Hey, guys. So, um, I've been keeping something from you. I've had this blog for four years now and it just doesn't seem fair that I've held this in for so long. So, I think it's time that I've shared this with you. Okay, so here it goes...
But you probably already knew that.
But in case you didn't...
I am an introvert.
And there are things I do that maybe other introverts (or introverted extroverts) can relate to.
What is an introvert, you ask? If you Google the term, the definition that pops up is "a shy, reticent person". Oh, but there is so much more to that.
Introverts value their internal environments. This is the place where they get their energy from. As an introvert, I am constantly thinking about what I will be doing in my alone time.
Introverts Like To Be ProductiveThis doesn't have to apply to everyone, but I feel as though a majority of introverts value their productiveness, and they like to do it alone.
Me: *being productive*
Me: *thumbs up*
Introverts Can Get Lonely
We Tend to Love With Every Ounce of Our Soul
I'm sure extroverts love deeply as well! But if any introverts can relate to this, lemme know.
Yes, We Like to Talk. No, We're not Going to Text First
We Like to Travel
Me: *wants to go places and meet new people*
Also me: *doesn't want anyone to know I exist*
Of Course, I'd Love to Come! As long as I Can Stand in a Corner and ObserveYes, we want to be invited to the party! Yes, we want to go out for coffee! And try on dresses at the mall! But once we're out, there's a certain craving lingering in our minds that says "I cannot wait to get back home".
Me: *gets out of house and has fun*
Also Me: *thinks about what I want to do when I'm alone*
Our Rooms Are Our SanctuariesParent: Go to your room.
There are things introverts do that surprise you. There are things introverts do that surprise themselves and make them question "am I really introverted?" (but as soon as you get home, you know you're fine).
