    Some people just are

    and there is nothing wrong in the fact. Dont we all like our own company at times. It takes strength to be a 'loner' as you have to be happy with yourself in order to do it. The problem can arise when you are a loner for emotional reasons such as being hurt too much by...

    There's Nothing Wrong With Wanting to Be Alone...is There?

    I am a very introverted person and simply don't like to have too much company. Sure there are people I talk to, some of them I consider to be friends, but after all I'm rather alone. I can feel rather drained if too many people are around me. i spend most of my free time to...

    Man Of Stone, Walks Alone

    I should really stop doing this, because it doesn't really make me feel any better about anything going on in my life; but at the same time, I find myself addicted. I enjoy viewing people's photos on Facebook, or trolling through Photobucket for public albums. I see all these...

    Loners,

    Why is it that people who have been rejected, chewed up and spit out, gutted by "friends", "family" and the world make the best and most loyal friends? I had a crappy childhood. Friends, they came and went. I'm an introvert and just could never keep up with social games, the...

    "I hate "fun" people.

    I hate group work, because it makes me feel out of place. I hate break time because it emphasizes how isolated I am from everyone else. And I hate people in cliques because it feels like they're advertently rejecting me."

    It's really by choice.

    I don't like many people, especially not around here. I hate trashy people, and there is an abundance of them here. Eh, most of my friends don't hold my interest for very long either. Life is feeling very unfulfilling at the moment.

    I Enjoy My Time Alone

    I don't feel like I have to be someone else. I don't have to talk. I don't have to pay attention to what someone else is saying. I can wear my pj's all day. I don't have to answer silly questions or laugh at corny jokes. When I am alone I no longer feel lonely. I feel relieved.
