I’m my own best friend.
I gain energy when I’m alone. Its a combination of time well spent, in solitude, allowing my body to unwind and rewind in a positive way. I’m not shy. I’m not anti-social. I just enjoy some minimalisim within a world of so much stimulation. Being an introvert doesn’t define me, but it does affect me at times. It’s important for me to keep balance, know my limits and take care of what my mind and body are telling me. I’m learning a lot about myself as I explore my personality, and it’s been helpful to recognize why I am the way I am.
Lost At Sea. When I’m in a large group of people or a room full of strangers, sometimes I feel like I’m being pulled by the current and washed to shore by the waves. I get drained, quickly. Feeling like this is completely normal for an introvert, which is why it’s important to have time for yourself each day to re-charge. Whether it’s reading a book for an hour, going for a walk, or simply just laying down to relax. My own self is my favorite company.
Bridge The Gap. Keeping balanced between me time and a social life is important. Having alone time is great, but so is being social. Get your dancin’ shoes on, girls! I’m open to try new things, test limits and meet new people. I won’t learn my limits until I test them out.
Deep Connections. Relationships that come easily are a breath of fresh air for me — it’s very important that conversation remains meaningful, and even better when I step outside my comfort zone and embrace silliness. I don’t open up all the time, and often think about what I’m about to say before effortlessly blurting things out. Keeping a core group of friends that I know always have my back keeps me socially content.
Fish Out Of Water. It’s important to not feel this way. Many people are introverts through and through. Confidence is key. I’m not ashamed that I’m not a social butterfly 100% of the time. Day by day, I learn that it’s ok to be effected by enviroments, people and emotions. I may be very sensitive, but learning how to stick to my true self in situations is beautiful.
