Anyone else?

Sometimes I get antisocial for no apparent reason. I just don't want to talk to anyone or sometimes be around anyone. It doesn't seem like a big deal but as time has progresses it seems to be getting worse. I sometimes go days without talking to friends and sometimes even avoid my family that I live with. Like one day I just didn't want to talk to anyone, so I didn't speak to anyone all day. I realize when I'm doing this but its kinda hard to make myself be social sometimes. Does this happen to anyone else this severe? How can I get help for this I really don't want to be alone anymore

  • You're an introvert, that's all. Extroversion is when a person gets energy from being around people, and feels drained after being alone for too long. Introversion, by contrast, is when you feel energized by being alone, and drained by being around people. I'm a strong introvert myself. I like being around people, sometimes quite a lot. But I have to take it in small doses, or I will just be exhausted. Sometimes working 40 hours a week can really take a toll on me because being around people all the time is so exhausting. I'd much rather enjoy being in my peaceful home with my animals. It's not a disorder, just the way you are. If you don't want to be alone, consider reaching out to meet other introverted people.

  • Same here, its too exhausting to talk to people, and i find it annoying when they dont understand me, so i spend most of my time be myself reading or playing games, and when i find the need for human contact i'll spend a little time with the family or talk to people in chat rooms online.

  • Unless you kill animals, you're not anti-social. The more proper word is "asocial".
