SuperListenMode: Getting Emotionally Ready for Social Situations


SuperListenMode: Getting Emotionally Ready for Social Situations

I have that deadpan tired quiet "I don't care anymore" face when I'm over the limits of my energy. Then I look forward to and embrace that wonderful recovery solitary time haha

Usually I argue that it's not worth going if it's just an hour - I need to stay longer to make the most of the whole thing and transport time or not go at all. On the other hand, I do need some morsels of social time or I risk feeling disconnected, excluded and not valuable to people in general. Bonding with loneliness as a friend for too long isn't great. I've been there countless times.

Definitely a balance of making sure I get naps, breaks, social time, the fact that I can leave and say no if I'm not feeling up to it and trust that kind people will understand. :')
