Just Me

These past few years i've become really secluded from other teens. I'm 16 and i used to enjoy hanging out with others when i was younger. Nowadays those same people i used to hang with always go out to parties and i find myself saying home. I really feel uncomfortable at large parties so i rather stay home and just lie down i the dark and think about my life,people and events that have happened. I kinda enjoy doing that but at times i feel like being surrounded with people i know. I go to school on a day and talk to alot of people but as soon as i get home i completely shut off myself from the outside world. And then i look at other persons and see how much friends and attention they are getting and i start to get envious. It's soo conflicting!! On one hand i love being alone and on the other i want to chill with my friends but not at these large scale clubs and parties they go to. Sometimes when these friends reach out to communicate with me i just don't respond. I really just don't know.

Hey u knw wat?<br />
I feel exactly the same<br />
And when ppl ask me if I want to go out, I always try to find excuses. However somehow I want ppl to hang out with me,ect...<br />
Conflicting indeed! sigh

im like that to i basically only chill with my best friend other than that, large groups are a very very uncomfortable experience 2 me

Thank you! That article was really on point with how I felt.<br />
I really,really,really thought i was the only person who felt this way

Hi! What you feel is normal for introverts (like me!). It is a personality trait where a person:<br />
-Enjoy time alone<br />
-Consider only deep relationships as friends<br />
-Feel drained after outside activities, even if they were fun<br />
-Are often good listeners<br />
-Appear calm and self-contained<br />
-Think then speak or act<br />
<br />
I really got to understand myself better when I knew that i am an introvert. Read the link below. It's about traits of an introverted personality trait. It helped and encouraged me somehow. =)<br />
