Shout out to my introverted peeps:
I’m going to bring some clarity on what an introvert is. Even though everyone on Tumblr is “skilled” in this area, I still see completely inaccurate posts all the time so I’m going to throw in my two cents.
Introversion is a healthy capacity to tune into your inner world. It is a constructive and creative quality that is found in many independent thinkers whose contributions have enriched the world.
Introverts have social skills, they like people, and they enjoy some types of socializing.
However party chitchat depletes their energy while giving them little in return.
Introverts enjoy one-on-one conversations, but group activities can be overstimulating and drain energy.
Introversion is not the same as shyness or having a withdrawn personality.
I haven’t felt this at home in a while. I wasn’t afraid of anything. And I felt myself unfolding like some winter-weary bloom. The warmth of friendship changes you. It draws out the poison and breaks up the tension. You feel better and rest easier knowing you are treasured.
