Anti-Social

I'm becoming anti-social.  I love seeing people and Kevin always says I recharge by being with people.  He recharges by being by himself.  

Lately, I don't want to do anything.  Maybe I'm plain tired of plans.  Maybe I'm tired of being on the go so much.  Maybe I'm tired of traveling.  Maybe I'm over having too many commitments.  I just want to do what we want to do.  I don't want to be kinded into doing stuff.  I don't want to do stuff because I feel like I have to do it.  I just want to be!

Kevin thinks it's funny because I'm becoming more like him.  At least for the time being.  We just go nuts all week at work and it's the last thing we want to do is run run run all weekend.  This past one was perfect...a few things going on, nothing major.  I liked it. 

I'm probably just in a phase.  

Who is going through this right now?

I'm a mix of both, I usually need a day off on the weekend and then a day where I see people. However, if I traveled around for work as much as you do, I'd probably need both days off!

My husband and I are the exact same way....I used to love being around people and he likes being a homebody by himself. Now I'm starting to be more like him! Nothing wrong with that, I guess!

I don't call it being anti-social -- I call it being a homebody. J is my favorite person on the planet and on weekends, we completely disconnect. If we leave our neighborhood, it's a miracle.

For me, too, it's part of a general slowing down and focusing on the important stuff. My friends and family are incredible - if I don't see them THIS week, I'll see them soon. I'm at the point in life that I don't have that friend bullsh#t of "why don't you hang out with me all the time??"

I can definitely relate. I have a hard time saying no which is half of my problem. I get to the point where I become sick and have no choice but to slow down. Brad reminds me often that real friends are going to understand if you can't make it all of the time.

Welcome to the club! I've been anti-social for a while now. :) Being at home with Chris is the best!

I am definitely experiencing this! When you are "on" and "on the go", it is exhausting. I feel it is not "anti social" but "selectively social" :)

When the husband and I are both off from work on the weekends, I love to just hang out with him. The weekends are my time to re-charge, clean the apartment, and do my grocery shopping. My husband is off to a business trip abroad for a little less than a month, so now I'm planning visits to friends and family on the weekends. I think the important thing is to do what feels right and spend time with those you love.

I've always been a homebody - welcome to the club :) I think finding the right balance is key!

MCW said...

Maybe its because you aren't home for more than 2 days at a time :) I wouldn't be going anywhere either if I were you!

I agree with MCW, with your travel schedule, I don't blame you! Also, when you have a husband and pup that you truly adore, why go anywhere else?!

LuLu said...

Amen! Thank you for saying this. I was wondering how you do it. I have felt that way for the last ten months. Glad it is not just me but my job WEARS me out.

I travel too and it just wears on you. Nothing beats coming home, resting and getting organized lol.
