I feel like I figured out one reason why I have always been single. Besides the fact I fall for someone who never feels the same way, I have anxiety talking to others. It’s weird because I can easily make friends. I’m well liked by others (I think). Another issue is, even though I complain about feeling lonely and wanting to be with someone, I constantly seek solitude. I literally went to the business building to study one of the study rooms because the coffee shop on campus had a bunch of people.
How can I be happy when I’m so set on making myself miserable?
I was like that when I was younger
The answer is simple; you probably don't have much in common with most of them
(and often times that is a good thing)
I think social media gives a good demonstration of the society around you
Post a topic (not here; but in a less progressive and mainstream area like a board on Facebook) and count how many people bash you in it
Then count how many people actually have something constructive to share back
This is your odds everywhere you go in public.
Most people are only programmed to persecute and crucify; as a Christian that should've been one of your first lessons.
