"Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating."
— Anneli Rufus
"You will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do."
— David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest (via thesleepinglessons)
