I Need "Me" Time to Recharge

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 258 People

    Escapism.

    Thought I'd share my story here too, originally in a comments section of this community (which I'm so glad exists): I'm by nature a social person I love being around people and conversing, going out and doing social activities. But that's just one side of me. Sometimes I...

    Me Time

    I am incredibly shy... I can tolerate being around other people, but after a little while I get overwhelmed, and I have to be by myself. Some people think I am rude, because all of a sudden I will pretty much just run away. But I am not rude, I am just afraid of people. People...

    Recharging The "me" Battery

    Sometimes I just like to get away from everyone and leave myself some time to think. I can't handle it if I can't keep to myself for one time a day. It would be kind of painful. Sometimes it's like a side effect, I start crying. Sometimes I don't know why, sometimes I do. But it...

    Doesn't Everyone?

    I really really do not like the way my life is going right now. At the present time the amount of "me" time I get is ZERO! The husband never leaves the house, he is ALWAYS home. I go out to work, but that is not "me" time since I have to be there and I have to be around other...

    Of Course I Do..

    All the time. I can't stay around other people for too long before I get emotionally and physically exhausted lol, they just wear me out. My 'me' time always consists of music (like Paramore, t.A.T.u., or Evanescence), drawing/painting, and alot of thinking. Often I'll turn my...
