Traffic and public transportation are panic inducing. People are always like, You’re scared of flying? and I’m like, No. I’m scared of losing my shit trapped with all of those people.

The thing I think most extroverts don’t realize is the possibility of introverts actually feeling content with and by themselves. I have friends and family who say the typical, It will be good for you. But why? Because it’s something they enjoy doing? It’s their “normal” just like being introverted is my “normal.” I don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything or am hindered in anyway.
