abt herself and we can’t even hang out cuz she moved far away and neither of us can drive, i have a handful of online friends but we’re not close and i feel like they’ve been distant with me lately, and then i have my long distance girlfriend but that relationship is strained as well :/ it’s my fault i don’t have people close to me because i push everyone away but it still hurts.
