Very insightful post and you seem to know yourself well. I am a bit like you as I know myself and I accept that I have issues but finding answers for the issues is not always easy.
I, too, have no friends as they were all connected to my job and when I retired they moved on. I also do not have any family except for my hubby and awesome kids and grandkids.
My therapist tells me to get out and make friends..............OK so I have tried taking 2 different jobs but found them both isolating and I felt sad being alone in a group that already had their own clique of friends.
I have tried volunteering but I felt very anxious, however, I will keep on working on connecting in someway, somewhere with someone.
I wish you the best,
