Lately My mom keeps harping on me to get out and do more. Quite honestly it rather annoys me that she does because SHE doesnt get out and do things. she goes to work..and comes home..yes she has my sister to look after but..I get out a heck of alot more that she does. I go to work for a min of 8 hours a day....Once a month i have kinette meetings ASWELL as whatever activities and events we plan to do through out the month which ends up being 2 or 3 times. I have a weekly D&D gaming night i go to and i go to movies with various friends. WHY should i get out more when i'm happy as i am AND quite honestly i get tired of being around people and i NEED my alone time or im going to get really really grumpy. Maybe its just me but i dont feel like other people have a right to tell me i need to get out more.

I hate it when people, especially those we love, do things like that. I mean, I'm pretty comfortable with who I am and what I do and I don't complain about being lonely. But, I'm constantly told how sad I must be and how much I'm missing out on. Well, I'm just fine and I am having fun in my life, just not the type of fun that they think I should have. If you are not hurting anyone and you are not complaining about being lonely or are sad, then they shouldn't pick on you.

I'm like you. I like my alone time. Sometimes I just hate being around people and it is frustrating when people tell you that you need to get out more. I get even more frustrated and it just makes me want to spend more time with myself. Next time she brings it up, you should tell her maybe she should take her own advice.
