This sounds very like a similar message about loneliness posted yesterday, which I have just responded to. To the extent that one doesn't feel the need to be around people, that is a personal choice, and need not be a problem. To the extent that one really wants to be with people, but feels inhibited and uncomfortable when you do get into social situations, that may be a form of social anxiety disorder, which, fortunately, can respond very well to relatively brief therapy of the Cognitive-Behaviour Disorder form ( CBT ) and also some medications also used for depression, can help, as well.
best to see a good local shrink for assessment and a discussion of your treatment options.
You sound like a really nice person - if at times other people feel uneasy in your presence, it may well be that they sense YOUR unease and discomfort. So you describe pushing people away when they try to get near you, assuming that they don't want to know you - of course if they didn't want to know you, they wouldn't approach you in the first place - maybe you want to push them away before they push you away, falsely assuming that they would want to do so. CBT beckons !
