Would you want to live your life in complete isolation with 0 physical contact? Why or why not?

As someone who hates socializing, HELL NO. I'd go crazy, man. Even people like me who have a hard time socializing need to be with other people from time to time.


illy-chan

Yeah, I'm a total introvert but *complete* isolation just isn't natural. If I recall, people can actually develop psychological conditions from prolonged solitude.


VoodooManny02

Want to? Not really? Do I, though? Yeah.

My company switched to a permanent work from home environment and it was then that I realized that going to the office was where I got a solid chunk of my human interaction. With that since removed my social anxieties have gotten worse. If not for my wife and daughter I likely would have killed myself during the 2020 / 2021.


kingofcrob

i really question how long these business can do work form home till the cons starts out weighing the pros.


Therearenogoodnames9

What I would like to see is the companies offer more teledoc psychiatric options. The most difficult treatment to find since the Pandemic started seems to be a therapist as most in my area are not taking new patients, don't call me back, or don't take my insurance.


kingofcrob

eh, work provides access to psychiatric care because i have to deal with a lot graphic imagery... but I've never used that, frankly what I want is simple, to have clear career path, what a lot of that can be done by done a few zoom meetings.... and for my country to open the international borders so i can take a holiday.


Therearenogoodnames9

Man, a clear career path would be awesome. My company uses these pay band codes that seem to change every other year. It's to the point where I can't tell what is a promotion, lateral, or demotion anymore.

I think OP is an actual toxic incel who has been told that he's not entitled to other people and that his reliance on others for his mental well-being is toxic. Instead of thinking about how he was acting entitled and how his behavior was toxic, he started this thread to say those things to everyone, somehow thinking that would show people how wrong his criticizers are.


eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoso

Im not entitled but people like to use that word


F_Klyka

Aaaand there it is


PancakesAreMyJam

Since the pandemic hit I’ve been isolated, only seen friends once or twice. (Obviously still go out and stuff, just never been back to my school or anything.) Definite no. It’s so nice not having to go places, or deal with people, but it can be crushing at times when you wanna hangout with people. Online gaming and stuff really helps, but doesn’t make up for seeing friends in person in some ways.


those_fucking_ducks

Honestly, yes because I hate socializing


fuitsu

no,pandemic is already hard enough


hellofellownpcs

No, because I'm a normal human being.


LoneStarDawg

There was a time that I would've said yes to this. But then I got close...and realized it's not a solution. Gotta find the right circle of people to be around. Easier said than done


DoAFlip22

Fuck no, regardless of how antisocial you are, you need some sense of connection with other human beings. Even if it’s just a “hello,” it genuinely makes a difference.

How tf am I an incel? You’re not entitled to other people, but you still require it. If others won’t talk to you, that’s a different issue, but to remain mentally healthy you do need social contact.


Hentai-hercogs

he replies like that to all comments that say that they wouldn't like living like that


eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoso

If you rely on others for the sake of your own mental health that’s toxic


Smooth-Broccoli6799

I’m a loner always has been and always will be because I like it


Bribi1

That's close to what I do


Smooth_Talkin_Chron

Nope! I need a hug to get by most days

Smooth_Talkin_Chron

Sounds like you need a hug


eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoso

To rely on anyone but yourself for your own happiness is toxic


PhillipLlerenas

No, because this is used as literal torture. Human beings are social by our biology. We can't live in complete isolation and be healthy.


condemned02

Um no, I love sex.


kingofcrob

fuck no, been doing that fore the last 3 months... the Australian governments needs to get these fucken vaccination out there.


GeminiS2222

A lot of men have to do exactly that nowadays. We could have friends of course, but that is even worse than isolating yourself, in my experience.


Hentai-hercogs

Not a snowballs chance in hell and I'm a bloody introvert

Hentai-hercogs

Pardon?


eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoso

If you aren’t happy with yourself that’s toxic behaviour to rely on others for your happiness


Hentai-hercogs

I'm perfectly happy to be alone. But theres a limit, and lockdown was a perfect example of that


eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoso

Sorry unless you can handle complete eternal isolation that’s toxic


ScumoForPrison

you described nearly every gamer ever

keithwaits

No and I dont believe anybody that says yes. Complete isolation means no contact with others what so ever right?
