anyone here not socially anxious?

#1
I don't have social anxiety, a little shyness is all. I am here more for misanthropy. To put it nicely, I give a thumbs down to how many of us there are on this planet, hence my name. if you are also a non-sa member, please share and maybe we can be buddies :cool:

I think that misanthropy is one of the things I'm extremely wary of. Although we can all feel a little embittered at time (myself included), I can't really understand how anyone can lack compassion.. basic empathy.. and just blindly hate humanity. I don't really understand hate.

I love humanity, I just don't feel like I'm good enough to be a part of it. Humanity isn't perfect, but I know others can be capable of profound acts of kindness. It's easy to find the negatives in people, and it's easy to assume that someone doesn't care, or is simply 'bad', but you genuinely don't know what they've been through, or what they're going through.

it grows, gets deeper every time I appear in the public. misanthropy isn't something you acquire in a weeks-amount of time. it takes awhile, and then the misanthrope knows that he/she was not meant to just resist the bad in people. I understand and respect your response, for I know most people don't have a problem with the public and how people are. but I can assure you, it is difficult for me to just oversee the filth, and how many there are. and so, I fall into the category of "misanthrope", just as people who have difficulty with public speaking fall into the category of "socially anxious". being misanthropic, I would obviously say that it is right, but I know it isn't for everyone. ;)

i think you can cure misanthropy with a silver bullet...
i'm no stranger to suicide. Reason why I haven't killed myself is because I would hurt my family and I do have friends. One friend told me in school that if I were to end my life, he would be angry and hurt, so I have refrained from leaving.. If I was on my own and had no one, there would be no reason for me to remain here.

I don't think he was suggesting you commit suicide. I think he was intentionally making a play on 'lycanthropy'. Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know.

I'm glad you have no intention to commit suicide.

Aren't there forums where people who hate people can get together with other people who hate people? I think a site for social phobias and anxiety problems is a poor decision, as many people here are embittered because of their problems rather than feeling that way as a rule or a conscious choice, and probably even want to go be around people more or at least drop the fear of it and be reclusive by choice.

I went through this when I was around 18-19 but then sort of got out of it. I can understand why you would feel this way, though.

I wished there was, but there really isn't any. the only one I found isn't very active -.-

I consider myself a misanthropic philanthropist... Or perhaps a philanthropic misanthropist... I hate people, but I also care about them a lot... Of course, the reasons I hate people are all due to the suffering and damage they cause, so it all makes perfect sense...

However, if you don't have SP or severe shyness, I agree that another forum dedicated to misanthropy might be a better place for you. There must be one in existence somewhere... Although, if you hate people so much, doesn't it seem a little counter-intuitive to want to interact with them on a forum? lol

no, because I am actually much like yourself. I suppose I might have left out philanthropy because I do care for people. I talk well with people. I hate for mainly the same reasons as you. but I understand that my presence here is probably useless.. and yet again, can't delete my profile -.- if anyone would care to do me the favor and ban my account, that would be good.
