“A contented person bonds with other people, but when you can’t do that, you will bond with something that gives you a sense of relief.” – Kurzgesagt (here)
Family? Only close to my mother.
Friends? Several loose friends, only one close friend.
Longest relationship? Less than six months.
Always thinking, always discussing with myself. No one to open up with, to share my thoughts and feelings with on a regular basis. Usually quiet. Always been a lone wolf that very rarely asks for help and assistance.
Point is I am not social, which may come as a surprise to a few.
Notorious lurker online. Just like in person, I think a lot but don’t say much. I take in a lot of information but don’t share a comment and interact with others.
This was wrong. All wrong.
This is something that was drastically wrong in my 20s in-order to overcome this habit. This is one of a few reasons why I have started writing about my experiences of overcoming this habit. To connect, discuss and share my experiences that would hopefully help others. I also need to meet people in general and open up with them. Try and create meaningful connections.
If I don’t, I will be lonely with millions of explicit websites that prey on people like me.
