Human connections are my occasional anchor to reality.
I really like my own time where I am exploring my inner world and running wild in terms of learning, questioning and exploring. But sometimes, I get really lost in my head with all my ideas, suppositions and theories about the world, that I drift down in a vortex of abstraction so far away from the present moment that I lose track of what is actually going on. A way that worked for me so far in curbing that is that I reach out and interact with another person in order to validate and double check realities. “This is what is going. This is what I am doing with my life and where I am at. What about you? How’s life? How’s reality? Do we still live this way? Perfect, thank you very much.” The conversation is usually along those lines.
Thus is the life of an introverted thinker.
