    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 don't get it. I feel like an outsider.

    I'm described by people as a "true gentleman" or just really nice guy. I'm passionate and love making people happy. There's just one problem.. I can't stand people? I like people and crave some sort of communication or brotherhood . But I don't have that with anyone. And I don't...

    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...

    Everytime I have to walk through groups of people in the streets,college or any other place I feel very uncomfortable. The first thing I feel like doing is looking down to avoid eye contact, mainly because people really look at me. I have big ears and I admit it, I'm a little bit...

    I'm not sure what's happening with me.

    But I'm living more then just a double life. I've gone absolutely insane, and nobody knows. I'm battling a range of mental health issues and one of them is all about keeping silent, holding back, not doing anything. I feel strangled. Little actions people do for me can...
