Hi. I am new here.
I only learned about tulpas this week. I read that they were people in your mind.
I don't know, I've thought a lot, and I don't know what to do.
Can the tulpa be bad, without any reason?
I am a lonely person. Even if it doesn't currently look like that, I still am. For 8 years I had no real friends. Well, one or two people consider themselves to be my friends, and I like them, but, as the years passed, I grew a shell around me to avoid being hurt by those who surrounded me. All people that know me, they don't really know me. They know my shell. As you can see, I currently am 16, and because half of my life was spent burying myself within my mind, I don't have any decent social skills. I don't know how to socialize. My "shell" talks and kind of socializes, even if poorly (I talk, but I don't feel anything, and I hide all that I feel, because I don't know if I should show it, or even how to show it).
I don't like being alive for the reason that I don't have any reason to. Nobody knows or understands me, and I am unable to understand my own feelings properly, and even if I do, I don't show them (I guess I am afraid of doing it).
Point being, would a tulpa help me, given that I am alone in the only place where I actually am me - my mind ? Would a tulpa understand without rejecting me? Would communication be easier than with people?
