I’ve been staying in an since arriving in Chicago and I must say, it’s been an experience. One that brought on a thought and made me think. Not a bad experience just one that I wanted to vent about. It involves people, shocker.
Yesterday, I was approached by someone else staying in the house, for the second time might I add. This person wanted me to explain to them why I kept to myself and wasn’t social, as if I owed them a reason. Again this is the second time this person has approached me about the same thing.
Honestly, it kind of threw me off. I thought my days of explaining myself were over. I mean I’m not mad at the person, it just made me think. Why are they mad at me for not socializing with them?
Why do people think you owe it to them to explain anything? If I don’t want to socialize with you, I don’t want to socialize with you. I don’t need to give you a reason why. Maybe I just like to keep to myself? What’s it to you?
I don’t know. Just a thought. I don’t mean to sound mean, I just genuinely don’t understand why people put so much time and effort into wanting to be understood by other people. Maybe it’s just me.
On a more exciting note. Today was a good Monday. Melissa McCarthy was on and that’s a good way to start any day. Now it’s time for a hot cup of tea and season three of Shameless. Yes, I just started watching Shameless. Don’t judge me.
