“No man is an island, Kate! Wake up! This is the reality! Come on, stop being insane!”
Someone talk to me that way, just like we’re even friends but absolutely we’re not. Hi! I’m Kate. Oh! let me rephrase that! Hi! I’m Kate Winslet Surigao, I’m from Muntinlupa. Unfortunately I do not even know if you have an interest to know my Pretty name. Yeah! You’re correct! Pretty name, as in PRETTY.
I can call myself as alone person. In fact I do not have best friends nor friends. Maybe I just wanted myself as being alone. Sounds weird right? I do not know what I am a type of a person, but for me it’s natural for some person like me.
Why do some people like to be alone?
Why would someone prefer to stay alone rather than being with other people?
Why would someone love to stay at home instead of hanging out and seeing other people?
I knew someone who used to travel all alone without taking anyone with him and who used to tell me that he enjoys traveling alone. For the first instance those people might appear as if they are in love with themselves or that they are not that interested in others while in fact they might be suffering from many psychological problems that could be preventing them from interacting with others!
In this article i will tell you why do some people like to be alone.
Because human beings are complex no single reason can explain a certain behavior but instead more than one person can be engaged in the same behavior for completely different reasons.
Below are some reasons that could explain why would some people like to be alone, note that more than one reason can be present together in some cases:
- Lack of social skills: Some people claim that they love to be alone because in fact they don’t know what to do in the company of others. That’s one of the popular Self deception methods the human mind uses. Its better for the person to claim and even believe that he/she likes to be alone rather than admit that he can’t communicate properly with others
- Lack of social interest: We humans can’t live on our own and we need each other to survive. Some people, who were mistreated by their caregivers, didn’t manage to develop social interest and as a result started to like to be on their own rather than being with others.
- Protective walls: Some people claim that they like to be alone because people are evil, not trustworthy or bad. Those people are usually the ones who suffered from poor past experiences and who didn’t manage to get rid of the bad memories.
- Introversion and mental health: Recent researches are starting to put introversion under the category of mental disorders. When you find yourself really happy don’t you feel like seeing your friends? on the other hand what do you feel like when you find yourself depressed? most probably you will want to stay in your room. Some people like to stay alone because they are introverts but introversion itself could be an indication that things are going the wrong way in your life.
I’m trying to know what is in me. In this searching I will know why do some people like to be alone like me. Maybe I am one of these cases why i like to be alone. 🙂
