    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...

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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.
