    Does anyone else feel like they are socially

    retarded sometimes? I can write. But I can't form complete thoughts and ideas verbally. And moms feelings are hurt I guess... Because I don't say goodnight and I don't talk to her much. She's very needy. I'm not needy at all. I prefer being alone because talking is so hard for...

    Sometimes being the operative word.

    Sometimes I find it too much of an effort to socialize with people, other times it's just so easy. I think we all have those day's where we want to block out the world.

    So, today I had my birthday party

    for family and friends, my real birthday is tomorrow. I invited my family and 2 of my closest friend. I have a form of social anxiety and I find it hard to be in the centre of attention. Everything was going well until my friends left. My family was seated on the left side of...

    I kind of forgot how to have

    friends/relationships. I focus a lot on my job, and i don't really talk to my old friends anymore. I don't want to be alone, but I got pretty good at it

    Call it being antisocial,

    call it social anxiety. Either way being alone is best <3

    Not sometimes but pretty much

    when I'm around people. There's this phase going on where everyone's like I'm so antisocial. No you're not, you don't studded on every word you say, talk so quiet no one can hear you, only say 5 words a day, or you can't continue on a conversation without a struggle. I couldn't...

    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 look forward to getting unplugged on

    Sundays: Lock the gates. Lock the main door. Unplug door bell. Turn off cell phones. Unplug telephone line. No television. Dogs into the kennels. Just pure solitude.

    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...

    I think the fact I don't meet many new people

    who I find interesting and can have good conversations with is a contributor to my lack of interest socially sometimes. My interests aren't exactly left-field but I can't seem to connect with people regardless. But then again, I've given up on adapting for the sake of it as it's...

    I always feel like people have ulterior motives.

    They just make me anxious. I couldn't go to school today because I'm antisocial and anxious. Hell, I nearly had a mental breakdown in a Starbucks because there were other people there.
