Lately I have found it difficult to be in any sort of relationships with people. Either they end up getting hurt or I do. By contrast, being alone seems much easier, even despite the loneliness factor. The problem is that I suppose anything can be taken to an extreme, and recently I have been pushing away even people I have known for a long time. It is even difficult for me to post on this forum. I think this approach could definitely be type-related and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
