    I dont even know what to say

    when I'm with my friends anymore, or my family. It just feels awkward and distant. I dont enjoy spending time with anyone anymore, and I feel guilty for it.

    Sensative

    I'm very sensative to negativity. I never understood people. I do now. I'm still distant from most everyone in the world. I want to remain alone. I am not a social person. I can be nice to people who are nice to me. But I don't go looking for conversation, often. I can't relate...

    Holding It In

    I have a wife who I can not communicate with and it seems to make it hard to communicate with anybody else.  I am just so used to holding everything in.

    Feeling Distant.

    I hope I'm not reaching depression, but I've been feeling distant lately. During the summer I was fine and the beginning weeks of school, but now I feel disconnected from the world. Maybe I'm trying to juggle too many activities. It almost feels as if I clock out from the world...

    I Am So Distant.

    I'm like floating around all by myself out here.  I just need Andrew to get here and pick me up, I guess.  He's the only person who won't make me feel worse.

    Distant

    I feel like my lack of trust in people has caused me to push them away and distance myself. I don't like it, and I want to change it, I just don't know how. I used to be able to talk to people and be a part of groups really easily, but after some major changes in my life that...

    Yeah....

    There are times when I feel very distant from people, an abnormality. The people I feel I should connect to seem not to be "there", but I am not sure if it is me or them. There are those people who I am truely connected to who bring me back, but still, the feeling rarely fades...

    Distancing Never Helped Anybody!

    I've suddenly come to realize that I am not really who I thought I was. I used to think that I knew everybody, everybody knew me, and I was liked by everyone. That was until Camp Middle School came around. All of the schools in the district come together as one school and of...

    Alone.

    I just feel like I am floating on a raft on the dark ocean all by myself.  At any minute a shark will come and bite my raft, causing me to sink.

    In My Own World

    I feel like I've been growing more distant from everybody lately... Barely noticing if somone calls for me, spending less and less time with my friends, neglecting some of my duties... Is this a side effect of being alone for so long?
