How LongWill It Take?

Standard

I went to a social gathering tonight.
CORRECTION. I forced myself to go.
I don’t drink,
so I brought my knitting.
I felt like I was going
to crawl out of my skin,
in spite of multiple people
being kind to me.
I just didn’t feel like
I belonged there.
How long will it take
to feel like I am being welcomed
by life again?
