It’s an exhausting battle at the time. I am a pillar of excuses but I do always feel better once I’m out and doing it. Then I wonder why I battled with myself but the next day start all over again.

I have a lot of friends and family who often bring up how unhealthy isolation is but if I feel content and good by myself I’m not sure why it’s unhealthy other than someone else said so.
