“Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just -sitting thinking: oh, people are such a bunch of assholes. But it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating.”
I wish more people understood this. It often takes work to be in a group of people; sometimes, it’s honestly not worth the hassle.
