I Prefer Being Alone
I've always preferred being alone. I'm not the type who makes friends easily. I've only had one close friend outside of my family, and even that didn't last for long.
It's not that I'm afraid of people. I'm just not interested in making friends and in socializing. I've always preferred staying in one corner and reading something or just sitting there and thinking.
When I was younger, I thought that there was something wrong with me. People around me always commented that I was so quiet and that I need to become more sociable.
When I entered college, I tried to make friends because my parents often bugged me about it. I got tired of trying. I just wasn't interested in it.
Anyway, I think that my college years were the best years in my life (so far). People just left me alone, unlike in high school, where there was a pressure to conform. It was also during college when I was able to stay in the library almost everyday. It was almost like heaven for me.
