    That Doesn't Mean I Like It

    It just means I'm used to it. I can go to a movie theater by myself. I can eat out at a fancy restaurant or a fast food place alone. I can walk around the mall on my own. That's me the majority of the time. I guess I don't necessarily have to like it all the time. As long...

    Only Child

    I am very use to doing most things alone since I am an only child. I had no one to help me when Mum was out & dad was at work.

    Back in school, we had to do group projects.

    Nobody wanted me, or I was forced into a group. Even then, I was ignored and blamed for not doing anything even though they never told me what to do

    After a while of people not wanting to do

    anything with you unless they need you, you get used to being left out and have to get stuff done on your own. It's alright though it can only making you stronger

    I get overwhelmed if there are other people in

    the room, and having the house to myself is ideal! I focus better and feel more comfortable if there's no people around. Not sure why this is?
