You're feeling closed off from the world now, which means that all of your creativity, beauty, and intricacies are hidden from view. Keep in mind that not everyone has the energy, attitude, or drive to pry open your lid. They'll only try for so long before giving up and giving you space. If you want to be alone, so be it. But if you're waiting for someone to help you break out into the world, you're wasting time. You need to break yourself out of your shell if you really want to connect.
