I’m selfish when I feel I’ve given too much of myself to something.
That something is usually people.
If I’ve expended too much energy being around a person or a group of people over a certain period of time, I become selfish and I turn my focus very far inward. Sometimes to the point of seclusion. The time period varies too, I can last a few days or a just couple hours around certain people.
From the outside, it may look like I’m being reclusive but I’m just in need a of a recharge. A book or just some quiet. A little darkness. My Moleskine. Maybe some whiskey. Or wine.
I just need to get back to myself, is all. I’m selfish with myself.
Gotta protect my peace.
