Talking? Later! Let’s experience some silence for now.
We all have people who are way too reserved, quiet all the time as if they are in a different world and always anxious when out in public as if this world is nothing more than Jurassic Park. (Couldn’t be more dramatic).
Here are 7 things you can feel only if you are an introvert.
- HIDE ME PLEASE!!!
Going out and dealing with people isn’t an introvert’s cup of tea at all. They would rather just flip the cup, sit inside and hide. Down with ‘hideous’ syndrome.
The thought of constantly being judged all the time even on the slightest of things is what keeps going inside an introvert’s mind. They may show up late for the party, but would be the first one to leave! Their mind is a beautiful place of thoughts about self and situations they’ll probably never be in. Being alone doesn’t have to be depressing every time. For introverts, it’s a time to reflect and recharge! Meanwhile… Ahem ahem!
- SILENCE IS THE BEST ANSWER!!
If an introvert meets another introvert, what would they talk about?
Constantly advocating about silence silently is an introvert’s unintended way of telling you to appreciate silence and JUST SHUT THE TALK UP!
A mind deep into thoughts and heavy observations, and a body relentlessly producing introvert juices, wouldn’t entertain conversations!
- THAT SUDDEN HAPPINESS OF PLANS BEING CANCELLED!!!
One of the biggest happiness’ of an Introvert’s life is the gathering or outing plans being chucked. Call it their idiosyncrasy, they would literally dance around in joy (obviously when nobody is seeing them doing that).
- HOME IS WHERE COMFORT ZONE IS!!!
No matter what, comfort is the most precious thing to an introvert. The same person may be funny or humorous on social media but too spooked-out when met or dealt in real. Struggle comes into picture when its time to be independent and to step out of the homes, I mean, comfort zones. Going out of comfort zones can be legit exhausting for them!
- SELF COMPANY BE THE BEST!!
Your friends who are introverts are still your friends even if they do not talk to you much. They are still your group mate even when they cancel plans and make several reasons to opt out. Don’t judge. It’s nothing but their undivided love for self. This doesn’t mean they like to travel alone (obviously), but they just feel better being with their own selves at home, or at libraries, or in parks or at….home yes!
- BUTTERFLIES, RATS…and what not in stomach!!!
Its totally difficult to imagine how an introvert deals with the day. Being out of home alone, first time and without the permanent residents of the residence called “Comfort Zone”, its a real battle. That weird chest pain and tickling can only be felt by these born observers trying to fit in this fast forward world.
- TEXT MESSAGES OVER PHONE CALLS!!!
Two words- Phone calls.
Keeping the day to day struggles aside, even making or receiving calls is a task and you would often hear from them complaining about it. Call them ignorant or rude for not picking up your phone calls, they have a thousand reasons ready to suffice that in which “Text me, don’t call” tops the list. Of course, there is more to these 7 things. Things that only they know they feel. And believe me, it just takes a lot to come out of the shell. But for now, all this, from an introvert’s dear diary.-Anuj
