After spending some time with my family, I realize I'm too different from most people and that that's why I feel so judged and condemned. So I'll be a loner. Thoughts?

Certainly you can give yourself license to retreat and be a loner for periods of time when you need -- or simply want -- to. No law says you have to be consistently the same thing as before. Sometimes people can get to be too much.

Thanks, I'll be a loner. I'm so grateful that someone responded to one of my postings.

I'm thinking of dropping the hedonism (pleasure seeking) side of my personality. My uncle told me to put leisure on hold and work hard to get my own place, get a job, go to the gym, get responsibilities.

What do you all think?

A counselor and friends said to continue with the 80% loner, 20% hedonism. They said to stop caring so much what people i.e. my family think. They said there are different roads to success.

It really depends on you. I feel like a loner. I want to change that. But things don't seem to go in my favor.

Thanks for your input. What are you doing to change that?

i feel like when I'm around people. I try to be someone i think i should be.
When I'm by myself I'm a kid.
I feel like i cant stay true to myself because i lie to everyone about who i am when we i out the door. I am not who they think i am. I'm just a kid. that does stupid shit,
but now I'm a kid that did and still does stupid things and tries to learn. Because he knows he doesn't have all the answers.

Now I'm starting to feel like who i am alone is who i am around others.

ABSOLUTELY no good comes from staying home ALL DAY

I think there could be some good that comes from staying home all day. I used to enjoy it. I wish I could still do it, only I have to support myself. But it gave me a ton of inner peace.

You don't need to think about the fact whether you should be a loner or outgoing.
The best version of yourself is your natural-self.
What makes you more comfortable is what you should do. No need to do things forcefully for the sake of people or to impress anyone.

Engage yourself in activities which you like doing. Do what you love and gain satisfaction from that. That boosts up yourself self-esteem by leaps and bounds.

So, don't ponder upon whether you should be like this or like that. But also, make sure that nothing is on extreme, you should also be a balanced and lively person from within.

Hope that made sense. :)
