    I find it so hardto stay connected in a comunity. Forgetting or avoiding for months, even without switching being the reason.

    Anyone else have issue with that? Is this just a me thing or is it something to do with the disorganized attachment stuff?

    Any tips on staying connected, or is it just a thing ima have to like set reminders for and force myself to do the hard way?

    I can relate to this. Don’t have any answers, but you are not alone.

    I can relate.

    Sometimes I schedule it into my phone’s calendar as a reminder to “consider” trying to do something, and I’ll set it to repeat was often as I want.

    Just to put it in my mind’s eye a bit more, and as an exercise to challenge my avoidant behaviour, using some DBT and CBT skills.

    Even just try visit a forum, not necessarily committing to commenting or posting.

    Unsure if something like that could be of help.

    I wish you luck in finding and learning to sustain a sense of safe connection.
