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!
