I Am Sometimes Antisocial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41,521 People

    I am a solid 'I' (introvert/internal) on the

    MBTI, so I need non-social downtime to recharge.

    Call it being antisocial,

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

    Am I wrong for having moments in my life

    where I stay to myself? I don't try to be anti but at times I feel more comfortable being alone. I want someone to spend time with but it's hard for me to do it

    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

    I find it hard to make time

    for others, mostly because I do not want to. I mean in my head I want to but part of me says no and that part usually wins. The fear of having to interact with others in a public space is a fear that is hard to overcome.

    Well I'm always the one

    that tries to be interactive but every time I say something its like no notices I'm there and I feel ignored which is why I stay quiet I'm an out going person but people don't see it so I don't show it.

    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.

    How couldn't I be Antisocial?

    Let's be honest - the world is fill of dumb f*cks. I met so many people in my life, so many 'successfull' people - but seriously, I cant believe how they are even able to stay alive. This probably sounds weird, but as soon as I talk or just watch a person for a few minutes I'm...

    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...

    some people don't understand I'm somewhat in a

    way an "introvert" sometimes I like being by myself and just thinking to myself with earbuds in my ear. I'm not always like that tho I like having fun and being/laughing really loud... people who aren't like me always say I'm "boring" or "quiet" but that's not the case. it's...

    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.

    Sometimes those who don't socialize much

    aren't actually antisocial, they just have no tolerance for drama and fake people. 🙈

    Sometimes* is not the suitable term

    for me. I am very anti social almost all the time - I don't know the exact reason for it however. You see, I've been like this as long as I can remember. My family sees this anti social behaviour of mine and they get quite angry at me - they think I'm purposely being rude or...

    When I walk past people I am indecisive about

    whether I should make eye contact or not and it gets kind of awkward.. Like I might smile at them as they look away from me and I am glad they are not looking at me.. I am so damn creepy..

    I was always the most Introverted person you

    could know. Or not know. I never let anyone inside. I was always very quiet, always listening even when people thought no one was paying attention. Some people thought I must have ESP because I seemed to know things. I think I've just been very empathic and have a good...

    I am sometimes anti-social

    but I don't want to be. I don't even realize I am doing it sometimes. I am uncomfortable in many social situations, so I do tend to avoid them when I really shouldn't. It's not because I don't like people as a whole. I do generally like to socialize, I just often feel like an...

    I'm quite fickle when it comes to friendships

    as I normally drift from most people, I like to keep things fresh but I hate getting too close to someone as it never ends well!!

    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! :)

    Okay, so less sometimes

    and more all the time. I leave my house as little as possible. Of course that's probably because my stomach knots up just walking to the end of my driveway to check the mail. I find it very difficult to be around people that I don't know. My therapist called it Social Anxiety...

    Lately I have been very antisocial.

    I used to go out and hang out with friends but as time went on that slowly started changing. Now I sometimes tend to use excuses so I don't have to go outside, like saying I'm not home, busy with things, or feeling sick. As of now, I only hang out with one friend and some of my...
