curious and curiouser

I've always been curious to as why I quite enjoy spending time on my own, well until I get bored and feel like actually having a proper conversation.

I could spend a whole weekend completely on my own and be completely at ease, as a person I need quite a lot of alone time but I've never really wondered why.  I realised last week though that the reason I need quite a lot of alone time is because of my anxiety.  I'm more anxious round about people even if these people are my friends.  I feel more relaxed on my own since I don't need to worry about what I say etc.  Except from on Sunday's I'm always a lot more anxious on a Sunday than any other day, don't know why, I hate being on my own on a Sunday.

"'Regular' social anxiety is known to all of us as an uncomfortable feeling of nervousness. Many people have particular worries about social situations like public speaking or talking to authority figures, or experience more general feelings of shyness or a lack of confidence.

For some, however, these social anxieties and fears can become much more troubling and difficult to cope with. Everyday tasks which most people take for granted - such as working, socialising, shopping, speaking on the telephone, even just going out of the house - might be a wearing ordeal marked by persistent feelings of anxiety and self-consciousness."  (Social Anxiety UK)
