Fighting against Our Own Wiring

Written By: Lauren Howard



I need to talk to people. 


To be clear, I don’t WANT to talk to people, but I NEED to. 


I am wired for isolation. I want to stay in my introverted little world where no one talks to me except for the occasional text message. 


On days when I am on the phone the whole day, texting people I adore, laughing with those who make my world turn, I’m as happy as a clam. 


I feel dynamic, capable, and, dare I say, appreciated. 


I know those are great days. 


And as soon as they're over, I never want to do it again. 


It’s like I have instant amnesia on the importance of interacting with other people, and I want to go back into my dark hole of please-no-one-ever-talk-to-me-again. I might as well have never known how much better my life is when I include other people in it. 


Brains are weird, friends. 


Sometimes, the hardest work we do all day is fighting against our own wiring.
