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.
