Yes! There are times where I wish I could walk around holding a sign.
A way of letting people know when I am “introverting”.
I am usually so outgoing and social but there are times where literally I just want to be alone and need to recharge.
There are times where I just am off, and not really wanting to deal with people and put on my normal face.
Whether it be stress, depression or whatever I tend to have my moments of “shut down”.
People tend to see me as this bubbly open happy person….
and sure, that is who I am. At least who I aspire to be.
I also have this other part of me. This introvert who lives inside. This anxious, uncertain, scared part that at times becomes dominant.
So yes, there are times when I truly do wish I could wear an “out of order” sign letting people know that it is not them, I am handling my own demons and sorting out my brain so I can continue to be that person people expect to see.
