I get in these periods where I feel connected to people, others were I feel only marginally connected, and some times where I feel completed disconnected altogether. Sometimes it amazes me how quickly I can flirt between these feelings in a social setting. At my core I know there are certain people in my life I'll be connected to even if I feel disconnected and act like an ass but it's not always easy to remember that. Lately things have been good but the past couple of months or more I've had more disconnected feelings than I would like. I'm not sure why I feel this way although it's got me thinking I should be trying harder to be social and connected.

...the only problem is that I'm an introvert who loves her alone time with a passion. Now that I'm living with my boyfriend (which, sidebar, is fantastic overall) I'm even more possessive of my alone time when I get it. So what's a cantankerous introvert to do?

Social media came to mind, particularly after I updated my LJ yesterday. Why not try to be more active on social media?, one of the voices in my head proposed. A nice idea but one big fat fly in that plan is that I'm a notorious slacker. I tend make grand plans to do post every day, add people, and comment more often but then three weeks in I either feel overwhelmed and want a break or I slack off, realize I didn't accomplish what I wanted and feel like shit.

I don't know, I guess the only thing I can really do is try and try again. I mean, I might not succeed in being more social but as long as I keep trying I'm not exactly failing, right?
