Sometimes I just don't like people.
It's not that they've done anything utterly terrible. They haven't made me cry or made me mad. They haven't necessarily done something stupid. It isn't one person in particular.
People are just overwhelming. As a whole.
This might be my introvert speaking but sometimes I like to lock myself in my bedroom, close my room-darkening drapes, and pretend the rest of the world doesn't exist.
It's my happy place.
This sounds bad because people generally don't like to hear that you need a break from people. They often take it as a personal offence, but it's not at all! I like you just fine. I just need a break from the sheer amount of Homo Sapiens that I encounter on a daily bases.
Everyone is so complex and different and interesting that sometimes it's utterly devastating.
I promise if you let me be I'll be happier and more well-disposed.
Recharged and ready to go.
I'll be ready to face the world...tomorrow.
