Things That I Hate

Natural Loneliness

I hate how I just naturally seclude myself. Just today at lunch I was called a lone soul, and I thought about it deeply for some reason. Then I realized I don’t belong to any group. I don’t hang out. I walk home alone. I walk to school alone. So I’m sitting there wondering how to maybe begin a more or less social life and a person asks to sit near me, so I say okay, and ignore them for the rest of the lunch period. Why? Why must I instinctively push people away?

  1. I was just like you in school, and I haven’t really changed. So I strongly advise you to seek help, whether it be from books on the subject or a therapist. I don’t know what causes it, but something does, and you need to find out, because I know it won’t fix itself.

  2. It’s like anything you’re not used to, you’re afraid of it. Kind of like bike jumps, before you do a big jump, it’s scary. Once you do it, though, you want to do it over and over again. Your situation is a bit more complicated but still the same. Just start with an introduction and you will be getting to know each other in no time.
