Whenever someone invites me to attend a party or gatherings. I always feel the urge the decline. I don’t have the energy to deal with a lot of people. I can handle one or two friends.

I enjoy the company of some people, especially when we have the same interests. Some people really drain me. Like, I don’t want to be with them. I want to go home. But I can’t say it, I’m afraid that I might hurt their feelings.

Here’s the guide I wrote on how to deal with introverts.

Respect their alone time

The most comfortable place for an introvert is their room. After class, I go home and lock the door. I lay in my bed and look at the ceiling. I let my brain think what it wants. I love the feeling of silence and solitude. This is a different kind of happiness with myself. People might find it weird, but I need time to think clearly and prepare myself to deal with people again.

When they say no, accept it without asking questions

It feels good when people invite me, but I hope they understand if I decline them. Sometimes, I don’t like going out, or the place where I have to go is draining me and making me uncomfortable.
