But Why.

I have been all my life... I can do it on my own. I don't need help. I hate asking for things and I know because of that I miss out on a lot. I don't want to be a loner, I wish that I could let people in and that I wasn't always afriad that people would do the worst. I don't trust people..  I think it has to do with me not being that great of a person. I'm scared that I will always be alone.. I just don't know what to do..

A shrink once asked me: What evidence do you have to prove that you are not that great a person? After looking at it I could come up with nothing concrete other than the fact that I had talked myself into believing it. Our minds are very powerful, we can talk ourselves into a lot of things. <br />
I might be way off base, but to my way of thinking a person who's not very great doesn't wonder whether they'll always be alone or admit to having this as a fear - they would just go about making other people's lives miserable just to vent their own inadequacies. <br />
I believe that a great person would say something exactly as you have written above: I don't want to be like this, I'm too afraid to ask for help, I don't trust people, I'm scared that I will always be alone. Those are things that great people ask themselves and even greater people go on to fix, change or learn to live with. You're ok, and you're going to get even better. :)
