Recently, I’m starting to see the marriage between the extrovert and the introvert in me. The introvert has been coming out to say hello.
I follow an Introverts page on Facebook which has really interesting articles and stories regarding how introverts are, how they interact with others and how they aren’t all they are made out to be. I am outgoing, I like to talk to people, sometimes I don’t know when to shut up; but there are limits to that. If I go to a party, I will need quiet ‘me’ time the next day. I need at least half a day to myself every weekend.
This weekend, I went to 3 parties. It was a lot of fun, but exhausting! I was surrounded by people for most of the weekend, that today I spent most of the day sleeping, reading and watching movies in my room. I had to cancel plans with friends of mine to do this. I’m sorry guys, but I had to! I would overwhelm myself and probably because physically sick if I was around people for the whole weekend. Busy/people/talking = exhaustion.
As much as I have amazing memories of drinking games, Fat Bird Pinot Gris, BYO dinners, 21st birthday parties, Presidents & Assholes card game that I bossed, bonding with my workmates, I made the right decision.
I have introvert qualities. Can many of you relate to this?
