- What Matters
I believe everybody has what I call a social battery.
My battery runs out at the worst of times.
I will be with friends having fun then my smile drops from my face and I just want a break from them.
I just go quiet and wait for my battery to recharge
I believe that I have a big social battery and I can spend the entire day with friends but I like a small break just a few minutes to myself.
Like a phone if I charge too long it damages the battery.
If I am alone to long I am not in the mood to be sociable, and get snappy with my words
When somebody else’s social battery runs out I try to be respectful and give them a minute to compose themselves.
I learn to recognise the feeling of my smile slipping away.
I recharge and the smile is back and excited to be with friends.
I know better than to put on a fake smile.
Authentic smiles are the one way road to go.
