Just in case you might not know already, I consider myself an introvert. Yes, I know, shocking isn’t it. 😀
I have been an introvert my entire life. I love being by myself and get overwhelmed being around so many people, unless they are people I can connect with. At one point I thought maybe I was ambivert, then when I checked my surroundings, I had noticed it was people who are authentic and on the same level as me.
So, I believe—I am sure that I am just an introvert. Sometimes, I get awkward when I first meet them. Then, when I get to know them, then I can decide whether this person is someone I can be around or not. And if they choose not to be around me, then that’s okay too.
There was a time (or two) I was sitting at home in my own little world, and the person I was living with went to a family cookout that was across the street. One of their relatives walked over to ask me why didn’t I come over and kept trying to convince me I would have a good time. And every time I would tell them that I was okay and wanted to be by myself. Whether they thought it was weird of not, was their problem, but the person I was living with did bring me over a plate a food over. And kept saying how everyone wanted me to come over.
I always felt content being in my company, and I now choose wisely who I let into my space. I don’t like not being myself around people. And if I feel like I have to be anything else, then I can’t be around them.
I don’t care to stand in front of people to talk. I rather write it down and let them read it. I don’t like when people try to put me under a microscope to see what is wrong me. I am just like this. I can go out and be around people even though I don’t like crowds, but it doesn’t bother me too much. But, I don’t want to hang out with a group if I don’t have to, so I don’t see how these Real Housewives of these cities do it.
Are you an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert?
