so often we want to hide from it all. we want to stay home and not go out. we don’t want to see people all the time – we want to be alone or at home with family. this is ok. this is a normal feeling. but why do you see the same people out all the time – always looking happy, always acting like they want to see you. it is because they make themselves go out into society. they do this because they like being out in society or to keep themselves in the mix of society – to feel part of something, to have fun, to interact with others, to not be alone. there are folks that like to be alone, that don’t mind being alone, that like to chill all the time at home, away from society. this is a good thing if you are happy alone. but it can lead you to move further and further away from society – which can be detrimental to your well being, to your state of mind. therefore, even if you are perfectly happy sitting at home, you still must force yourself to go out into society, to be part of groups, to interact with others that you like and dislike. you must not hide, you must force yourself to go out into the world – to keep your mental health in balance and to face your fears.
