    It's a feeling hard to explain, but even when you're alone it feels the same.

    has anyone else ever had that feeling?

    beyond the capacity for words to properly explain.

    I used to feel that way in college. I had low self-esteem and probably had low-grade depression at the time. I don't feel like that anymore. Thank God. icon_biggrin.gif

    All the time. I've stopped apologizing for it. I have no desire to be an extrovert, takes too much energy.

    Not too often but there definitely are those moments.

    Especially if I've gotten into some trouble or embarrassed myself to friends or family. I become desolated and run away to a little island in my mind and shut everything out, even from people/things that I enjoy. icon_neutral.gif

    Ahhh! The perpetual tug between the need for the sense of self-identity, and the desire to blend in and belong to something bigger.

    It's hell, ain't it? hahahaha!

    Or, in the words of Jean Paul Sartre, "Hell is other people."

    I can feel completely content by myself or in a crowd.
    I can also feel completely alone by myself or in a crowd.
    It depends upon my attitude.
    An "attitude of gratitude" usually keeps me happy.

    Alone In The Crowd

    I dunno. I'm always my own best company, never alone. I can entertain myself in any situation.

    Yet I always seem to meet people. I smile, treat them in a warn & friendly manner, and suddenly I'm hearing their life story.

    It's really very easy. If you genuinely LIKE people, they will like you. Well, most of them will. And the rest you can afford to ignore.

    I've never known another feeling than alone, it's not a bad thing, I've grown used to it. It's a peaceful reminder of a solitary life that I'll always have.

    I've always been a loner. I have my friends and I have my family, but I've always been more comfortable flying solo. Not that I don't like being out around people, but I like to stand back and observe more than I enjoy being engaged and social.
    Yes, hard to explain. Only people like us really get it.

    Similar feelings here.Always tended to enjoy my own company;watch rather than take part.I have become more social as I get older,but it`s always there.
    The bigger the crowd,the more intense the feeling.Big cities and crowds/activity provoke this feeling the most.

    Yes, it is a horrible feeling. I would much rather be alone than to be alone in a crowd.

    LVmotoJock hit the head on the nail.

    It's hard to explain but only people like us will truly understand this feeling.

    I like these words of wisdom and I heartily agree. While I don't always meet new people, it seems to come pretty easy for me. Its really about being interested in other people and not being too shy.
