is like claiming food is unnecessary because those who do not work out generally need less food than those who work out all the time.
When I went back home a few weeks back, this random fat kid that was in my year in HS was moaning at me because apparently I ate more than him yet I wasn't fat.
I don't think he realised I would spend 20-30 hours a week training for rugby. Most of what I ate wasn't ****, mostly meats high in protein and lots of complex-carbs like pasta. Hell I ate porridge every morning just because it is healthy and high in energy, not that I liked it that much when I was having it every day. --- vBlite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw5x_bc9Lvo&feature=plcp
im sorry if i hate people. i barely tolerate my family most nights. i love my kids and wife and thats the only people i enjoy being around. the rest of my family i could care less about. backstabbing, gossiping...not my idea of a good time.
if i could i would live alone and never have to leave my house. im sure socializing is healthy but its a nessecity to live. people in general are just useless and annoying. thats why i enjoy XBL. i can play with some people and talk for a little while, but if they piss me off i can just sign out and not deal with it. IRL people will not leave you alone and spread lies about you
...that's a rather bitter way to look at things.
im not a very "happy" person. part of it is a disease and part of it is just history with other people. i havent enjoyed people since i was in school. mainers are just rude and annoying.
Ah. I see.
I used to be quite negative, but people have been around me to support me while I'm dealing with my disease. Being bed-ridden and being depressed/alone is not a good combo. --- Royale with Cheese. What do they call a Big Mac? Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it Le Big Mac.
On a personal level though......that's a load of horses***.
No. There are detrimental health effects to not socializing.
Elaborate, with proof. I'm sure there's a reasonable fraction of Introvert's who don't possess these health effects due to being non-social.
You are actually trying to argue that not socialising is healthy......
Whatever keeps you happy I guess.
No. My point being, that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being an introvert. Some people are just shy of being around others.
Hell, i knew quite a few people from my 4th year in College who never had relationships, hung out with others and participated the the Colleges Student Federation activities during downtime. They were outstanding/average in their academics and seemed to do what they liked alone......nothing wrong with that.
Granted that most of your life will be spent around people, there are lots of ways to go about it without being actively social: Pick up hobbies: Individual Sports, Literature, Movies etc.
Force someone to socialize and you may as well be imposing your own opinion on how they should live with others. --- --- "When I'm walking a dark road, I am a man who walks alone" - Iron Maiden
why do ppl assume that the choice is either one or the other, i both socialise and play halo. im just not one of those ppl that sit on the couch playing halo for 5hrs at a time.
this...the only time I really do sit on the couch playing Halo for 5 hours at a time are Sundays when all my friends are busy...usually my Saturday goes like this...I wake up, eat breakfast, play Xbox until around lunchtime, eat lunch, shower and get ready then go out --- not changing this sig until i feel like it - started 6.23.2009
