    I use to not be so "to myself".

    As I've gotten older, it seems that staying away from people has become a hard habit to break. I am naturally quiet anyway but being around most people makes me even more uncomfortable these days. It seems that the only outlet I have is the internet and sites like EP. where I...

    I Wanted To Be One

    If I lived alone, I be a real recluse. I lived alone 5 years and only went out to work and did grocery shopping. I'd buy enough for a month so I wouldn't have to go back out for a while. I've always been a loner, especially since my teen years when I realized ppl didn't...

    Am The Recluse's Recluse

    Some people thrive in chaos. I don't. I see the human society as chaotic. They say nothing can be perfect & that.. no man is an Island but.. I'm the nearest to it & my life is perfect in my Recluse.

    On Growing Up A Recluse

    When I was younger I was always quiet.  I was just in my own world.  I remember being happy and satisfied.  I would talk to people only when I knew exactly what to say.  I did not and still do not understand small talk.  It seems like a waste of time and I feel very...

    Most Of My Teens And Twenties

    I lived as a recluse and fearful of society, I was abused and abused and abused. I felt I could trust no one- and each time I did trust someone I was abused again.

    I Guess I Am...

    I don't need a lot of social interaction, so my lonely life doesn't hurt usually. I can go weeks or even months without really talking to anyone. But sometimes it hits me suddenly that there's no one around anymore. I mean, I live with my mother so naturally, I open my mouth a...

    Being a recluse is just more peaceful

    than being around people. People are always just complaining about problems they brought on themselves, talking about other people, small talk and the same tired jokes. I wish people would take a little more pride in what comes out of their mouth.

    And Its Hurting My Potential To Actually Have A Life

    I'm an extreme introvert, but not a hermit. Hermits live in the wilderness. I like my A/C. I remember being introverted as far as first grade. I remember playing with other kids when forced to, or playing by myself. One day, during play time, a child therapist observed our...
