Cause Prefer To Be Alone?
Hello doctor. I want to ask, I often get together with friends, sometimes I get bored. Like I’m not satisfied, even though I am happy .. r n r nWell, when I am alone, I feel satisfied and can think a little about many things or pour it all out in my own mind. For example a night by a river, or near a forest and sea like that .. r n r nAre I having a mental breakdown or what? R n r nThank you
Hi Alvi, Thank you for the question.
If you prefer to be alone it may be because your personality is an introvert. This personality type is a normal personality. People with introverted personalities are more comfortable alone than with friends / social circles because they can be more productive and think about what's on their mind. However, there are also some solitary personality disorders, namely:
schizoid; people with this disorder tend not to want to have close relationships with other people, including family; sufferers also have limited emotions, do not care about criticism or praise from others schizotypal; the sufferer has strange behavior, unearthly ways of speaking, and other ways of thinking, especially in interpreting an avoidant personality disorder event; sufferers will avoid things that can invite criticism, are afraid to speak, and feel that they are not wanted in a social environment. It is natural for someone to want to be alone at one time. However, you also need to be careful if this is done to avoid social interactions with other people. If you feel that you are bothered by social interactions and want to avoid them, you may have a personality disorder or depression. Please consult a psychologist or psychiatrist for further examination and treatment.
Hope this information is helpful.
