Question: Is there something wrong with me or is this normal for a shy person?
I am a very shy person. I hardly ever speak compared to the amount that my friends speak. I am very apethetic to most things in life. There are many days that I would just rather spend all by myself. Sometimes I would say that I get to the point that I actually start to hate people. There will be times that I am eating lunch or any meal at the schools cafeteria and somebody will come up and sit next to me at the table. Sometimes, not all of the time, I get mad or frustrated, I keep it to myself though. Sometimes I just cannot wait to get to my dorm room and just chill there all by myself. I tried dating somebody a few months ago but could not go any further becasue I just did not have the emotional connection.
sometimes I get pretty sad/depressed. Sometimes I get depressed because I start to question why I am thinking like this, and why I cant just enjoy things more easily. Sometimes I get depressed and I have no apparent reason at all. Probably happens quite often compared to normal people. I seem to have not much enthusiasm for most things in life. People will be joking with me, just being plane sarcastic, and saying stuff like "haha, you just didnt have it in you to break my record today. You tried, you almost smoked it, but you crashed and burned." I know they are joking because that is the way that that group of friends interacts with each other, however, I will put on a fake smile and laugh, but in reality I just want to punch the person. I do, however, have a love, that is a sport, I do not think the sport matters for this topic. I am very careless towards my relationships with other people.
Is prefering to spend a lot of time by yourself common among many shy/introverted people?
What would you say about the other stuff?
I can't really relate with a lot of this as I am very extroverted, however, I did want to mention that I have a friend who's been going through depression and he said a lot of the same things to me, that he didn't really want to see people any more, they annoyed him, that he would get frustrated by them and found it difficult to take jokes. I'm not saying you have depression, I'm far from any sort of doctor, but if it worries you that you feel depressed about the way you feel towards other people, I would definitely recommend a therapist. I know that gets joked about a lot in society today in a negative light, but there's nothing negative about it. I can openly admit that I had a therapist when I was younger, and while I didn't enjoy it at the time, I would say it was a good thing for me. My personal experience with a therapist was learning to deal with bullying, and I think it probably helped me with that quite a bit. If there is something that a medical professional thinks might be wrong, they have the power to get you prescriptions that will make it easier to bear, and if not, if nothing else, you lose what? Maybe a couple bucks and a few hours to realize it's not right for you. Not a bad investment if you ask me. And who knows? Maybe it would just help you to talk through some things and the stresses of your week with a confidant.
I'm the same way, I always prefer to be alone rather than be around people. When i'm around people, especially if its a large group of people I instantly get in a frustrated mood. & I'm VERY shy so i'm guessing it's normal for a shy person and about the whole part of getting sad/depressed I have those exact problems too. I'm still trying to figure out how to get over all of it myself though.
I guess u lyc 2 stay alone...... U don't lyc ppl around u.... Wel i guess shy ppl feel shy 2 interact wid other ppl dn if they get used 2 a particular person they r very free wid them..... But in ur case its a bit different u don't lyc ppl around u i guess...... May b itz not ur shyness......
I love being alone at school. It makes the day go so much faster
