All Tapped Out

As much as I have enjoyed all of the social events that I have been to over the past month, I think I have well and truly exceeded my exhaustion limits for face to face socialisation. I am utterly drained and feel like I could spend an eternity alone and in silence. My mum always talks about how being around people and socialising energises her. It does the exact opposite to me. It completely drains my energy and it takes a lot of time to recharge.

I’m not sorry I’ve been out, not at all. I’m just going to be paying for it some time with emotional (and physical) exhaustion. I’m all tapped out and just need to be alone to rebuild my strength, and reset my conversational limits.

Am I just weird or does this make sense to someone?

    It is pretty standard for someone who is an I in their MBTI 😉 I am exactly the same. There is only so much being around others I can cope with before I need to shut myself off for a bit.

      I’m really glad I’m not alone in the way I feel. I was so drained I couldn’t even fathom coming onto my blog, or reading other blogs and commenting. I needed to tune out the entire world for a time.

    Makes perfect sense to me too. I am a definite “I” for introvert and while I was alone all of the holiday, today is just exhausting to me socially.

      Thank you for “getting” me. I sometimes feel so weird for being introverted and having limits on my conversational energy. It helps knowing that others feel the same way 🙂

    I can absolutely understand! I hope you get some much needed rest. 🙂

      A very belated thank you. I really needed the rest from all forms of socialising, both in the physical and virtual worlds. I’m reenergised again, ready to burn the social candle again … perhaps more slowly than the whirlwind of December, but I’m not put off totally!
