Idle thoughts: Alone time

As I go through therapy and stuff to deal with my depression, I find my alone times to be a mixed blessing. I really enjoy solitude (probably because my home life is so hectic) but I find that I need to keep myself occupied so I don't fall into a low mood. Hopefully, that'll translate into a lot more drawing.

Yeah, I find if I spend too much time by myself I let myself fall into really counterproductive, depressive moods. I've been trying a lot harder lately to plan to be around people a lot more often than I ever used to as a means to keep those moods at bay. in a lot of ways, that is exactly what this drawing is about.

at this point i don't feel like copious amounts of alone time leads me to low moods or depressive tendencies. i thoroughly enjoy and look forward to being by myself. but i do sometimes worry that i am somehow lacking the emotional sensor that should let me know when i've spent too much time away from other people, and i'll accidentally pass that threshold, and i'll mentally and/or emotionally break, as it were.
