I Fear Being Alone Yet I Am Alone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 64 People

    I Am Physically Alone.

    I have lots of great people here on EP.  So, I am not alone as far as not having anyone to talk to, but I am alone in the physical sense.  I have spoken about two sentences aloud today.  No one has touched me in days.

    I don't mind being alone, but I hate the feeling of not having any one... I guess I'm used to it. So many years of being excluded in my class.

    I like being alone. It lets you gather your thoughts, think about life, study certain topics, and best of all, you don't have to deal with peoples annoying bullsh*t.
