"People empty me. I have to get away to refill."
I expect I am not alone in feeling like this sometimes and in no way does it mean that I don't love and care about my family and friends, and that I don't want to be with them.
I think it just means that sometimes I get exhausted by groups of people; of gatherings of people, especially of those I don't know all that well.
And my answer is simple. I have to get away.
It is a real sense of having been emptied, of having been drained and having no reserves left to deal with the world at large.
Like my mobile phone, I have to re-charge.
And what's not to love about the Scottish highlands and islands?
