Hello, All! Happy Friday to each and every one of you! We made it!!! Yay!
For a very long time, this question has plagued me… ‘Am I a true introvert?’ The reason why I question myself is because of the mere fact, at least I don’t believe I have ever been diagnosed as an introvert. However, I have all the signs of being one. (This very question is something I plan on asking my therapist on my next visit on March 19, 2019).
The definition of Introvert: shy, a reticent person.
I’m certainly not shy by any means, but (there is always a ‘but’) I tend to be more anti-social as I have gotten older. When I mean older, I mean since I was in my early 40’s, I prefer being alone most of the time. Heck, I’m happier usually being alone in my own little ‘Zen Zone’ which I refer to my bedroom than anywhere.
Sure, once in a while I like hanging out with my friends. I hate being anywhere near massive crowds. When I go food shopping, I want in/out as fast a humanly possible. In other words, you would never catch me shopping on Black Friday.
To be perfectly honest with you, my small group of friends actually call me “Grandma” simply because I don’t like speaking on the phone all that much or hanging out too much. If I hang out with friends, I can only handle (maybe) four hours tops. Then, I’m antsy and want to be left alone.
I do enjoy my own solitude and peace, and can easily be entertained by just being here on the internet googling away, or here on WP. I’m not the type of person who posts on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and every other form of social media. I did Facebook religiously for years, but I feel as if I’ve outgrown the whole deal of noting what kind of dinner I made, and taking pictures of it.
I certainly don’t want to be the center of attention one bit. Yet, at the same time, I crack stupid jokes when I’m with friends and my mother. Again, for only short periods of time.
So, let me ask you this… Do you find yourself to be more of an Introvert or an Extrovert?
If you are an Introvert, do you find a problem with being one?
I’d love to hear what your answers are to the following questions, please leave them in the comment section of this post.
Thank you for taking the time to read!
