I decided to stay in last night because I was exhausted. I enjoy spending quality time with my friends, but sometimes I need time alone. Some people get their energy from being with other people. For me, I have to recharge my batteries on my own and then I’m able to be present with others. If I’m constantly with other people and haven’t had time for self care and to relax, then I’m just on edge and not present in the moment at a social gathering. I know not everyone is on the introverted end of the spectrum, but I think at some point, we all need to slow down and have some time to ourselves.
Time to be still and time to rest.
When was the last time you slowed down and spent some time just for yourself?
