I hate to say it, but I think I’m becoming incredibly sick of being around people.
I know that’s a harsh statement to make, but before you label this post, and me, as being isolationist and a hermit, let me explain.
I’m sick of being around rude and stupid people – people with no common sense, or ego-centric sense – they call it entitlement also.
I remember when people were courteous, used things like “please” and “thank you”, and actually smiled once in a while. Their days were filled with optimism and often times, even a little bit of happiness, but now it seems that people are willing to wade through miles and miles of gloom and doom just to try and bring someone else’s day down – no matter if it’s their fault or not. It also makes me really not all that eager to go shopping, which I’ve covered in a previous post, so I won’t bore you to tears here about it.
Needless to say, when I go out, today I rarely ask for any help unless absolutely necessary (which isn’t often), and tend to just keep to myself and browse in silence. Sadly, I lack a portable music device, or I’d probably be drowning out the world and just living in my own for a while, so I am left to deal with how things are, and the people who seem to be around my immediate presence at that time.
Some people I still enjoy being around, and they know who they are, so they are not included in this frustration of mine. Outside of my family, I seem to have a very small circle of friends that I see outside of my workplace, so I do my best to keep in touch with them, because often times it’s the only intelligent conversation I get when I am awake.
