    - I got into my car and wound down the window.

    - It’s really hard to be *honest* Do you mean alone?.. Honest does not make sense, especially at night. That’s when the pain is the hardest to bear.

    - He wasn’t the type that was bothered by anything, he chose to be alone.

    - I don’t know whether school starting again after the long summer break makes me tired or if I’m just bored by everything.

    Thanks in advance

    Re: check these sentences, please

    concerning the 3rd sentence, can you really use the word bothered?
    because i'm talking about a loner, he's not being bullied or something, he just wants to be alone. maybe i should just use BULLIED instead of HARASSAED?

    help me out

    In this context 'bothered' means 'concerned', thus

    He wasn't the type that let things concern him
