    I Have To Hide..isolate Me From My Surroundings.

    Hi in here... I wish it was different..but I cannot live my life as most people do. Socializing, small talking, joining parties with people they know, and people they don´t know. I get stock within the first hour - and find it superficial and fake to small talk, and...

    Who Doesn't?

    I've joined or participated in several social networks, joined groups that grab my attention but every now & then I just drop out of sight(sometimes never to return). I'm sure it will happen on EP! This is because I give so much of my time & attention to them ...

    Where to Next?

     Now and again, when things get too much and I need a break, I like to drop out of sight, usually at night. I like to go into the mountains. I have some favorite secret locations I like to stay in. One is a cave. Other times when I need a...

    I'm Out Of Sight Right Now

    I dropped out of sight of everyone I know about a year ago. I spend my time a lone, reading, writing, cleaning, etc. I don't have friends anymore. It's best that way until I get rid of my demons.

    Socially Lazy

    I know I'm socially lazy and it's liberating to stay away from everyone else because I don't have to worry. I worry about offending people, looking stupid or frumpy or sad, or just being plain awkward. This habit is hurting more than helping. Sure I like my alone time very much...

    I Really Do!

    Just today, once again, I had to hear from a friend that I should remain in touch more. I should stop disappearing all of a sudden. So, I was thinking why do I really like to drop out of sight.I need it, and I guess, once in a while everyone does. The daily college routine wears...
