I found this picture on Pinterest and I love it because it’s true. I like to think that I got out of my whole I’m a misunderstood outsider/wallflower who likes to be left alone thing but you can’t change who you are. You can always be the best you, but in order to do so, you have to accept who you are. I’m an introvert and that’s okay. I like people, I don’t mind being in crowds, I like to talk (and sometimes I talk a lot), but sometimes I just like to be by myself. I like the quiet.
If I can be completely honest I like to not talk to people and to be left alone on Friday nights and Sundays. I know, the fact that I plan when I don’t like to talk to people takes O.C.D to a whole new level. BUT it’s not even that I PLAN it, it kind of works out that way. Fridays I spend the whole day at work, talking to customers and my co-workers so that by the time I get home, I have a headache and my throat is actually sore from talking so much. Sundays are usually the only days that I have to myself! I hibernate in my room and read, or Google things, or do homework, and I usually only come out for food and/or coffee.
On the other hand, I do agree with The Perks of Being a Wallflower when Charlie’s teacher tells him that he needs to participate in life. I didn’t participate much in school and I find it difficult to participate in life when I’m reading a really great book. And yet I truly understand the importance of participating.
Sometimes it’s okay to not want to participate though, to not want to talk to people.
Gosh, I must sound like a total biatch!
I’m not a bitch, I’m an introvert and that’s okay.
“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” – The Perks of Being a Wallflower
