Wanting to be alone; not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to be alone. I've been alone for years, it gives me a LOT more time to be creative and give me space to move forwards.

I don't think this is a bad point about you, being confident in what you want to say even if it is self-centred is in fact a good thing.You are being honest with yourself by being able to just say "No I'm not doing what you want me to do". It's a trait I wish I had.

I understand your situation as it is very similar to mine. Still enjoying everyone's company but wanting a change; It wasn't necessarily alone time that I wanted I just wanted to do something different in contrast to going out and doing really nothing every single day. It's sad that our friends can't accept our feelings and when we say we want to do something different; it would be nice to have them say "okay" instead of insisting we continue to do this never ending cycle of nothing.
As I said before, doing less of something makes you enjoy it more, doing the same thing all the time eventually loses it's specialness.

I feel like this is also a problem for me in the fact that I cannot and will not do anything by myself, if I'm going to do anything chances are I have my best friend next to me. I wish I was able to enjoy things alone like you but I don't know what it is that pushes me back, maybe anxiety.

It's always better to be considerate of others' feelings, I think. Because one is less likely to lead a lonely life when one cares more about others.


I'm trying to change myself and become more empathetic. I suppose this is a "the grass is greener on the other side" situation.

Sounds like a very sucky group of friends... they manipulated you into going out when you didn't want to, then complained when you weren't talking/interacting?

Screw them.

Were these guys manipulating you into taking marijuana? isn't marijuana use illegal in england... personally, I'd stay away from anyone engaging in any illegal activities. And most certainly don't let anyone pressure you into doing you feel uncomfortable doing.

First, that one chick seems like a real bitch, and I hope you chewed her out - secondly, hangin out with a bunch of stoners all day is bound to get boring, and thirdly - telling your friends you need to 'recharge' one night, or something along those lines, is perfectly fine.

If you hang out and act all reclusive, it just sends the wrong messages.

No one's forcing you to do anything.

I have this feeling when I am in sad mood. I don't really want to make anyone around me feel my pain and it is also really hard to fake that everything is okay. All of them already have their problems and adding my on top will make them overwhelmed. Sometimes its easier to be lonely because you don't want to talk about what is happening to you. It happens to me as well :|

Boring stoner friends, I've been there. It sucks and I'm a bit of an introvert myself so I enjoy the time a take to be alone, to relax and recharge. Nothing wrong with smoking the bud either but it's more enjoyable when you're alone that's for sure, you can relax and just watch a movie, listen to music, or sleep and enjoy the hi without worrying about having to "entertain" anyone but yourself. Also awesome when you have a girlfriend who smokes too!
