Stay true to self

I have started to accept that I am just not a very sociable person, and that is okay.

Today I saw a friend and we talked over coffee for a few hours.

I decided I would not see anyone tomorrow.

I cannot schedule lots of social events. I tend to feel drained if I do.

If I spend a long time talking with someone, I like to be alone afterwards before I see another friend again.

I hope friends who get to know me better will understand this and would not take it personal when I turn them down.

It is important to be honest with yourself.

It does not matter what other people do or prefer.

I used to try and be as sociable as I can because I did not want to feel left out when everyone else was having fun.

I definitely met more people but it was not possible to stay in touch with all of them.

I feel less stressed and more in control of my pace now.
