the truth

  1. Over a long wait full of secrets we all want to just be who we want to be and say what we want to. But the reality is it is better to keep your comments to yourself, because most times it might spark an argument that could have been prevented.

    Think of all the times you wanted to tell your friend to ''leave me alone - I'm busy'' , but really you just wanted to relax on your own, some ''me time''. Some people just don't get it about the truth about ourselves. we want you when we need you and still able to do the fun things without you. We all missed the time of being on our own and typing away our thoughts without being judged about how we feel today.

    The truth is said to ''set us free yes it does at a cost, most times. Tell the truth and live with the reality of people judging you.

    It's The TRUTH.

    But seriously, I'm not sure I understand what you were trying to say, Knwit. Are you saying that one should always speak one's mind? Or are you just telling people to leave you alone?

    each memory
    And put it in hardback for people to buy

    it ridiculous

  11. The truth is that extroverts make up 60% to 75% of the population and introverts make up the remainder. This might explain society’s alleged preference toward extroverted behavior. Introverts aren’t just less sociable than extroverts; they also engage with the world in fundamentally different ways. While outgoing “people people” savor the nuances of social interaction, loners tend to focus more on their own ideas—and on stimuli that don’t register in the minds of others. Social engagement drains them, while quiet time gives them an energy boost.

  12. @ timethief. How true that is. I am very much a loner and feel totally drained after a visits from friend/s, especially if they are unhappy or have many problems. And I absolutely loath large gatherings and parties. Even as a child I hated parties and I've always been much happier on my own.

    @ jessie - Yup ditto over here too!

    @ TT - great posts both of them; I was glad to read that introverts just fundamentally engage with the world differently, as I always felt that it must be a fault in me and that I didn't function 'properly' ! It was always like an apology for being second-class somehow - 'Sorry I'm not a people person; I don't do people I do plants'.

    @ jessie
    Me too but I was the eldest in a very large family and due to our circumstatnces I was forced to function as an ambivert for may years. Finally when I left my parent's howm I could be the introvert that I am. If you haven't read Quiet by Susan Cain I recommend it above all other books on introversion.

    Introverts are people who are over-sensitive to Dopamine, so too much external stimulation overdoses and exhausts them. Conversely, Extroverts can’t get enough Dopamine, and they require Adrenaline for their brains to create it. Sadly, as we are a minority we have been raised to conform to expectations of others. What a loss to society the perverse notions that we must all be super social have led to. As I said in the post we’re living in a culture that increasingly values groupthink, despite the fact collaboration kills creativity.

  16. When I was living in student accommodation and then in shared student houses, I was so dreadfully ill it was a nightmare. I hated it so much I sometimes felt suicidal. I drank like a fish and my (as then undiagnosed) Bi-Polar symptoms were through the roof.
    Now, I have a little place of my own, just me and my cat, my BP is controlled with meds and I feel as if I've sailed into a safe harbour after years of navigating through every 'Perfect Storm' imaginable. Like Dovesgold, I prefer plants, and books and animals.
    @TT. Those articles were very good and I've bookmarked them. Thank you. :)

    That makes sense, because if an introvert is forced to spend time as an ambivert, then the over-sensitivity to Dopamine could send them exhausted, drained and feeling down. If this then were to be mistaken as depression, and they were then given anti-depressants which act to increase Dopamine levels, then the pills could make the person feel worse. I may be wrong but that could answer a lot of questions over here lol!

  18. The truth is out there and this blog has engage introverts to go beyond being assumed as an isolated person to be proud to be an introvert. We all unique, that is the truth.
