how to be alone
Once a week I leave home for my "alone time". Because I'm an introvert, I only thrive when I can occasionally be alone to process my thoughts and to not talk or interact with people. I return to my babies and my husband vigorously recharged.

If you are feeling tired and stressed...which would you want to do more?
a) Go to a party with friends and laugh and talk all night.
b) Go to a library and take notes on what you read.
