I have always been a solitary person and I love it most of the time. I enjoy being on my own. It's the only time I feel I can completely be myself. When around others, I'm constantly waiting to get away from them so that I can be on my own again. However, I get very, very lonely at times. But I have no social skills and do not know how to talk to people or how to make friends. I also get scared when around people. I feel that most people don't understand me or the way I think, and it makes me even more afraid to be around them. I wish that I had friends, but at the same time, I love being alone. I love my solitude and I worry that having friends would take my solitude away and leave me very unhappy. Even more unhappy than I am now.
