Self-discovery: Introverted




Secret fact about myself: I am kinda introverted.
Now, this may not be a secret fact if you know me extremely well. When I say that I am "kinda" introverted, I mean I am not always introverted. There are times where I am talking non-stop and acting a little wild, but that's when I am having an entertaining conversation or when I am having a conversation that I actually want to have. I get in this mood where I don't want to talk to anyone, and all I want to do is spend hours on Tumblr or Netflix. That's just how I am sometimes.

Recently, I have realized that I am in this mood a lot though. With school becoming a lot, and beginning to plan for college...I get tired of a lot of things. I get tired of school, my responsibilities, drama, and there are times when I get tired of my friends. I love my friends dearly, but when I get into this mood I just want to be left alone to get out of it eventually. But some people don't get it. It is really hard to explain this, but it's just how it is. The only way for me to get out of this mood is to have enough time to myself for me to think everything through. So if I say "I don't want to talk about it," I mean it.

I am taking the time to focus on myself and my happiness, and spending less time worrying about other people's feelings so much. I have been putting a lot of people first when I am supposed to put myself first; I have learned that everyone is responsible for their happiness. I must focus on taking care of myself before taking care of other people. This is not a way for me to act selfish, but more of a way for me to say "Hey, I am not happy right now and I need to fix that." I feel like it is difficult for some people to say that and do something about it because they are mostly focused on helping other people a lot. There is nothing wrong with putting yourself first; in fact, I encourage you to start putting yourself first if you haven't already. Focus on your happiness and see how much your life may change.
Much Love.

  1. totally agree with this. Sometimes it's just nice to be alone - and it's frustrating when others don't understand that!

    1. Yes! I have to be straightforward, sometimes, when telling people that I just want to be alone. Thanks for reading ♡
