I know that free time is usually spent by socialising for people my age, but I like to use quite a bit of mine to also have time to be quiet and comfortable. When I am by myself, I don’t have to be afraid that others are staring at me, or think I’m fat.. I don’t have to feel out of place.
This evening I have had that + my daytime hours were packed with seeing friends… good combo!
I do kinda hate that my mental illness makes it hard for me to feel normal, but a little time doing as I please, without the pressure that being around people can cause me, is soooo good.
Understand! I like my days best when I have fun time with friends and a lot of time afterwards to recoup from the socializing.
