Thank you @TheVorticon for sharing your experience.
I do feel anxiety is playing a big role for me. I find though I tend to push people away. I'd rather be alone - whether it's because I know the feelings I'm having will cause shame, embarrassment etc or because I don't want to hurt them with my behaviours or something else, but I know when the intensity is overwhelming I'd rather be alone.
