I've decided in recent years I just don't like people. I feel that they are a primitive species. They are dishonest, untrustworthy, fake, mean. Even the so-called good ones are like this. I've come to this conclusion after years of observation of the human race. Because of that, I like to be alone. I don't want to date, or have friends. I don't even really like my family that much. I tolerate my parents because they are my parents. But honestly if they weren't my parents, I probably would not even like them much either.
I can handle people one step removed by watching TV or hearing music. Don't get me wrong, I think some people are very talented. I enjoy the things that some of them create. Just not good people to be around. Everyone thinks I am depressed, but I think it's just a lifestyle choice. My dad thinks I should be more tolerant and forgiving, but... why should I? Why should I lower my standards? It doesn't make me happy. I'm sad that I am so alone, but I will just have to deal with being born into this primitve species until I die. Is this wrong? I told my parents a little about this and I said I cannot change how I feel. I feel what I feel.
And btw don't tell me to just do activities to meet people. I am not going to do activities just to keep myself busy. There's no point. I'm not interested in doing some fake activities as an excuse to meet people that I don't even want to meet. I did that when I was younger and I am over that. I am very good at keeping myself entertained, so I don't need to do that.
