So what is it about people that they need to be in a group and do things "together-gether". Is it the fear of being labelled as an outcast or unwanted or even unpopular? Ever since we were a kid, even back in the days of being in a school the need to belong is so strong. Doesn't matter if you are in the group of weirdos or uncool kids, you are alright as long as you are in a group.
I never had much trouble being in a group or whatever till high school that I found that people are more into their cliques than ever and when I lost mine (they are all older and graduated earlier)I can remember feeling rather lost as well. As though my support system has gone and I have no where to stand. It feels almost like an leper. Don't get me wrong, I know people and I talk to them but I guess somehow I was never close to anymore. But that's fine with me cause I am never the type that hangs out with anyone or do anything after school other than rushing back to sleep (cause the night before I would sleep really late) or spend my afternoons in Bukit Bintang roaming the malls, yes my love for fashion started really young.
So going back to present day, I can't seem to share the sentiment or rather the fear of watching a movie or having a meal by myself. It seems very natural to me. After all, we all came into the world alone, and likely or not leave it alone as well, so what's the big deal with doing things by yourself? I find it actually better to do certain things like shopping by myself. On my own time, terms and mood. Though I have to confess ir's not too bad doing it or anything else for that matter with another person - usually burns more time. So it's a matter of if I want to get things done quick and clean, it would be by myself.
But a person would reach a certain age and time when the group becomes smaller (sorry, I don't believe gaylebrity with millions of friends, those are not really friends)and you become more alone. It will be something learn, to live and be alone. I can't wait to learn it bit by bit. And this Sept, I will learn to travel alone. This will be interesting.
