Default I really don't like people

I really don't like people, but they are drawn to me. I am really bubbly, and smiling, laughing all the time... Only on the outside. My life is so beautiful, yet the ultimate disaster. I'm completely lost, alone, stressed, needing help on the inside. But you will never see it looking at me.

Hi. I can understand where you're coming from. It's painful when our exterior and interior are so much at odds.

Yes indeed, I love being by myself. I don't understand people, and I don't want to. I like being left by my lonesome, inside my head. I really don't like people

Me too
Somehow, I've ended up in a job where I'm with a lot of people all day long.
It's been good for me in some ways. But I had to put a lot of work into managing my energy.

I don't either. I prefer to be alone. I don't relate with people well and I like just being able to be myself without the social pressures I feel all around me.

Yes, inside myself. No worries, no anxiety, no racing thoughts. Just me... I mean I am a bit weird. But I understand my weird... Not many people can.

Default Re: I really don't like people

I can relate to you. I don't need to be around people. I don't need to be on Facebook, Twitter, or any other "Look at me! I'm wonderful!" websites. I'm only on PC, and I'm 100% ok with that.

People (in real life) have done nothing for me. They just pull me into their chaotic endless drama. That's why I cut them all off. That's why people like you and me are at our best when we're not drowning in the sea of everyone's mess they call "life."

Toodles!

I'm very similar. I tend to care about people and want to help them, but I don't understand them at all at. I feel OK in a small group of people where everyone has passed my "danger/trust test". But at the end of the day, I need a lot of time on my own, only then I can fully relax and be myself. When I'm with people all I can think of is how not to embarrass myself and what are they thinking of me.

I tried to be nice and caring towards people. They tell me that I'm a good friend and that I care. But sooner or later they have to ruin the relationship with me by starting some nonsense drama.

This is why I've become selfish and somewhat narcissistic. It seems like when I dedicate time to those in need, all I get are problems and unnecessary issues. Then I feel guilty that I wasted my time helping people who "expect" to be helped without appreciation for what I've done for them. I'd rather stick to myself. I'm 35. I have no time to waste.
