Thoughts On…Being Antisocial (Prompt)

Ever feel like you need to get something off your chest?  Sometimes I’ve just gotta talk it out.  That’s why I’ve decided to do a monthly feature called “Thoughts On…”  At the beginning of the month, I’ll provide a prompt to stimulate discussion.  The point is to get us to put our thoughts out there – writing it all down can be quite cathartic.  If you want to keep your writing private, that’s your thing and I won’t question it.  If you’re ready to put it all out there, I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments.  At the end of the month I’ll provide my own thoughts on the topic of the month.  Think of it as a book club for writing.

thoughts on - antisocial prompt

In this month’s “Thoughts On…” column, I’d like to think about being antisocial.  To most people I seem to always be on the go so I’m sure it can be surprising that I often cut myself off from everyone for some alone time.  Sometimes I am concerned that I am becoming too lame for my own good.

Thought starters:

  • Do you sometimes feel the need to take a break from everything?
  • What do you like to do during your “me time”?
  • What is the right balance between activities and downtime?  Do you stress that it’s either one extreme or the other?
  • If you’re in a relationship, how has your approach to alone time changed?

Check back at the end of the month to see how I tackle the need to be alone!
