Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
I feel like I understand myself now….
You know, when you feel an empty kiss and not want to have sex with someone you thought you wanted to spend the rest of your life with and then realize you were actually suppressing your unhappiness for at least a year… You tend to die a little inside because you know you’re not good enough because you’ve run out of love for the person that was so strong so long ago. Then you cry for months because you know you’re going to break their heart, but instead of telling them the whole truth (just like a mommy, yes) you protect them with a version that is nicer because you still care and can’t bare them being upset. Then, hoping every morning for the rest of your life, you hope they find someone twice as better as you ever were for them because you’ll feel guilty until they do. So don’t you dare tell me how I feel, or what I should do, because you know what? I’m looking out for their future of being a husband/wife to someone that loves them as much as he/she loves them. They’ve got a lot to learn and I wish him/her well on the journey. And if he/she EVER needs help, it’ll always be here unconditionally. And this is the last I have to say on this matter. Except for one thing… You’re not going to tell them this because then they’ll never learn to let go… And they’ll be like me… In love with the one person that she could never get over from because the purity of happiness that was extended from that one person, that made her feel alive for the first time in her life, and didn’t feel like she was faking pleasure, she didn’t wait long enough for… And then they’re gone… forever…. because they never knew…
I’ll be waiting just for you
I love you…
