Three Brutal Introvert Truths
1. Blissful solitude sometimes becomes loneliness.
Introverting in your valuable alone time and space is a necessity yet there are times you also feel the need to get out of your comfort zone. This can often turn into an overthinking paradox between wanting to stay in your hermit cave and actually going out there. A byproduct of this point could be 3AM binge listening to your music playlists and dwelling in thoughts about your place in the circle of life.
2. You’re bad at keeping in touch.
Quality over quantity and meaningful over swallow relationships is your mantra but reaching out to your social circle can be left on the side as you get lost in your inner world. That’s not to say you don’t value your friends or the people who mean something to you, it can simply be forgotten while the reminder to do so keeps lingering in the back of your mind indefinitely.
3. You socialize better one-on-one.
Social interaction focus is a real thing and you’re more effective at it the less people there are around you. The more people means you’re less likely to be an active part of the conversation and rather spend more time listening and observing. Has to be mentioned that this depends on the people and the familiarity of the situation but the gist of it still remains in one way or another.
