Doing what we feel (not what we feel we have to)

Friends, I just did something I’ve never done before, and it feels *fantastic*.

This afternoon we met out-of-town friends for drinks, and I was so excited to see them but kind of dreading socializing with 15 other people I don’t know… I’m so out of practice because of COVID and while I can do small talk for 2 hours, any more than that I find exhausting.

Usually I would push past what I’m comfortable with and end up deeply fatigued and irritable and tetchy. But today I decided to try something different: I spent a lovely two hours connecting with the friends I went to see, and then slipped off to watch a movie.

A movie! By myself! At The Labia! Is there anything more delicious?

I saw The Electrical Life of Louis Wain and it was charming and delightful and heart-wrenching and heart-warming all at once, and I loved it.

My mom and I used to watch movies together a lot, and any time I go on my own I kind of feel like I’m going with her…

I wonder what would happen if we all did what we feel instead of what we feel we have to?
