I Am Sometimes Antisocial

    I spend a lot of time doing things singularly

    by choice, then feeling lonely, but the truth is, I'm great company! I don't rush myself, I know when to leave, I like doing what I like doing, I don't criticize my own driving and I always manage to listen to the right music for the right mood! Out of necessity, I've learned...

    Sometimes I just don't feel like talking to

    anyone. There's been a time where I've just been locked in my room for a straight 2 weeks. I feel like sometimes nobody wants me around so I stay away..

    I admit it. Sometimes I ditch people.

    I disappear. Or if I see someone at a store or some place, I'll ditch them.

    Just because someone is quiet doesn't mean they

    don't want to talk to you. Sometimes we just don't know how. Sometimes were the most loving people so don't judge a book by its cover! :)

    There are some days when I just want to sit

    and eat my lunch by myself. It's not that I couldn't meet up with a friend or sit with some co-workers or classmates. It's just that some days I don't want to make small talk. I don't want to hear about your day. I just want to sit by myself in quiet, enjoy my meal and reflect...

    Sometimes I have to push myself to answer the

    phone or accept an invitation to hang/go out with friends. Once I'm out I end up having a great time but it's the initial contact that makes me want to hide in my shell. Ugh I hate it. I wish I was naturally extroverted.

    I like listening to people talk,

    because I find it easier to just listen/watch how a person acts before I finally decide to say something to them.

    I Am Always Antisocial Its not

    because i am socially awkward or anything, in fact if I didn't think so low of myself, I'm sure Id pick back up my knack for making friends. I always used to make friends very easily when I was a child, I was much more outgoing and confidant back then. My personality can thrive...

    Just so we're clear, the term antisocial has

    NOTHING to do with a persons ability to socialize and is not used to describe those who are shy, inhibited, reclusive, or withdrawn. Rather, it implies a rebellion against society, a denial of the obligations that tie individuals to one another. Most of you are obviously...

    Sometimes, I feel so tired of pretending

    that everything is okay, and being there for everyone who's not there for me at all. Sometimes it is just easier for me to shut down for a while and be called "antisocial". People are sometimes sooooo hard to deal with

    I need to get a life.

    I'm too afraid I'll be too shy and clam up! What if I hate it? I'm thinking about doing a dance class but I really can't imagine myself leaving the house. I'm too afraid of people to try anything.
