I shut down, grow tired, and become unresponsive after being out and about for too much. Huge parties and events aren’t my thing. I like to have small kick backs from 1-2 people and i endlessly crave authenticity in my interactions with the people i rely on.
I really hate being an introvert because I sometimes think “oh hey, I can totally hang out with a bunch of people right now! I can handle it! I hate being alone!!” and then three hours into hanging out I realize how draining of energy it is for me to be around other people and I just want to curl up into a ball and isolate myself for the rest of my life.
