I’m fairly certain I’m one of the most socially inept people out there.
I love people. I love talking to people, being around them, listening to stories, learning about them.
Every single person I’ve met has such an amazingly beautiful story and I just love hearing them all. I want to hear more all the time.
But I am so afraid that people will become bored of me or annoyed and so to avoid getting hurt by this, I tend to stay distant, I allow time to pass between social interactions to give the appearance of me being busy (when in reality I’m never truly too busy to go more than 24 hours without replying) so I can protect myself.
But then they don’t think I’m interested.
I am too afraid of being hurt that I resort to this old habit which ultimately leaves me alone anyway.
I am so uncomfortable right now.
