Tonight my suitemates and friends, @ college, take turns coming into my room asking me to come to a brinner with them. A brinner, if you can't tell by the name is having breakfast at dinner. Anyways, while I would really like to go and hang out with them my inner child was holding me back. While I feel like I should share what he did to me there is still a part of me that is afraid of people's reactions when they find out why I am such an introvert and is afraid of being hurt again. I trust my suitemates, they have never given me a reason not to but my inner child doesn't. One of friends was so insistent that I come that he almost pulled it out of me, I got away with telling him I had too much homework and that I had a personal problem that I was working on tonight. I know he meant well but I just can't socialize right now.
