I Feel Alienated By Social Websites

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 59 People


    I never really liked myface or spacebook. I don't really like EP either. They're narcissism traps. But I think I loathe EP the most because I only come here when I'm at my worst. I soak in whatever negativity I'm feeling. I become an awful person. I separate myself from people...

    Facebook Is Starting to Make Me Feel Alienated

    Am I ?

    For all my life I`ve felt kind of left out. Why? I`m a nice, funny, cheerful guy. I`ll help out where help is needed. I`m an ear to bend, a shoulder to cry on. Maybe I lack a certain charisma. Or maybe its that whiff of desperation that gets picked up upon as I reach out. Could...
