I've Never Quite Understood The World Around Me.

I've never quite understood the world around me. Rather, I never quite felt like the world understood me. I struggle with friendships. I crave social interactions but social situations make me uncomfortable and nervous. It's like I want to connect to people but I just don't know how. I am overall a very cheery and happy person, but I get in moods sometimes where I feel like I care more about my friends than they do for me. I also don't feel like I need a lot of friends to be happy and I don't understand when people feel the need to surround themselves with other people.

I fully understand what you are saying. I feel the same way myself. I feel like I don't know what to talk about with people. I used to be a very social person who wouldn't shut up and now that usually only happens if I'm drinking. It's a stage in life I feel everyone needs to go through, to feel out of place so that we can find our place. I'm still going through this but it does get better, as long as you stay positive.
