I need an emotional and/or spiritual connection to “click” with others. Otherwise, my interactions are forced. A forced interaction leaves me feeling drained and superficial, two feelings which I prefer to avoid.
Most people—particularly women—don’t understand this. They automatically develop this preconceived notion about me; I must be “stuck up” or hiding some incredibly juicy secret because I prefer not to engage in gossip and frivolous encounters.
May I be a lone wolf in peace? May I bask in the solitude that I have become so comfortable in? May I indulge in my introverted ways without being labeled “weird?”
The superficiality of this world as me at odds with this era. I constantly feel as if I do not belong here.
This place is not welcoming for a soul like my own.
