    I always feel like I need to push people away, or run away from them. Anyone else here feel like that?

    i feel like that too. i usually push people away because i never want to bring them down, and i never want to get close to someone who will leave

    oh yes all time because it hurts to much to have people care.

    I do, but i am working on opening up to people.

    I have a fear of abandonment.

    I'm afraid of the attention.
    I'm not used to it. Mines fear of embarassment.
    afraid of saying too much...
    And I seem to have no problem with coffee talk..
    But anything past that is where I start to avoid people.
    Its a scary and lonely thing.

    Yes, it usually arises as anger. I'll swear at all my immediate family members and just stay away from them. At school I just sit in the library reading books, no one seems to really piss me off then.

    I'm scared of being embarrassed, ashamed, just rejected. If I never try I never fail, I guess. Plus it's mixed in with some social anxiety and introversion(lol?), so it can be hard to do anything.

    I get close to people, but then I feel guilty about telling them about my problems, and then I feel awkward around them. So I run away from them, telling myself that it's going to happen again, that I'll stop talking. But I don't learn from my mistakes though. :unsure:

    I would never date someone, because everyone I care about should date somebody better than me. And I would never make friends with anyone, because they should make better friends than me.

    I have done it, I wanna die alone. Would have to much guild for leaving them just standing while I'm going, that is a real cruel thought.

    I let someone in, and it was certainly worth the pain I'm still going through, however, I'll never do it again. Having someone leave is the hardest thing someone would have to deal with, especially when you care more than anything for them. There's that, but also the fact that if you're not close to anyone, things are easier to deal with. Not caring makes life just that little bit easier.

    Also, if one day you did actually go through with it, there'd be nobody around to care, so you'd not be leaving anyone behind.

    I used to. I alot of people I've goten close to have left me before in varius ways. And I also felt that people were out to get me and that it was better to keep them away than have them hurt me later. I say used to because i've started trying my hardest to give people the benifit of the doubt, so far so good actually...

    Yes, I always do that because I get sick of the pain people bring me and the pain I bring them.
    I also do it when I need to clear my mind from it all for a while since it never ends.
