I avoid people.
Especially people I know.
I also avoid people I don’t know but that is not the focus of this blog.
If I see somebody I know, I have been known to duck into alleys, turn around and walk away, cross the street and on one occasion run screaming into oncoming traffic. That last one is a joke. See how funny I am?
Ahem, anyway, I do this and there is no good reason for doing so. I just do not want to meet up with people I once knew. Or currently know. This isn’t a blanket rule by the way, just a general rule.
I have always been like this, I think. When I work, I don’t socialize with my colleagues. Once I am out the door, that is it. I walk off with backwards looks. I made excuses not to attend Christmas parties, birthday parties, funerals etc. There are people at work who consider themselves my friends; they aren’t. It was the same with school, college, and university.
I am shunning human company I realise but it is not like I wish to be alone, I just do not want to spend my time with people who think they know me. Erm, yeah.
