I am not sure if a similar thread to this has been made, so if it has, I would be glad if it was merged by a moderator.
This is not really a conventional thread but a chain of reflective thoughts. I am not sure if lonely people somehow become more intelligent due to spending more time exploring the deepest places inside their own minds, or it's the other way around: intelligent people become lonely because there are few people who understand them. As for me, I feel misunderstood. I have social interaction but it's only superficial. I don't get along most people. Seeing any conventional social site like facebook depresses me, I see way too much shallowness, memes, people publishing things about their own personal life which they should not be even posting, crappy music, getting all happy when their football team wins. None of that is of interest to me.
I've come to the conclusion loneliness is an unavoidable price to pay when you have deep seet thoughts. However sometimes I'm deeply sickened by my own mental labyrinth and its dead ends.
Is there a way to find a balance? I feel my mind is a prison. I feel my life would be easier and happier if my IQ was just 2 digits.
