Some Changes Were Necessary

After I left my ex, I really needed time by myself to recharge my batteries and feel like myself again. In the first year, I knew I was not ready to start dating again, and in the second year, I was open to the idea, but I had never been interested in any offers. But during all that time, I kept mostly to myself and didn’t have much of a social life outside work, if that even counts.

Recently, I’ve been to a family reunion of sort sort, and I really had fun hanging out with my family and friends, and with that came the realization that I was living a secluded life. I’ve been living on my own for a year and I had never invited people over, except once or twice, and it was limited to one person at a time. Not only that, but I had a very limited phone plan that I wasn’t even using. 

So as the time says, a change was necessary in my life. The first thing I did was upgrade my cell phone plan to unlimited call in the evening and text messages. My best friend, which lives in a far away land, had just taken that same phone plan and we’ve been connecting through this in one month more than we did in the previous year. It was about time. Then, I organized a party, well let’s say a quiet evening among friends, and I really had fun. I’ll definitely be doing that again.

It feels good, and I’m learning a few things about hosting. It’s not as easy as it seems to be. :) And it’s also for those reasons that I’ve been away recently. I had stuff to attend to. Social stuff.

Anyways, I needed to share!

I'm glad you did this and shared! Being social is important I think, something I'm sort of failing at right now though..

We are pretty secluded too, we have friends (2) over once in a while but have never organized any significant get togethers. Our house really just isn't big enough. Maybe one day.

Lucid, you'll get there. ;)

Misfit, there is no excuse like living in a place too small. My appartment is really small, you just need to take that into consideration and invite fewer people at once.
