Its World Introvert Day
Shout out to all my fellow introverts who are perfectly comfortable to sit in silence without feeling the need fill it up with awkward conversation and meaningless noise.
Introverts are a somewhat misunderstood sort, in a world that wont stop talking and all you want is a perfect moment of silence.
I feel lost in a crowd and I get asked the question “why are you quiet?” a lot, its not because I have nothing to say; I am always on the verge of words, yet never quite speaking; almost say things much more often than I say them.
“why dont we all sit in a big circle hold hands and sing kumbaya?”

Shout out to the Quarter Wife for sharing The Introverts Holiday Survival Guide
I write to know am not alone….
I want to be a mystery
yet be known,
to be in a crowd,
To be a wanderer,
yet have a home…….
My personality type is INFP that basically means I’m like an onion, deeply metaphoric, made up of enigmatic layers beneath layers wrapped up in more layers & if I cut myself I cry
This all adds up to create an individual (such as myself lol) who is creative and highly empathetic; listening to many people but actually talking to a tiny elite circle who really know the crazyness that lurks beneath the surface..
Here are my favourite authors who are also INFP:
William Shakespeare, J.R.R Tolkien And George Orwell
I am not a huge fan in labels and confining yourself, I am a firm believer in that to define is to limit; but knowing what sort of individual you may be makes you better able to play your strengths and work on your weaknesses.
