I am alone.

I have no one else but myself.

And I think I am beginning to be okay with that.

Introvert high school student here. Being alone is hard. You see, I have a huge passion for learning. I hate to be ignorant of something or not be able to experience something before it is too late. I learn easily, and I am probably the smartest and hardest working student in our school (sorry, bragging a bit). However, I am nowhere close to popular. The social birds that fly through the halls and collect the needy people... yeah, I will never be one of them. And it hurts, because I know that I can never experience something like that. I don't know how to approach people for a conversation, or even carry on a conversation. There isn't anything I have to say that they care about. But being alone isn't a pleasant state to be in. Keep trying, and you'll pick up a few friends here and there. I know that my friends, no matter how few, make all of the difference to me.

Thanks HigherCalling, I learned a little bit more about myself. I think I've shifted out of an introvert state into a shy extrovert state, if that's even possible. Nevertheless, I feel alone in my thoughts and feelings because I don't feel like I can convey them to other people.

Tell me. How long did it take for you to get there - ok with being alone?
