It Makes People Think I'm Anti-social And WeirdI often need time alone away from everyone else. I struggle to get through a day without this "special time". On family occasions like Christmas and things where I'm constantly surrounded by distant relatives, I need to get away for a bit every few hours. Just relax and listen to music.
One time during a family wedding where we were all away at the location for an entire week I went out one night and was gone for hours on a beach. People just thought I was miserable and in a bad mood, but I just needed time alone. My family is a nightmare, but at this time no one had particularly annoyed me, I just needed to be alone with my thoughts.
