What was the best time of your life – high school, college, your 20s, 30s or 40s?
Many introverts would go back to a womb of one’s own.
- It’s the only time you could relax without bracing for human interaction – unless you were a twin or part of the Octomom’s brood.
- Being alone was as normal as avoiding eye contact with everybody and everything, mainly because there wasn’t anybody or anything.
- Life in the womb was the first and last time you were part of the “in” crowd, albeit a very small crowd.
- You could be unapproachable to your heart’s content because no one approached you.
- There was no agonizing small talk. Not once did anyone ask, “Nice womb, who’s your decorator?”
- There were no self-doubts because there wasn’t a family therapist telling your parents, “There’s something wrong with that kid.”
- No one asked, “Why are you so quiet?” Just as well since you didn’t know how to speak.
In short, it was the most normal you will ever feel – until a doctor slapped you while attempting to make small talk.
