Felt like writing something about myself, before preping my trip.

I just know what kind of person they are.

There is only so much I want to contribute. I like to listen. I enjoy being by myself most of the time. Maybe if people actually listened to what I say.

Meh, who cares. I'm tired of trying to sway the conversation to better fit the other person, it's too much work, and I'm just lying to myself. If people really wanted to talk to me, they would understand that they have to ask the right questions, or I'm just going to flat out destroy you, because if anyone really knew me, I can be a good person to everyone, but I just don't care.

You know how difficult that is to manage? Only when people show me persistence and acceptance will I ever respect you. If you don't like my words, tough shit, to see past this ferocity, loyalty you will find.

You know ever since I started avoiding people, how much stronger I have become. You know how easy it is for me to become your friend? Its disgusting how easy people are. It's not manipulation, it is the pure stupidity of people for believing that I would ever manipulate people . Everything I say I try to help others, try to show people how much I would try to respect what you have created for yourself.

It is the other side you don't like, my true side. If it weren't for this side, I would be nothing, I would have created nothing, I would be an empty shell of a man. The only way I can achieve something is avoid others, because being attached will defeat my will. Instead I am a voice that grows stronger within my own mind.

If you cannot understand this; do not desire. I understand what person I am, and I choose not to hurt people anymore. Maybe one day I can find someone that understands, but I would much rather them find me. Life is so much simpler when you start living true to yourself. Maybe this trip I can find out what I am missing from my life, reconnect with nature.

I am an expert at avoiding people. Though honestly, I can use it to my advantage. When I was younger, I was just awkward and never talked to anyone. Not because I was shy, but because the people I seemed to be around didn't have much worth talking about. Or so I thought back then. As I've gotten older I've realized that interaction is necessary, and sometimes quite nice. But there are always going to be those people not worth your time. Figure out who they are. Acknowledge them enough so they don't realize you're actually avoiding them. Don't engage when not necessary. It saves a lot of headaches, especially at work.

Avoidance is not a bad thing when it lends itself to self preservation. But don't confuse self preservation with introverted tendencies. Interaction is necessary and many in your life will need you as you need them, just at different levels.

I do it, people I find annoying or irritating but have no choice but to see them I avoid as much as I can. So obviously I don't care about it, there's just some people in this world you can't connect with even if you try.

Some of them are jerks, some are genuine.

Sometimes I distance myself from others, especially if i'm socially exhausted, being an introvert and all. Some people just don't want to own up to their mistakes or face problems in front of them, so just ignore others.

I avoid people on a regular basis. People always want to stop me and start a conversation with me, so I usually have headphones or earbuds in when i'm out by myself, or make sure someone is on the phone with me, particularly someone who loves to listen to themselves talk, so I don't have to listen to every word, that way I'll be too busy for someone to stop me.

Same goes for elevators.

Maybe I should just wear a sign that says: DO NOT TALK TO ME.

Im not the typical party type so i avoid crowds but as long as it is in smaller groups im ok with it.
I never liked to go to the Discothek cause it was too crowded you cant understand what people are saying cause its too loud from music and people having conversations all at same time.

I'm pretty much a loner. If it's necessary for school I'll join in but don't search out companionship. Never bothered me.

I try to avoid people I know before college. It's super weird to have to say:

"oh I no longer talk to so and so" -- that's code word for, "I don't speak to that asshole anymore"

I avoid people that I don't feel like talking to.
