Give yourself alone time, and down time. It is not about being anti-social or an introvert. Highly Sensitive People, like you, need quiet time to rejuvenate your beautiful, sensitive soul and system. Let your loved ones know that you aren’t being unsocial. Let them know that you love them; it is just that you simply need time alone to relax and recharge your nervous system.
It is time to be alone. After being social with family and friends and/or simply having a day at work, give yourself FULL permission to say goodbye to the outside world. Go and get your much needed quiet, alone time, guilt-free! Start today. Notice how good you feel afterwards and how you are more present and pleasant with those around you, and with yourself.
“I have full permission to take quiet time every day.”
