I think it is an extremely important social skill to know when people in a room do not want to listen to music and when they want the music turned down. Extremely important.
And yet so many people seem not to have this skill…. and they often seem to claim control of the music.
I’m just drained beyond reason – overstimulation is 100% a thing, and not being able to get away from it is extremely stressful on and exhausting for the body. That applies for the mind, too, actually. I have had too much experience with this from dance, the gym, and various other social situations. One thing I have truly enjoyed and loved about the quarantine lifestyle is that I do not have to be in or be missed from those environments. That seems to be going away again now… not so much a fan of it, though…
