I Am Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,678 People

    Well I always was antisocial,

    it use to just be a mask but now its just me and I'm surprisingly 100% okay with that because I like being alone to tell you the truth. Basically everyone at my school is just society's ***** so they can gain popularity and have a life.

    I wasn't always anti-social.

    As a young kid, I talked to everyone and always had a group of friends that I spent the entire day with. When I moved as a teen, I lost touch with all of my friends and was thrown into a school where everyone around me seemed so fake, coming from the area I came from beforehand...

    I really don't like socialising

    or going out. I'm ok with this but just wish everyone else could accept it's the way I am. I stay away from making new friends cos I don't want the hassle of declining socialising at party's and clubs etc. if a friend comes round I'm just thinking when will they go! I just want...

    My whole life, I've been misunderstood

    and I didn't have someone I could talk to honestly, so I learned to live inside myself and not let anyone in. And that's why I dont like to talk to other people.

    I'm like the earth. I look perfect. But inside I'm dying slowly, painfully. I want to kill everyone. People will always hate. People will always love. People will be people. And that leads to broken hearts. You'd think with current technology we would've invented a cure...

    to be alone. Whenever I go out with friends that I don't see often, I automatically want to leave. It is just not fun to me. I love it when I am in a small gathering of very close friends and family, but not for too long. I also do not like staying out late. It gives me...

    Talking to people just feels like a lot of work

    I like being alone. Being around other people

    drains me and gives me headaches! When I do get in the mood to socialize, I need a drink to open up and enjoy myself. Then I usually drink to much and embarrass myself.

    As a kid I craved popularity.

    Most of us did. Now, I kinda just want people to go away. I don't use social media. I don't pop open my laptop to see who said what about who or what. I don't care. I don't actually even own a laptop. I see what's in front of me. I deal with those who are around me...
