    Uncomfortable Among Strangers

    I've always been the type of person who finds myself to feel at ease the most when I am alone and relinquishing in my solitude. I recall the first day of school when I was forced to socialize with the other children I felt very nervous and uncomfortable. Growing up I...

    Whenever someone mentions

    and gives thanks for their friends here on EP or even in reality, it kind of makes me feel like I'm really alone and missing out on a lot of stuff. Then again, not many people like me.

    I dont stay in touch with loved ones as much as I should, or like to. Its an odd feeling to miss people so much but not reach out at the expense of possibly being an annoyance.
