    Yes,but ironically most all of my friends

    and those I have had relationships were just the opposite. I have always been content to be in the background as they took center stage allowing me to just observe others quietly yet without seeming to be standoffish. I have never been comfortable being in the spotlight nor a...

    I like to be alone a lot

    and that's the one thing that was really fun today. i also got to practice my contortion. So that was fun. I almost have my chest stand and my middle splits. But I definatly have more back flexibility. I went into a cobra but pressed my chest to the wall and layed my legs...

    I Always Enjoy Being Alone But This Is Too Much.

    My neighbors are such good people they are annoying. They are determined to get me "involved in the community."  That is not what I want. I don't enjoy happy hour with 16 other people who want to chit chat for 2 hours. I would like to find 1or 2 friends but I haven...

    That's Me Alright

    I love to be alone, I have no fear of it. When I'm alone, I can relax, do what gives me pleasure, no matter how quirky (crosswords, The Sims, watching black and white movies when it's rainy outside, or just lounging in a comfy chair and looking at magazines, etc). I can be myself...

    Why Is It Just So Hard??

    H i..I am Jassie. I am generally an introvert. I feel good about myself most of the time that I am special despite being an introvert. However, at some occasions, I just wish I could be like my other extrovert frenz who have plenty to talk about and never run out of topics...

    My favourite time of the day is being in bed at

    night alone. Either drawing or just on my phone, entertaining myself. Everybody is asleep and nobody speaks to me. I love my alone time at this time. I used to always write at this time too, I should probably do that more. I love to stay up late☺️

    I love the part of the day

    when I get back in the apartment and turn on the tea pot, turn on Netflix and enjoy ignoring text messages and phone calls

    Being Alone Is Good

    When I'm alone I'm calm. I just feel like I have everything under control. But at the same time it's starting to slap me in the face. I see TV shows with characters who have great bonds with people (LIke "How I Met Your Mother") and it just feels like a punch to the face. But why...

    Being Alone

    I really don't know if being an introvert is a good thing or otherwise.  I always tend to keep it.  You would normally notice me as that silent guy in a group discussion.  I will not say anything unless asked.  In a debate, I would play mr. passive guy and...
