    Op here. The reason why I made this thread is because I want to share an experience I had yesterday.
    >This is what I though it was going to be a 2 days 30km trip through the forested mountains of the Basque country
    >Confuse trail so I ended up making very little progress the first day
    >Night was miserable
    >Due to gear problems, I spend the night wet, cold and uncomfortable
    >Having a lot of time for my though, I think about how lonely I feel. I wonder if I choosed the right path on my life
    >Once daytime, I feel better and apreciate of beutiful the place I am in is
    >So far so good until luch time comes, and I decide to smoke hash
    >Sudently start feeling this extreme anxiety
    >Im craving human contact, I feel frightened about expending another might there. I think about of scary the world truly is, feel like Im once again that vulnerable child who wouldnt stand for himself
    >Realize I just made one third of the route
    >I quit
    >At least made a little mountain top

    I feel defeated but I know that I made the right decision. At the end is about learning from the experience and becoming stronger each day. I still have issues to solve but thats okay.
    I will come back

      Your problem is that you are a manchild.
      You need to grow up and un-gay yourself.

      i go out to be alone, amongst other things. no one you have to keep entertained or make happy, no one to flake on plans, no one to rush you or slow you down. you just do your own thing at your own pace. i think a lot of people dislike out because they're afraid to be alone, but it's easier for me than being surrounded by people.

      you are a child. You shouldn't be smoking that stuff unless you are a fully formed man with actual accomplishments under his belt as well. If you are depressed and uncertain about how your life has turned out and your future, you should be sharpening yourself, not dulling yourself with drugs and whining about being a failure or something

      Don’t smoke weed when by yourself you uneducated Black person.

      Weed is best shared with good friends after a successful hike. Pic related buddy and I got higher than giraffe pussy, drank a 12er of cheap beer and swam in a river. Was too busy to be anxious.

      Solo camping is for thugging it out, you’re supposed to be slightly afraid and you should absolutely be alert because you’re no longer some homosexual tourist getting lit, you’re part of the woods.

      Mate, some advice. What you felt the first night and in the morning is pretty much what PrepHole is all about. Conditions and hardships causing this misery which then turns into almost a pride and beauty the next day. I don't think you can appreciate a beautiful morning the same way without having a lonely wet night beforehand. You made the mistake when you smoked hash and decided to bail. Go back out there and do it again right this time. Trust me, one day you will wake up in perfect comfort in your home and wish you were miserable.

        You need MORE time to think, not less. There's a reason why you can't just sit and think to yourself for a few days without becoming existential, and it's best found by leaning into the experience. You're not supposed to constantly be distracted by the modern world to the point where you don't know yourself and can't sit still when alone.

        Do it again, and find your true purpose through solitude. That's a natural part of existence.

    being alive involves a lot of dread, pain, loneliness etc.facing these things is very humbling and not usually pleasant but it is real. sometimes doing that will help you make better choices and end up happier, sometimes you just have to learn how to move with the pain. either way it's worth doing.

      that said it's not like every outing has to be a meditation on the pain of existence or whatever. there's a lot of little things you can do to make yourself more comfortable. and learning to care for yourself like that is one of the most important lessons taught by going out. so fix whatever's wrong with your gear, lay off the hash, bring a friend or a dog or a comfy book next time. do it out of love for yourself anon!

      It was only one that trip that I realize ai might have desper wound than I though. On my daily life I become distracted by the Internet, and all the bullshit daily life chored, but I usually feel an underlying anxiety wich has no concrete cause. It was only by being alone that this pain struck me with all its magnitude. I feel miserable but I didnt even know it

      Lonliness is a luxry that occurs onlt to people who have too much time to feel it and not enough shit going on to have to focus on that.

      Got frends? Not me anymore, they're all older and running off to troon out and get mentally ill or they are as busy as I usually get.
      Got a home? You can always clean it out and improve on your spaces.
      Got a car? Go anywhere that isn't isolated for fren oppertunities.
      Got an outside? Go there alone if you WANT to be alone. That's a feature not a bug anon.
      You choose how you use your days and if you want people in them, it's not like there's not some obnoxious amount of morons already shitting everything up everywhere. You just have to bring people, go to people, ask people or be there when others show up. It's not that complicated. You got out there and were in a less optimal place and got wigged out. It's normal for people under 25 to be unused to any adversity whatsoever. You are tempering yourself every time you have an experience like this. So keep it up and eventually you will consider this a laughable problem. That's how age and experience works. But it helps to be experiencing a lot of things. Make sense?

      So keep going. Alone or not if you get stuck you will be alone in a far worse way than doing stuff and being alone. At least if you improve, strive and try you can insulate and strengthen yourself. Then before you know it, you're 30 and you've done more shit than the average person and very little phaes you because you are the one thing that you need to be, experienced. So keep going out and getting experiences. IF you're moving you're improving and all that.

    Sorry there's very little actual advice in here, OP. I know exactly how you feel.

    >How do you deal with loneliness while being PrepHole?
    I don't go out when I know I'm going to feel lonely. I've done quite a bit of solo backpacking and car camping, and I've hated almost every single second of those experiences. They were almost all for work, and the only things that got me through were podcasts I'd listen to at night until I fell asleep.

    I'm fine solo hiking during the day, though. I enjoy my alone time, especially when I have something active to do (e.g., botanizing, birding, photography). If you feel lonely and anxious even on short day trips, I'd suggest picking up some naturalist-oriented hobbies to keep your mind active. Try to identify the plants and animals you see, especially the often overlooked ones.

    What you've learned about yourself is very important, though. Listen to that part of yourself. Don't do things that only make you miserable with no reward. There's no shame in that.
