I wish I were an extrovert

Dear Santa Claus. For this year i want to take energy with interactions instead of feeling drained. To think of parties, gatherings and bars as fun and not as places of torture and effort. Thanks 馃憤鈽猴笍

You and me both. I like people like you. We should not get together sometime but instead stay home longing for some ideal social interaction that will never happen, and then lets talk about it here, what do you say?

[@58876,Coppercoil] eye opening I say. But do you think we're any kind of an exception? That we will not adjust to a group dynamics and push the awkward person away?

somedays I think i need to grow a stronger skin and stop being pushed back by others so easily!

[@917679,elafina] I think you're perfect as you are. That sensitive nature makes you kind and open minded, creative and conscientious. But it's a burden to us, when we feel lonely and that we don't belong. That maybe we aren't making the most of our time here on this miracle planet. It's hard at times.

[@58876,Coppercoil] aw thank you, sweet reply! It's hard at times..but now I wrote a letter to Santa, wait we'll see....馃憖

If you can't be inward to the point of calmness of mind as you get in meditation, your mind is capable of making you feel drained like a hell.

[@657449,ABCDEF7] yes what you write is right! Though it can become challenging to hold a meditative mind AND an open heart 馃槖

[@917679,elafina] Yes, definitely not that easy.

Good luck

[@1233412,Benjago] much needed!!!
[@917679,elafina] I'll need it too. I know that exhaustion you speak of.
Nice wish

[@1226502,Ostrich] thanks 馃А I've been a good kid this year, more than ever perhaps, so there might be hope for me 馃榿

Best of luck with that.
That's one thing I haven't yet accomplished. And, as an INFJ, I don't think I'm likely to.
