If a loner and ex-introvert may suggest something, search on "Children Learn What They Live" by Dorothy Law Nolte.

Her line "When children live with ridicule, they learn to be shy" spoke to me.

Ms. Nolte omitted and I added the line "When children live with violence, they learn to be fearful."

I'm not specifically a loner really but I don't need to hang around a-holes just to have friends. Currently, I'm on my own little island bc of all the religious ppl in my situation. Everyone I know believes in JC. They thank him for everything including my new job. I want to say FU to all of them. It's crazy that grown ass ppl need to believe in superstition. I know I'm not the only one but no one near me to cuss & discuss day to day crap with.

Welcome, all you new members.

I can relate to that somewhat, I rise at 5:30 and collapse at about 21:30 to 22:00 hours. It leaves me a hour to surf on my iPad or read. That's day in and day out until I retire in a couple of years, but till then, I'll be living the 60's all over again!

Hello old man Herman.  My bedtime is 7 PM MST, so I can get up at 2 AM to start working in my garden.  Some winters I keep the same schedule because it's easier than changing sleep hours twice a year, but some winters, like this one, I go to bed at 11 PM.

Comment by Gale Herman on January 21, 2015 at 10:23pm
Oh, by the way, if I don't respond immediately to anyone's comments tonight, it's only because I reside in a time zone where it's now time for an old man to go to bed.

Thanks, Steph, it's a pleasure to be alone and introverted with all of you; I believe I'll enjoy being a member. (I hope I've met the height requirement.)

Hello to all.
Comment by Idaho Spud on July 11, 2014 at 4:38pm

I was surprised to see my state is relatively loose.  I know mormonism is not tolerant of difference, but it doesn't act on it's intolerant dogma like it used to.  However, I still think it would act on it's intolerance if it were to gain power.
