Retreat

I was feeling a little tired and pressured this week so on Friday I shut everything down. I didn't answer the door, or the phone, and I stayed off of IM until today. I did answer one call from my parents. Since I missed the three previous ones I thought I could talk with them.

I wasn't hiding but rather making myself some space for a while. Being social (or cybersocial) is grand but sometimes a little aloneness is good.

would it have mattered if you had been hiding? I do that sometimes when I can't cope wiht communication

No I guess not. I may have felt a little guilty when I wrote that. :)
