    I Pushed Everyone Away.

    I'm 20 years of age. I'm funny, kind, original, and caring. But I'm also upset, afraid, confused and lost. I let the bad overcome the good. I'm changing one day at a time.

    thought that they may hurt me. At first I thought it was my strength, now I see its my weakness. If I don't do something about my isolated ways soon I fear I'll truly be alone.

     I am 4 months to being done with my contract. I've thought about cutting off from the world completely.  What would it be like to live as a hermit?  To only interact with other people when I felt like it?  I imagine it isn't so easy to live like that in today...

    I Hate It.

    The only time I see or really talk to people is when I go to the store.  This cannot be healthy.  I isolate so much that I may not make it home for thanksgiving which is not that far away.  I just don't wanna go out and see people.

    while due to studies, other problems arising at the same time. I know no one has missed me, it's false lies when someone says you will be missed. There's 7 billion other people that can take my place. If I had died all this time (on 2nd attempt) no one has said RIP or would...

    Keep Calm And Carrion

    What you see is what I fret- People don't ask me questions. People think I walk on air and polish stars, but I live in lava and battle beasts from invisible wilds. And when it's all done, I hide my wounds from others under my ample vineer of phoniness. My endurance and self...

    I Am Isolated

    When I divorced I had to sever all ties.  I do not have a social network to speak of.  I have difficult meeting people.  I keep coming across people that aren't right in the head.  I wish I could meet someone available that doesn't have chemical addictions.

    I Avoid People As Much As I Can

    I still go to college, etc but any moment I can be alone I am. Whether it is sitting in my room listening to music or taking long walks in the middle of the woods, I just can't stand people, hate them.

    Candles lit. In the middle of nowhere on a 45

    acre farm. Under my comforters with my favorite books next to me. I wonder if Robison Crusoe felt like this? Anyone else out there in solitude? Happy Holidays.

    Moonlit Lake

    I miss summer so much. The people around me are getting so boring and obnoxious. Days like today I don't want to have anything to do with anyone. Last summer I spent a large amount of time with my best friend at her dad's house. They live on the lake and whenever I wanted to be...
