Look at you... going to bed early and loving your messy bun look. You are the self-proclaimed '20 Year Old Grandma'.
Except... you're not.
Just because you prefer nights in alone and you love to bake doesn't make you a 20-year-old trapped in a grandma's body.
You say you're a 20-something grandma, but you're really a 20-something shut in.
I know introverts need time alone. But when you consistently knock down everyone's invitation to go out- you have no one to blame but yourself. No one feels sorry for you when you have no plans.
You can't say you don't like going out, or eating certain foods, or being around people- when you haven't really tried. You really haven't put the effort in.
You have no friends because you always turn them down. You act like you don't want anyone around.
You hide in a robe and slippers and miss out on the world out there.
You are the queen of sulking and attention-seeking. And no one is going to want to be around you if you act like you don't care about them in return.
And I know you may hate the idea of dialing someone's phone number, shooting them a message of some sort - but in reality- that's how people know you are living, that is how people communicate.
It's time to grow up and let people know what you need and what you want. You can't blame others when you are the one who never lifts a finger in any sort of relationship.
No one said loving your pet and watching Netflix is a bad thing - trust me we all love bingeing out on our shows.
But the thing is if your idea of "fun" and "adulting" is being a couch potato, then that's on you. You have no friends because you seem to not want them. And if that it the life you want, that's sad.
While the rest of the world stays social, and up to speed with those who love them the most, you will waste your life with your butt glued to the recliner.
Alone. With a cat and Netflix.
