Social Gatherings

I don’t often like social gatherings because there is too much “small talk”

I am introverted, so social interaction already drains me

But the conversations I do enjoy are the ones that quickly go through the small talk and get to the deep stuff

The stuff that makes me excited to hear

The conversations that dive deep into life, into philosophy, into what it means to reconnect with people you have not seen in a while

Conversations that go under the surface and allow me to really connect with the person on an intellectual level and allow me to better understand the other individual

Social gatherings are exhausting but can be fun if you know how to position yourself to have these deeper conversations
