Can anyone relate?
I can relate, but perhaps from the other side. I would say that human interacation has everything
to do with fairness, equality, justice, morality and more. Also that humans are capabale of an unfathomable amount of wickedness and malevolence. The reason I say the opposite to the first part, is that each of us has in us the choice in what we do in each decision, should it be something good or bad.
This is what our parents (carers etc) and society teach us. The way our minds work can dictate the decision, the moment in time also, and the our own reactions to interacting with people (known or strangers) in the street.
You are not alone in your fears. To survive we have to have the good faith in others to be higher than the fear of others, or we would all be socially awkward and die out as a species. What makes us remarkable together as a species makes us also unique in our grouping and isolations.
I don't know if I'm making sense or just rambling, you let me know... All I know is I cannot cope with people sometimes, other times I just go past everyone and ignore anything but the one goal I have to do outside, and other times I must stay in and not interact with anybody.
It's not all bad out there, we have a choice in how we go about it all.
