Yeah this is pretty much me, too. It's just protecting my energy levels and my privacy. I have very little energy for people's issues, and so the number of friends who can call me at any time and get free advice is a small handful.It actually is dependant on the person. I have differant levels of tollerance for differant kinds of people.
Some people, i don't want in my home at all. :Few
Some people, can come into my home so long as they don't talk to touch anything. They're not welcome for long. :Few
Some people can come in, and talk about relivant things, and pick things up if they ask. : The, "norm."
Some people can come in, talk a lot, pick things up if they ask. : few
There's a very rare select few group of people who can come in, flop on the couch, rant about their day, get some coffee from the machine and a mug, and do whatever the hell they want withen reasonable boundries. : Very, very few... EVER.
I know what you mean. Getting to know my newly found family is extremely exhausting. I'll chat with one of them for about an hour and then need to recharge for a few hours.Yeah this is pretty much me, too. It's just protecting my energy levels and my privacy.

I have one close friend that I've known for 8 years now, and she calls me from out of state for advice on her problems and it always sucks up at least an hour or 2. I don't mind because she's gotten past my filter, but I'm always exhausted afterward. She's not a T, so she desperately needs practical Ti intervention and that's why I get the phone calls. lol
It's like people are energy vampires and I've only got enough blood for a few. :happy:
