My Necessities

I always have my phone and my headphones with me.

My phone, of course, is somewhat of a necessity.  I need to be able to contact people if something should happen to me.  My phone is also where most of my music is, hence the reason I need headphones.  I don’t know what I would do without music.  It helps me with a lot of stuff – including cope with life.

When I have my headphones in, most people think I’m intentionally being unsociable. But that’s not the case at all.  I’m an introvert, so I don’t talk much.  Sometimes it’s difficult for me to find things to talk about with people.  Also, because I don’t have any siblings by blood, I’m used to being alone.

Sometimes, music really saves my life.  I can listen to certain songs (on repeat, if needed), and they will usually help to pull me out of depression.  So, sometimes, I really need my headphones and my phone.  Unfortunately, these are usually the times when people think I’m trying to be unsociable.

I wish anxiety and depression could be explained easily.  Then, maybe, just maybe, people would understand why I need my phone and my headphones.
