Extroverted Introvert


They say you find yourself in your twenties. Well one thing I never realized until I was in my late twenties was that I am a bit of an introvert. 

I always considered my self an extrovert because I'm super social ..but in reality, being social is not the definition of an extrovert. 

An extrovert is a person that finds happiness around others. That's not me.. Being super social doesn't make me happy. Personally, I can sit in a room full of people and still feel alone. This notion used to make me feel dangerously depressed until I realized that I wasn't alone, instead, I was just different. And I now, I love it.. I mean, I love not feeling apart of things, even when I am apart of them... I embrace it.

Typically, introverts are people who are concerned primarily with their own thoughts... That may be true but that doesn't mean that I don't care or empathize with other people. It just means that I enjoy being in my own world. I'm content when I'm in confinement and I truly prefer doing things on my own rather than with a group. I find peace in my silence and solitude... And that's what makes me an introvert. 

But like the Gemini that I am.. Raised and bred by border-lined-bipolar folks... I will never be able to place myself in one box. I can't be contained or labeled .. Thus the reason I consider myself semi-introverted. I'm like an extroverted introvert. Perfect! I'm no doctor but I took the liberty of creating my own term to describe my personality. And that's okay! It's okay to create your own adjectives to define yourself. That's what I do and that's what makes me, me. 

Anyways, I'll be sure to blog about the book! Pick it up for yourself today!

You could be fat,blue, and triangular but have the best heart in the world-And just because you don't look the same or your not as fancy sounding, your still you and unique
