Do you need people?


#21

I don’t need people physically, but I need at least an online presence. That seems to be good enough for me.


#22

Yes! They keep me grounded. I talk to my mom and grandparents when I’m having a rough time. I don’t burden my brothers with it, they are a bit on the young side. The older one I did have a conversation with about it about a year ago. Just so he knows I would never crack and act out like the stereotype might suggest.


#23

Yes. Join a club or something to bring you into contact with people. If it doesn’t work out go back to what your doing. If it works out…you’ve gained.

I’ve gained a lot from participation with friends, family and a sporting club!


#24

I don’t need a lot of company, but I do need at least some. If you’re alone too much you can grow eccentric and lose the normal everyday manners and expectations we all are supposed to have.
