So when I was younger I used to be quite extroverted, but as college went on I became a full fledged introvert… I like being introverted, I mean it is who I am and it is just how Ive come to act now. Sometimes I feel really bad about myself for being introverted through, like for example last night there was a huge party at my friends house and I really just felt like staying home, listening to music and having a quite night. It was a peaceful night but I just kept being really hard myself for no reason telling myself I should have gone and that I was missing out but then I’d think again and know If i went i wouldn’t have had fun anyway because I wanted to stay in… Any advice for not feeling bad about being an introvert?
You are who you are. Don’t change to suit others.
Blame society, not yourself lol.. :)
Make friends with a few more introverts. It’s hard from time to time when so much value is placed on the extroverted lifestyle, but less hard when you’ve got a few other like-minded individuals to validate just how rejuvinating it can be to occasionally kick back solo with a six pack, grab that 360 controller and beat Limbo in a single night. (…hypothetically) Then balance it out by planning a group adventure later on in the week. Extroverts mean well. But they draw their energy from the crowd whereas we draw it from within. Doesn’t mean you’re being unsociable. The trick to pretty much everything in this life seems to be balance anyway. Just own it. <3 INTJ
