A thing I was told today

  1. "You not being happy right now is inappropriate"
  2. 😐😐😐😐
  3. Look.
  4. My grand mother always believed that we can choose to be happy.
  5. I used to believe that too.
  6. I think it can work sometimes.
  7. But..
  8. EVERYONE! Has those days when everything just sucks.
  9. When you can't put your finger on it but you're pissed.
  10. I happen to have those days kinda frequently.
  11. I know why. And I'm doing what I can to meditate on acceptance and improve my mood in other ways.
  12. I think I do a good job.
  13. Also.
  14. I'm not a very social person anyway.
  15. I'm an introvert.
  16. I just don't do groups well sometimes.
  17. I think of myself as a functioning introvert in that I can pull up enough energy to do group things and fake my way through extroversion.
  18. But if I don't get enough sleep or especially if I'm hungry
    Read hangry
  19. I'm not up for it.
  20. I'm not up for looking, sounding, or acting energetic.
  21. You can if you want to
  22. But when you get in my face about not being a big goofy/enthusiastic idiot like you
  23. And telling me that my matter of fact/curt behavior is "inappropriate".
  24. I'm going to laugh.
  25. Because....
