One More…

30 Jun

One more day packed to the brim with activities and obligations ~ chores and treats ~ good times and adventures ~ and then ~

~ then ~

i’ll relax ~

~ and breathe ~

                      respond to comments ~

sleep late.

I am remembering  to enjoy as i go along ~ don’t misunderstand.  No complaints. And actually, i am remembering to breathe most of the time.

But you know, i’m an introvert.

No, really, i am.

And maybe an empath, or at least i’m kind of sensitive to other people’s feelings.

So when i spend a whole lot of time around people, and very little time alone, i start feeling like i’m wound too tight, trying to contain too much.  It starts to feel a wee bit overwhelming, and like Za Za Gabor, i just “vant to be alone…”  Only without the accent.

Tomorrow, i will carve out some time and space to just be.


As Mouse points out in her comment, it’s Greta Garbo that says that.  Here or here:

    i’m glad you are going to make some down-time for yourself. Funny, you used to seem uncomfortable with the idea of being an empath. It is hard when you get overloaded. Thankfully, you know how to get back to your center, back to you. Lots of hugs. i’m so proud of you.

      Hey, Jade,

      Well, I’m not exactly comfortable with the idea now – see how i said “maybe?’ But i figured if i just described how i was feeling, youall would say, “Yeah, that’s cause you’re an empath,” so i thought i’d beat you to it…. lol.

      Thanks for the kind words.

    As an introvert, it’s hard to get used to the fact of living with someone. That’s another stress on top of all your other stresses. Just give yourself some time and … Congrats on all the new stuff that’s happening to you.

      Hi, Sin,

      Yeah, i kind of hate to admit, but it is a change, and mostly, it feels good, but yeah. It’s stress too. Not to mention working on incorporating his stuff in a way that blends them.

      Thanks for the congrats, and good advice!

    Actually, it was Greta Garbo who said that — think it is was said a movie. 🙂

    It’s got to be a very emotional time. Tomorrow you’ll get to be gentle with yourself!

    I’m glad you will soon be able to rest. 🙂 I’m a Myers-Briggs INFJ. Lot of empathy. Lots of “I vant to be alone.” I understand that whole mix. Wolf is an INTJ, which means he thinks more than he feels, but still enjoys being ‘alone’ which suits us both just fine.

    Do yourself a favor. At the end of the day, Take a shower. If you have salt or sugar scrub, all the better. Get in the shower, step into the water and as you scrub, let all the stress, tension, and dreck from the week flow down the drain with the scrub. Imagine all the emotional garbage flowing down the drain and far away from you. 🙂

      Thanks, Wrodwytch! That sounds like wise advice, i’ll have to try that!

        It really helps.

    Yeah, they all said it, above there. You know I get it; and all the “stuff” that goes with leavetaking, everyone just piling on all the emotions…”we’ll miss you, sorry you’re going” yada yada yada…just becomes noise after awhile.

    Glad you’ll breath. And yanno what? none of us will die if you don’t answer any of the prior comments to prior posts. WE alllll understand the week you’ve had…don’t pile that on your “to do list”…

    Hugs and love and breath….

      Hey, ‘Nilla,

      i do know that you “get it” and i sure appreciate that. Thanks for assuring me it would be ok not to answer comments – i might end up doing that! Decided i’d work my way backwards anyhow instead of going back and starting where i left off.
