September 13, 2019:

The dynamic is exacerbated by depression.
Granted you lack the energy to reach out,
it'll be the charmers and the narcissists who reach out to you.
It'll be only later that agendas of hidden envy reach the surface.

That's a real concern, but it's also an excuse.
This is part of how depression plays you:
you can't trust your logic, so you avoid decisions.
