Sometimes, I get physically exhausted from talking to people. It is the curse of the introvert. I have built up some social skills over the years. It’s not like I am without ability. A few quips remembered. A bit of banter- keep the conversation moving, try to sound animated, ask others about themselves, the usual small talk skillset.
But if extroverts are recharged by social connections, there is no way I am one of them. A lie down, a long walk, a quiet room. Anything to feel human again.
We all need a quiet space from time to time. The brain feeds off the infinite, and it needs to be quiet to tune in.
