Why does it feel so good to cancel plans? I'm in a period of my life where I do not want to talk or hang out with anyone, especially people from work. I don't understand how many times I have to cancel for people to take a hint. I know, I should grow a pair and straight up tell them I do NOT want to hang out. Leave me be. But no, not if I want to maintain a healthy work relationship. Ever since I was released from Lake Side, I have wanted to crawl in a hole and disappear but instead I've been forced to be pulled in all different directions with people who are trying to "heal" my anxiety. I just want to be left alone.
