"When nearly all you do is done alone, it makes the effort that is conversation that much harder, and all the more fruitless"
- Anneli Rufus (Party of One: The Loner's Manifesto)
I'm currently reading Anneli Rufus' book entitled The Loner's Manifesto. It probably contradicts what I've recently been trying to do, which is to become more social and reach out. But as the book confirms, that does not necessarily mean that I avoid all social contacts.
Previously, before I decided to do more social stuff, I've always considered myself a loner. Infact, perhaps I still do, and maybe that's why I'm reading this book. I figure maybe I'll know for sure whether it fits me or not.
But as it is, I still don't know. It's possible that I am one. I haven't really decided if all this social stuff makes me any happier. I don't know if it makes my life suddenly worth living. I do know, to a certain extent, that I am doing all this social stuff because V wants me to. And it could be a way for me to prove to her that it doesn't work. Unless it does. In which case it would prove me wrong.
The book is certainly interesting.
I'll share more thoughts on this if I encounter anything else.
