18 Struggles All Introverts Need To Understand About Extroverts
Yes, you know you tend to talk a lot. And no, you don't just like the sound of your own voice.
You need to fill every silence longer than two seconds with some sort of conversation...
Because awkward silences are your LITERAL nightmare. Seriously, how do people just sit there and not say anything?
And sometimes once you start, there's just no stopping you.
You use so many hand gestures it's like they have a mind of their own!
And you can't help but worry that people wish you'd just SHUT. THE. HELL. UP.
When you are quiet though, even for a little bit, people automatically think that you're deathly ill.
While you totally get the concept of personal space, you sometimes get a little too close for comfort.
You rope your friends into all sorts of activities because you just know they'll have fun once they're doing it. But you still worry that they won't.
And even though meeting new people can be exhausting, ou kind of can't help always trying to befriend almost everyone you meet.
In fact, every time you have to do an ice breaker at work, you're the first to volunteer (and inevitably piss everyone else off).
The thought of going home to an empty apartment is the worst feeling is the world.
So if you're always going out, it's because you HAVE to.
And while people always expect you to be the life of the party...
...sometimes you're just not feeling it.
So even though you always look super-excited about everything...
It's only a matter of time before the burnout gets to you.
But until then, you're going to OWN who you are. Because you're killing the game, loud voice and all.
