My Introvert Delemma - SOLVED
The last 2 nights, we slept with our dog, Laydee - right in the middle of our bed. What a snuggler she is. She actually hugs you. Tonight though, she can sleep in her own crate. She does tend to hog the bed. She sleeps on top of the covers, in case you're all going, "Ewwwww." Hey, she's family, and we love her to pieces. It was a treat for all of us.
I received an invitation, to a baby shower for next Sunday. The baby is already here and lives in Texas, and will be here, next week for the shower, given by the Grandma and friends she went to high school with. She is a nice young lady - I only met her once and most of my interaction with her is on Facebook. I know her mother. (The Grandma) However, her mother and I, have not seen each other in about 4 years. She keeps saying how we MUST get together soon. - I guess this Sunday, is "Soon."
I am a contented, happy introvert. I don't like baby showers! I just don't feel comfortable, especially since I would be going alone. We're supposed to bring our partners along. Well, my partner will be working. (he works Sunday-Thursday 4pm to midnight) That's our schedule and our life.
I started to wrestle with that annoying feeling, that I SHOULD go.
I don't know anyone
It's not like I am looking for new friends
PLUS I'm horrible at small talk.
I decided, I will RSVP and send a gift to the Mom's address in Texas and be done with it.
Introverts feel they always have to "explain" to those who are extroverts. Like my dear husband. First thing he says, "Oh, how nice... it would be good for you to get out."
Okay, like I am not being nice, if I don't go? and Get out? I get out everyday -
Hey, I'm fine just the way I am. I don't need to force myself to do things I don't want to do. So I am happily, NOT GOING.
