LIFE | Hello, I Am An Introvert
I was driving home from a lively day at work and I felt quite tired and drained. Then, I remember an intelligent woman telling me about introverts. They prefer to internalize energy and productively create something from it, rather than spending that energy on other people.
When I heard that, everything in my mind became clear. There is nothing wrong with me. I am introverted and that is simply who I am. It is not a flaw, and it is not a disability. Yes, I have anxiety, but that's just a cherry on top of my glowing personality, isn't it?
Also as a result of being an introvert, I do not believe in small talk. Why waste energy on such trivial nonsense? If I don't care about something, why would I pretend to care just to be part of society?
Well, I say life is too short not to spend it wisely. Parties have no appeal to me. Reading a book in my cozy bed in solitude appeals to me. I'm not weird. I'm not a freak. Simply, I am an introvert.
How about you?
