    So humans are social creatures right? I am, or was, actually pretty social. I have heaps of friends and used to go out and party every weekend. but now I just want to be left the hell alone. I just want to do my own thing and I feel like people who want to do something with me are intruding on my alone time. I get bored really easily when i visit people and keep brushing people off. I guess I feel theres so much to do in this world, so much experiences and opportunities Id rather be trying to do them then wasting time socializing. And no, I dont want to 'share these experiences/opportunities' with my friends. Selfish as it sounds, I would rather indulge myself then have to worry or accomodate about other people.

    Anyone else feel the same way?

    Yes! Yes yes yes. I feel exactly like this.

    But everyone keeps telling me it's not normal, and so I try to catapult myself out of it by pretending to be sociable again (I used to be very sociable, more so than most I'm sure. I had so many numbers in my phone book I needed to keep two phones). I was out at least 3 times a week doing something with someone or other.
    But now I have 2/3 friends who aren't really 'friends' at all, just sort of like casual acquaintances who I catch up with every few weeks or months and it's even a job to want to see them.
    I feel like I just want to be on my own and fix myself, accept and enjoy being alone, find myself and indulge myself without having to worry about or accommodate others either.

    I can also relate. I often dream about taking a road trip alone. Seeing sites, and doing whatever I want without having to care about what someone else wants to do. Doesn't that sound relaxing?

    Sounds blissful.

    It's like I always say "with people, come problems... no woman no cry" (okay technically I didn't pen that last line! lol)
