We Know A Deep Truth About You Based On What Muskoka Chair You Pick
You don't like to burden other people with your problems, so you typically like to joke around or focus on what's going on in their lives. But as a result, you feel like nobody really knows what you're really like. You know your true feelings have value, you just haven't learned how to share them with people you trust yet.
It seems like just when you figure out one part of your life, another part going completely haywire. Start killing it at your job? Your love life suffers. Find someone you like? Suddenly your health is all out of whack. You know you need to find a way to give each part of your life the proper attention, but there never seems to be enough time.
Even the smallest interaction can send your mind into overdrive, carefully analyzing and re-analyzing every word and inflection. You wish you could learn to go with the flow — if only you could put together a spreadsheet to track your progress.
You know your life isn't going too badly, but when you look at other people in your life, you see them working toward and achieving things you can only dream of. Should you be working harder? Are your priorities the right ones? Even when you do reach a milestone, you just can't shake this nagging feeling.
Sometimes life is just so overwhelming, and you find yourself daydreaming about selling all your possessions and starting over somewhere new, where nobody knows anything about you. But you also know that your problems will still be your problems wherever you go, and there's no quick fix.
It's not that you hate people themselves, it's that shallow, perfunctory exchanged with people seem so useless. You abhor small talk, and your worst nightmare is running into a vague acquaintance in a place where you're forced to make conversation.
You've got one or two close confidants, but when they're not available, you keenly feel the smallness of your social circle. You find it difficult to open up to people, but you miss the rewarding feeling of finding the right person to bond with.
You don't have the time or energy for unrewarding relationships in your life, and as such, you've cultivated a small but valuable group of friends you can really trust. Anyone who wants to make it into the inner circle really has to prove themselves, because you're not going to waste your time on a superficial friendship.
You hate letting people down, so even though you know it's important to take time to recharge, you can't help but worry that you're being selfish. Sometimes it feels like nothing will get done unless you do it yourself, and it's hard to remember that other people can fend for themselves.
