I've always had trouble with truly connecting with people. Many people seem to enjoy chitchats and fleeting contacts. I've always been looking for more. I strive to have real conversations with people, actually getting to know them and investing in learning about their lives and characters. I'm very serious about friendships.
I struggle with depression and this has made it much harder for me to make contact with people; to meet new people and to keep in touch with the friends I already had. I've become very good at isolating myself from most of my friends. Also, I have been and still am so low on energy, I just don't want to go out to meet people and do a lot of stuff. But I do still long for that genuine contact with people, even though life sometimes overwhelms me.
I'm so, so incredibly glad I found Slowly! It fits with me perfectly. I get to have actual quality contact with people, and I can do it at my own pace, at my own time, in all the quietness, and I always have someone to talk to. Slowly is something that I didn't even know I missed until I installed it.
I just wanted you to know that you truly do great work! This is the bridge I needed to get in touch again, and I do really feel like I am in touch again with the world, thanks to all the great conversations I'm having now with such sweet people. Thanks for this app, from the bottom of my heart! ❤️ Keep rocking.
