I'm not shy. I'm not anti-social (though I can definitely seem like it sometimes). My energy just drains faster when I'm in large groups of people and I gain energy when I'm alone. It's a mixture of time well spent, in solitude, allowing my body to unwind and recharge in a positive way. A time to recollect; a time to let my guard down and just 'be'. I enjoy spending time alone. Most days I am my own favorite company. Don't get me wrong, I do like socializing, but I dread small talk. I don't like forced smiles and conversations. It's soo uncomfortable and quite frankly boring. I'd rather put my time and energy into deep and meaningful connections. Though sometimes I feel like people will mistake my quietness for rudeness. It kind of bothers me because I have absolutely no intention of coming off that way. I like trying new things, though, and meeting new people. I enjoy exploring and observing. I have a small group of friends and I'm perfectly happy with that. I don't really know what possessed me to share this, but I thought why not. Maybe some of you can relate. Are you introverted or extroverted?

  1. I can totally relate to this article! It's just as I could hear myself talking! I enjoy my own company most of the times and I can only recharge when I am alone.
