Complete and utter social exhaustion. If you’re an introvert, you’ve been there time and time again. Maybe it was the bachelorette party this weekend. Or the networking event you forced yourself to attend. It might have been a busy, people-filled day at work. Whatever it was that decimated your energy, you’re feeling it. All you want to do is crawl into bed with a good book, turn off your phone, and not be bothered for hours (or better yet, days).
If it’s any consolation, you’re not alone. Here are tweets from 19 introverts who know exactly how you feel. Can you relate?
Talking to one person drains me so much that I can’t bring myself to initiate a convo with any more people #introvertproblems

I miss my family but everytime they’re around in large quantity I feel like I suffer from small amounts of brain damage. #introvertproblems
