Bored. Not tired. Entertain me, Tumblr.
I don’t know how to respond to replies in a way that would make sense. Is the only option writing the person a private message?
I don’t think others recognize how draining it is for highly introverted people to make plans that require them to put on a social face of any kind. We want to hang out, to enjoy the company of others; but sometimes, we have weeks or months in which our batteries do not hold a charge at all, an eventuality which forces us to withdraw for longer periods of time. During these times, it’s hard to make plans for next Friday. During these times, it’s hard to say “yes.” We have to live on a day-by-day basis and hope for a few things: that friends won’t take things personally; that friends won’t think we’re taking advantage of their patience; and that friends will be there waiting for us on the other side of our moments.
