I feel like I have a moral duty to prefer to be alone and stay out of peoples' ways, and that it's inappropriate for me to want anything else.

A lot of my social anxiety is really ambivalence because I feel like it's a moral failing that I want to interact with people.

It turns out that I never really got over being told constantly to shut up and stay out of the way while actual people (adults) were doing important things, which was always. I don't know that I'm really as introverted or fearful as I act, I just don't have any other habits and I'm only recently coming to understand that it feels more like an imperative than anxiety.
