Full Version: Independence and loneliness...

To be alone in it's own way is a form of independence from the the rest of the world. If only to a minor extent. Like George Orwell wrote about Winston in the great, 1984, the only place to truly be free in some cases is the few cubic centimeters of space between your ears.

However this does come at a cost, as Nietzsche put it "To be Independent is the business of a few only; it is the privilege of the strong." But only the absolute strongest of us can deal with complete isolation, shut ins, hermits, and the like. Admirable but not completely practical in my case. As Aristotle put it "To live alone one must be an animal or a God."

So that I guess, brings me here. In my severing of the rest of the world I still have that need, whether genetically predisposed from our herd-like human behavior (Don't knock it, it has kept us living all these millenia) or ingrained into me from being born into a civilized society, to deal with other people.

It's not a wretched business, I generally like helping people and all that. I do however find it difficult to communicate and find people I can get along with. Being introverted and having lone wolf tendencies really hasn't helped my case in social circumstances. I do however, like being alone for the most part.

So yeah, to stop rambling, I just want to meet a few tolerable people. I may as well make it those who are supposedly of my own kind. Greetings all of you, you seem to have a nice place here.
