    Why do I feel so sad and seclude myself?

    Where to start?
    I've always been an introvert, a perfectionist, someone who wants to succeed no matter what. But I just can't seem to, no matter how hard I try. Since perhaps high school, I've just had an overwhelming feeling of sadness. Which is odd as most people describe me as a happy, smiley girl, who loves to make you laugh. I wish I could make myself laugh. When I feel really miserable, I treat it like a cold. I seclude myself and just wait it out. It's horrible, I hate it. Like now. I've cut myself off from everyone AGAIN, because I just can't face them. I don't even want to go outside. But I've been like this ever since I can remember, so I often wonder if it's just the way I'm supposed to be?? I've never discussed this with anyone, as I've always felt my problems are my own. Surely after 20+ years I'd know how to fix a problem?!
