I enjoy my own company

The current trend of our society is to be talkative, enjoy big social gathering and become the friendly guy who's nice with everyone. In other words, extraverts are who we're all pressured to be. I couldn't disagree more.

Lately a book has been interesting me a lot. "The Introvert's Way" ("La revanche des discrets") by Sophia Dembling, where she writes about introverts and how to stop apologizing for who you truely are. It inspired me to share a few pieces of who I'm and to emphazise the fact that there is no need to fit into our society standards.

Even though being an extrovert is also a part of my behavior, I consider myself to be more on the introvert side. People often mix it up with shyness, but both have nothing in common. I talk whenever I have something to say, if not I'll just stay quiet and listen. Rambling around just to fill the silence isn't my cup of tea. I don't fake enthousiasm. From time to time, I do enjoy parties but I much prefer staying home watching my kdramas and dreaming about my future korean husbands (yes, there is an -s). I don't mind being alone, I enjoy my own company. I don't feel lonely if I'm not with thousands of friends. Meeting people is really fun, but don't ask me to spend day and night with you.

We have to accept and respect the way of being of everyone. Introverts or extroverts, it doesn't matter. Nobody has the right to force you into being someone you're not. So, who are you? Tell me...


Follow me on Snapchat to see me dream about kdramas @furiouslychic.

  5. My boyfriend loves going out and partying, but I'm more of a stay indoor kind of girl. I'm glad I have a great excuse : I have to stay at home because of my son ^^
