I am not a hermit
I just value being a lone.
Parties can be hard
I like going to parties, but even when I go, I usually just talk to my best friends. Or by myself if I don't know anybody there. Maybe somebody will talk to me
I practice conversations in my head
Social stuff is hard. So I practice all my conversations in my head over and over again
Doing things by myself is OKAY
You don't need to make me feel weird about it. I don't feel weird
I'm NOT depressed.
I'm not mad or shy. I just don't want to talk to anybody for a bit.
Yes, I talk to myself. Yes, I read books.
And yes I love people.
I'm an introvert.
I just don't always have the energy to be social
