This was the title of an article on Yahoo today.
I do not have any of the qualifications for the jobs listed.
Such as computer programmer, accountant etc. However,
I am a writer, and I am an introvert~the article mentions both.
It's nice to know that I'm not a freak though. This article
brought a lot of comfort. I don't like to make small talk, usually.
I feel very uncomfortable around groups of people.
It hurts my skin sometimes. Sometimes more than others,
and it becomes unbearable. And I don't want to pretend
to be a social butterfly, or to posses amazing social graces anymore.
I love my people, that's different. My people are my family,
my boyfriend/best friend, animals, a couple friends, very few
here and there. Books, art, music, movies, nature.
The older I get, the more introverted I seem to become.
The less I want to try. It's nice to know I'm not "alone"
as ironic as that may sound. That there are others out there
who feel this way too.
