Connections are important, but at the moment. I just don’t have the space or energy to connect in person with others. I just want to do my own thing at the moment. There is nothing wrong with wanting alone time.
My family is having a gathering, but I just am not in the mood to be a part of it. I prefer to spend my time doing my own thing. Doing the things I enjoy. I want to read, color, write, hear my own thoughts, relax. There is much freedom with alone time. We don’t always need to fill our space with another person.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to stay home, and do your own thing, or just wanting to go out on your own. You get to do things on your own terms and timetable. I do love connecting with friends and family, but this is not the time for me. As an introvert, I need space to recharge. Connecting take energy, and I don’t have any for it. Others may not understand this need for space, but they don’t need to. This is about my happiness and peace. Always remember to make time for yourself when needed. and if you can.
