10 Myths/Facts About Introverts
Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.
Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.
Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.
Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.
Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.

Depression is a bitch…and so is this insomnia…
I don’t know how many people really realize how much depression can keep you from being…well, you. You try to go about your days reminding yourself, fake a smile, sit up straight, stay positive, act yourself, act normal, whatever that means. If you’re good at it, no one will ever notice, but if you’re horrible at it like I am, there will always be this undertone of sadness in everything that you do and say. The things you once loved become nothing to you…in fact they look a lot like chores now. It only escalates from there, though everything is going downhill. You begin sleeping too little or too much, but of course none of it is of quality. You don’t want to get up. You don’t want to go out. Some days you don’t even want to face those who have befriended you. You feel yourself getting sucked into this big black hole that you swear you’ll never get out of. You feel numb and unresponsive to the things and people around you. It’s like you’re in one huge daze. You long to feel something…anything…and you believe your only hope is to end it all…
