In the pilot episode of Friends, Ross asks the guys to come help him move into his new apartment. They begrudgingly say yes, and then he asks Phoebe and she says something like "I would love to! But I really just don't want to."
I wish it were that easy. I wish that was a valid reason for not spending time with friends when you just need some time by yourself.
As an introvert, I struggle constantly on finding enough time to be along and recharge, but I also feel a lot of guilt every time someone asks me to do something after work or on the weekends and I say no.
I wish it was just acceptable to say "That sounds amazing, but you know what, I don't want to."
Anything that you wish was acceptable, but isn't?
