I Need "Me" Time to Recharge

    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...

    I Don't Dislike Other People But...

    It's been hard for my spouse, my friends and some members of my family to understand but there are times when being around too many people where I have to make or listen to conversation for too long makes me shut down. I'm sociable, likeable, easy to get along with. I'm not...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
