I'm finding myself to be a bit of a loner because I still see others as "worldly" and me as... well, not. I know that's a mindset I need to shake. But for now, it prevents me from initiating or responding to situations where a freindship could potentially develop.
My co-workers are nice enough guys just for working with, but most of them are really foul and filthy scum bags. Nobody talks at the gym. I don't hit the bars anymore (I'm also a recovering alcoholic - 9 years now). My neighbors are all a bunch of drunks or whackos or fellow loners - I wish that was an exaggeration.
Another BIG ingredient is I feel wasted from the whole experience of leaving the organization. Exhausted. I don't have the energy right now to invest in new friendships. Maybe that's a little bit of depression at play, I don't know. I think for right now I'm okay with just coasting. I know how to make things happen and create social situations. When I get bored enough, I'll act.
