I write a lot more when I'm living a real life of routine, and when I'm facing everyday challenges regarding working and relationships and friendships. I write a lot more when I have time to myself to recharge, time to muddle with the things in my brain, just time to be. I really haven't been alone for 3 and a half months, not in my own private space with time for me. No wonder I feel drained.
There are days that I can legitimately just feel myself being unable to talk to anyone, like I need to revert back inside of my brain and stay there for a while. But then there are days when I've been living a normal life, and all I'm craving is a connection with anyone at all.
It's strange, isn't it. Some people's energies can drain you but some can light you up. Some take but some give. Some give so much that you feel ready to burst after being with them.
Most importantly though, take the time to give yourself what you need. If alone time is what you're craving, take it and don't feel guilty. If you're craving company, tell someone who will give it to you.
We're all just exchanges, bits and peices of muscles and memory telling one another what we and it is all about. So don't beat yourself up for not being able to give 100% all the time. You're just a human. (ps look how beautiful @loisvangentevoort is. miss u)
