    Isolation ain't a curse.

    Nor does it mean you are reclusive. It means you're taking a break to focus more on yourself than others. People are ego centric, demanding, they will do all sorts of things to you especially if you're an emotional person. Thing is even if you shut down the world and go back...

    sometimes i'm in no mood to talk others

    or solve their trivial problems. i just want to be left totally alone. but then people come up to me and say " what happened? you seem sad". and that irritates me so much cause being silent does NOT mean being sad.

    It's been almost three years

    that I've never met anyone new in person. I only read philosophy and focused on my painting. I guess these days I just want to talk to somebody sometimes. I'm alone and I got away from people very often.

    I rarely ask for help,

    not in the sense that I think I can handle all things by myself, but rather because as much as I can, I do not want to share any burden or responsibility with other people who probably have their own as well. And being put in the position of a team leader, when you're not...

    When you start losing the things you thought

    you cannot do without, you sometimes feel like throwing off everything else and locking out everyone; even those who might have helped.

    I just get upset sometimes

    when I'm working. I need to leave and isolate myself from everyone. Some people just like to give orders and not take them. Others are only good at receiving help and won't give a person help.

    I'm an introvert. Sometimes I need to be alone.

    It's not that I don't like people or I hate anyone or I'm sad. I just need to re energize by myself, with a book and maybe some tea.

    Everything seems meaningless to me now.

    I have a dream but I can't chase it. I studied hard but I still failed my exams. I tried to be nice to people but they took it for granted. I'm so hurt. I just want to run away from everything. My life is just so meaningless, stressful and painful.

    It's so hard to explain to an extrovert

    why you want to be alone. It's not because you don't appreciate their company. It's not because you hate going outside. It's because social gatherings drain you and alone time recharges you. It's that simple.

    I prefer to be alone most times.

    Not in some emotional way, just because I prefer to work or do my thing alone. I hate a lot of people I work with and the customers I have to help. So I prefer finding a why to do things by myself where I can concentrate better.
