42.) Sometimes, when I have been at a party for a little while, especially if there are a lot of people i don’t know there, I feel the need to be alone for a moment.
And once, a family member told me I shouldn’t take too long. But she wouldn’t leave me alone for ten minutes and I felt more and more frustrated until I finally snapped at her to stop pressing the issue and give me some space already. I didn’t mean to snap at her and said I was sorry but felt very guilty about it for a while.
Hi anon! It might not be caused by introversion, but it could be exacerbated by it, which would still make it relevant to this blog.
Also, a lot of introverts I’ve known do not have hobbies or things that may interest their extroverted friends, causing them to believe that they themselves are not interesting, especially if they do not have any introverted friends. While the thought that they are not interesting is probably not true, #41 might be referring to that sort of situation.
Thank you for the feedback though, and I hope you have a good rest of your day! c:
41.) Sometimes friends try and make plans with me and I come up with excuses. I love my friends so much but I feel like they’re missing the fact I’m not very interesting or outgoing socially. I keep thinking they’ll realise this the more we hang out, so I avoid it as much as I can.
40.) I just don’t know how to talk normally with people. I can be nice such as saying please and thank you, such as little times and you never have to see them again. I just come up blank when people try to talk to me.
39.) My parents want me to get a job, but I am way too scared. They push me to the point of tears when we have a conversation about it.
38.) It’s hard for me to attend large gatherings. Some times I agree to attend things, but cancel later because I can’t muster the inner strength to go. When people tell me how disappointed they are in me, I find it hard to ever accept another invitation from them again - they’re being so disrespectful.
37.) There’s nothing wrong with me! I may not like to be seen but I can see; I may not like to be heard but I listen very well. The only thing that’s wrong, is the way you see me…
36.) I find it easier to give a speech to a room of strangers then to go in and talk to them in a normal conversation.
35.) Why does it feel so wrong, to want to stay out of the spotlight.
34.) Being around people is absolutely draining. I hate plastering on a smile and forcing myself to be “sociable” when all I want to do is sit and take in my surroundings, concentrate on my work, or just reflect on things for a while.
