“Peopley”

If you’ve followed and read my posts for a while – or know me from there – I routinely spend some time in the same social media platform daily, often with the same crowd of people. I enjoy their give and take of banter and chuckles, and most of the time, I’m pretty much of an extrovert there.

My week hasn’t been overly “peopley” in real-life terms. It included only a hair appointment at an owner-operated hair salon and a routine doctor’s visit at a small medical practice. Of course, there was the run to Walmart, which I’d put off for about 3 weeks because there was nothing urgent on my list, and Walmart is not one of my favorite destinations. I purchase my coffee and paper and cleaning supplies there, so when I am getting low on something, I go there and purchase some of everything I buy there so I don’t have to go back for a while. I didn’t even stop at the Dollar Tree store next door, even though I usually shop at both when I’m there. Heck, I didn’t even make my usual weekly run to the grocery store!

And yet, I feel “peopled” out this week. I whizzed through my morning visits on the social media platform, but just didn’t feel the positive vibes hitting me. I even visited – on the same platform – some places yesterday and today that I seldom get to visit. I just wasn’t feeling it!

Unless I am under the funk of the dreaded depressed mood, this is a bit unusual for me, and I’m not sure what to think about it! Just as my brother, Brad, looks forward to his morning coffee-at-the-diner with his group of peeps, I look forward to this time to socialize with my peeps. And it’s not because I have some pressing chores or the like that I think I should be focused on instead!

Do you ever have days when you’re just not feeling it, but don’t know why?

  1. “peopley” is my new favorite word. I think we all go through times we feel more disconnected, even from the things that are our mainstays of socialization. This can be for any numbers of reasons, none of which are bad, if they are short-lived and intermittent. Sometimes you feel the energy in a room and sometimes you don’t. It is when you stop going into any rooms at all that it becomes a problem. Stay connected and the energy will find you!

  2. As I’ve grown older, my tolerance for people has lessened considerably. I have to interact at work begrudgingly but when I’m at home I tend to just avoid the general public as they irritate me.
