In and Out

been told that i should snap out of it, i should enjoy other peoples company. "once you get out of the circle of anxiety and low self worth, you'll want to be with people. you'll be with them because you enjoy being with them, you enjoy the conversations, you'll enjoy participating. you'll go out" "but what about when i'm not with them?" "but you will be with them, because you'll go out more" "i can't be with them all the time though". and you cant be with them all the time. and i dont want to be with them all the time.

I wish I knew how to have a social life. Due to my anxiety, it gets bad and I can't be around too many people or in a very busy, noisy crowd. Kids makes my anxiety get real bad..

as i've found with everything in life ... there's a balance that must be achieved. i've not yet balanced my socializing abilities so i'm either overly social and want people around ALL the time or i'm anti social and enjoy the solitude. currently i'm all about the solitude. i've been told after some time of this behaviour it becomes unhealthy ... i can see that. but i don't wanna mess with people! lol

a little, maybe. but i just generally dont mind being on my own. some breathing space. but sure, i can get addicted to people.

I'm not sure where you're going with this? Are you saying that you are worried that if you do start enjoying people's company, you'll be worried that you will feel bad when there is nobody about?
