It’s still a bazaar feeling to me when I would rather go home than stay out late and have fun at a party. Yes I went to my work holiday party but I didn’t even last a whole hour. I may be an extrovert but I’ve realized I don’t like making small talk with people just for the sake of trying to be social.
My team doesn’t really like to do the party scene so I went to the party by myself. I enjoyed the food, half a margarita and hit up the candy bar just to have something to do before I realized I didn’t want to force myself to stay there all night. Eating junk wasn’t going to help make me feel better either.
It’s hard to be social when it’s only you. I also would rather be home relaxing with my Callie girl ❤️🐶 I admit, I tried to do my best to have fun, enjoy the disco floor but it just wasn’t really fun for me to be there and have no one to talk to and hang out with.
Instead of feeling lonely and awkward, I got the hell outta there and headed home. It’s ok to skip the party when it’s not where you want to be. I’m happy I got home at a decent hour to spend time with my puppy 😊
I’m also happy I put down the one drink when I realized I didn’t feel like drinking anymore. I have 5 miles to run tomorrow morning 💪🏻 and I’m glad I’ll be doing it with no hangover 🙌🏻
It’s ok to not be the social butterfly anymore. Know what makes you happy and be ok with your decisions.
