Introverts are drained by social encounters and energized by solitary, often creative pursuits. Their disposition is frequently misconstrued as shyness, social phobia or even avoidant personality disorder, but many introverts socialize easily; they just strongly prefer not to.
I read these descriptions of introverts and laughed. I’m an Introvert. There are moments that I’m an extrovert and I like to socialize, but most of the time I’m an introvert.
Today, I was thinking, Why do I feel so drained? I’ve had 7 days off and I shouldn’t feel like this.
I realized I’ve been socializing too much and I’m an Introvert.
My ex is an extrovert with a capital E. He didn’t take the time to understand Introverts. Another problem with the marriage, because he thought I was anti-social and couldn’t understand how I could just hang with myself and Enjoy it.
After realizing that I’ve been a social butterfly past my limit, I’m going to go hibernate and play by myself for awhile…lol.
