Need for extended refueling

There are times when an afternoon of reading in a coffee shop will recharge my introverted tank, and then there are times when I need an entire week of refueling. It's almost as if there are two tanks - the short term tank and the long term tank. The short term tank can be refueled quickly but the long term tank takes much longer to fill and is drained by extended periods of extending compassion to others. It's time for a vacation.
