    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 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 am more of a selective antisocial,

    I can be really fun, talkative and funny with people I really enjoyed with, but for the others I feel so exhausted and fake when I try to talk and be nice.

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    Not even sure where to start with this.

    .. I guess I'm antisocial around mostly people I don't know. I get defensive and just assume they mean to do harm. Other times I'll be around people I know, but am not entirely friends with. These are people I know don't mean harm in any way. I grew up with them and I know them...

    When I was younger, I was molested countless of

    times. That messed me up pretty bad. I get bad nightmares, I feel so uncomfortable when I'm with guys taller or more built than I am and that's why sometimes I can be very antisocial.. No one knows that about me.

    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.

    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...
