It can be challenging to be an introvert in a society that glorifies partying and other social lifestyles. In fact, it can make you feel downright awkward.
You might wonder why you don’t “fit in” with the rest of the people around you who thrive on the energy of being surrounded by a lot of friends. You may want to “break out of your shell” but don’t know how. You might be sick and tired of being labeled “the shy one” when you’re in a group.
Being an introvert can be uncomfortable and here are ten problems that only they will understand:
- You HATE Small Talk
The idea of making superficial conversation with someone makes your skin crawl. You’d rather scoop your eyes out with a rusty spoon than talk about baseball scores or vacation plans. Why can’t anyone else understand your desire for deep, intellectual conversations about the meaning of life, the socio-economic implications of mass migration, or what The Beatles rise to fame meant to the music industry? Introverts often find ourselves uncomfortable with small talk and other things they consider insignificant, but get us talking about our passions and you might not be able to shut us up.
