Our expert says:
Some of us enhoy company, others don't. Some are maybe a bit excessively needy of crowds and parties and uneasy on their own ; some are happy on their own and uncomfortable in company. If you enjoy the group situations you now get yourself into, that's presumably fine.
There's mo particular advantage, though, in forcing yourself to be more sociable than you need to or feel comfortable with. That you feel usually comforable alone is fine, normal and healthy. That this sometimes distresses you may be worth exploring in counselling with a proper therapist.
Do you "desire to connect with other people" because you genuinely want to and enjoy doing so, or because you feel you ought to do so, and that not to do so is somehow abonormal or undwesirable ? Whwen you feel lonely - what is it you are desiring ? A group ? One close companion ? A friend to occasionally spend time with ?
