My friend came over yesterday and we watched Buffy while we ate cookies. It was really fun. Today I went to my best friend’s house to sew some costumes for my troupe. Then I have a show tonight. I might be going to roller derby tomorrow. A couple we know invited us over for a bonfire sometime.
WHAT IS HAPPENING??
Voluntary social experiences outside of a bar context? Enjoying the company of others, in a genuine way? (Realizing that others might enjoy my company?) Making sort of last-minute plans? I am amazed with myself.
I feel a little less isolated than I felt a few weeks ago. It might be the weather, though today is an exception because it’s pretty cold and gross out. I think making a concerted effort to be more open to social events has helped my brain and my psyche.
Now I just need to get this anxiety under control, and we’ll be golden.
