Default Hermit Crab

I be a hermit crab, very rarely do you see this dude come out of his shell. The only thing I do sit in my room and chill on my MySpace page or play games, and sometimes watch TV. It has plenty of music. I wanna go out and chill with my homeys, but I'm kinda scared to go where they want to go . . . because of other people that'll be around us.

Woke up two days ago, with my uncle and grandpa, went fishing,
But still, even the desire to stay chillin when I'm having fun is an impossible mission,
Because of those damn visions of wishing I stayed home, I hate the park,
Cross my heart, I rather come during a thunderstorm while it's dark,
Well, now I'm gettin used to it, but still I consider my life is bad,
Forever. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . I be a hermit crab . . .
And I'll never come out of this shell . .


Now let me ask a question and I want answers from a variety of people. Do you go out with friends and have a good time? If so, what does it take to do that and enjoy it?

I go out with friends and have a good time... not always.. sometimes I'm bored, and other times, I just can't stop worrying about what they think of me... Parties are hard for me... especially when I'm depressed.. I become kind of a wallflower some times, and wish I was home...
But other times I have a lot of fun.

But let me ask this... Why are you afraid? What do you think might happen? What goes through your mind that makes you feel more comfortable at home?

That's good to hear that you enjoy yourself most of the time. To answer your question, I usually worry about how other people (that I'm not with) will react towards me. Usually, a random person would fuck with me and put me in a situation whether I have to fight or just leave it alone. I hate being in that situation and it stays with me for a long time, and I personally can't handle it. It goes away time after time. I don't like being mugged (mostly by gurlz). (Not mugged as in getting robbed on the street. Where I come from, 'mugged' means when someone gives you a mean look or disrespect you in a small way.) And the reason why I feel safer at home is because that none of that would happen in my room.

so you are worrying about what strangers wil think of you? Bc they often mess with you and try to get you to fight?
Where is this happening?
And you don't feel comfortable with girls while you are out bc they mug you?
Are you trying to find out if your isolating desires/behaviors are normal? Is that why you are asking?
Can you tell us more about what is going on and/or what you think or how you feel about this?
I'm trying to understand what you are looking for, really...
I know how to listen.. but don't necessarily know how to answer these questions bc they are going to be so very different - the "whys" - for everyone...

For me, it totally depends on how I am feeling.. When I am depressed, I often don't want to do anything.. I feel down about myself in every way... and alone, and don't want to see anyone...
other times I cannot stop thinking/obessing about if so-and-so is angry and so forth.. which gets me really down... the negative expectatons... and can ruin my night, even if it is a fun time...
and other times, I am high emotionally/brain chemically.. and feel very confident and hyer and silly - although after a while of being weird like that, I crash and start to worry when I realize that I am being "weird" and worry that everyone thinks I am "too weird" too... and that snowballs on into more anxiety/depression...
but that's just me...
No idea if this helps at all... doesn't sound like your story a lot... except maybe kinda some of the anxiety is causing you to want to stay home and avoid situations???
Keep talking, ok? We're here to listen...

It's just that, whenever I'm around people, I feel weird. So weird until I don't feel like doing shit anymore. But what does it take to ignore all that and enjoy yourself anyway?

for me i have to trust the people i hang out with. i i think they could be trouble i hang out with some one else but with in seeing distance of the other person so that i can figure out if its safe for me or not. then i give the person a try.
