People think being anti-social means you are a lonely person Wrong. Being anti-social can mean your options of people to hang out with are limited, and you feel more comfortable being by yourself anyway. Being anti-social doesn't mean you are lonely You may prefer to be alone, because you can be yourself There's no judgment, no pressure Just because you have a large crowd of friends around you all the time, doesn't mean you are happy or that they are happy
The term "social media" is kind of ironic. The amount of time people spend on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, can actually make you become obsessed with it, and obsessed with yourself. If you stay inside all the time, using those sites, and are not actually hanging around people, it can make you less social. No matter how many people you may be interacting with online, its not like they are right there, talking to you, understanding how you really feel. And with online friends, they may not be real friends. You never know if they are going to keep talking to you. So in a way, social media is addictive enough to make people become anti-social....I would rather not talk to people, then talk to completely fake people, who don't care

I'm done. I'm just so done. I'm done with giving up on myself. I'm done with being content with lunches alone in the library pretending to study. I'm done wallowing away in self-pity. I'm done not caring about grades or where my life is going. I'm done just barely getting by. I am going to put myself back out there. I am going to make friends again. I am going to succeed. I am going to be happy. Things are going to change, and they are going to change now.

I don't get how some people can stay away from home (staying in the same city) for like 2 weeks and actually socialize the whole time. Like seriously, I can't even bear staying away from home for 8 hours because of school.
