Lol, I totally get that! I'm an introvert but grew up in a big family, 6 kids! No down time from them was hellish sometimes growing up. But eventually they got to know how I was and wouldn't take it personally when id hide out. Now it's easier that I'm older, ill just tell them I'm going off the grid for a while and give myself a mini vacation from all their drama

Do they know this? If not, tell them!! Make them understand u just need ME time. I had this huge discussion with my fam once like, "I just have a low tolerance for people and drama, it just mentally wears me out. And no offense Mom, I love you but you're people!! I just need space! Alone!"
Lol.. She took it well enough.

Best Answer

I have a hard time saying no because I don't like drama either. I just want time alone sometimes!!

I was the same way! Took a while to get out of that habit, but it's good to assert yourself! I just started saying no to everything one day even when I knew I'd change my mind later. It was good practice, got them used to hearing no and taught me to put my needs first sometimes when it was important

I really don't understand what you are saying, You are truly privileged.

I think I have the right to vent sometimes

Best Answer

Sure you do, but I find it insignificant. Not many people have families or people that love them or people they care about. Then there's you.
