Introverts

by Girlinshadows (Theheroiccouplet)

An introvert doesn’t necessarily mean a socially-awkward person. We’re not some “weirdos” who never talk to anyone. We just prefer our own company rather than that of other people, and a night in watching netflix rather than a night out partying.

Introverts are characterized psychologically as “a person predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things.” Others characterize introverts as shy, reticent people. However this isn’t always true for an introvert. We aren’t always shy people. When I go to a party, I talk to my friends, I make a few new ones, have some fun etc.but I’d definitely rather be at home watching Dance Moms on my laptop while eating ice-cream, or reading my book while taking a bubble bath. Personally, I seem to find myself more of an interesting person than anyone else. I know it sounds narcissistic, but think about it. All of your interests are common with yourself, and you care about each other more than anyone. That’s true about every person, each individual should find themselves the most interesting person they know. I guess you could say that even though I have a whole lot of friends, my best friend is me. You just know that no matter what, you’ll never fight with yourself, you’ll never betray yourself. And I find that thought comforting.
