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.
Myth #6 – Introverts always want to be alone. Introverts are perfectly comfortable with their own thoughts. They think a lot. They daydream. They like to have problems to work on, puzzles to solve. But they can also get incredibly lonely if they don’t have anyone to share their discoveries with. They crave an authentic and sincere connection with ONE PERSON at a time.
Myth #7 – Introverts are weird. Introverts are often individualists. They don’t follow the crowd. They’d prefer to be valued for their novel ways of living. They think for themselves and because of that, they often challenge the norm. They don’t make most decisions based on what is popular or trendy.
Myth #8 – Introverts are aloof nerds. Introverts are people who primarily look inward, paying close attention to their thoughts and emotions. It’s not that they are incapable of paying attention to what is going on around them, it’s just that their inner world is much more stimulating and rewarding to them.
Myth #9 – Introverts don’t know how to relax and have fun. Introverts typically relax at home or in nature, not in busy public places. Introverts are not thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. If there is too much talking and noise going on, they shut down. Their brains are too sensitive to the neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Introverts and Extroverts have different dominant neuro-pathways. Just look it up.
Myth #10 – Introverts can fix themselves and become Extroverts. Introverts cannot “fix themselves” and deserve respect for their natural temperament and contributions to the human race. In fact, one study (Silverman, 1986) showed that the percentage of Introverts increases with IQ
I love being held in somebody arms. Especially in the arms of somebody special. That feeling of being completely safe from everything and everyone. To feel secure and sheltered by somebody that cares about you. I love it.
I have no problem if a boy I am on tips with, goes around chatting with girls that are supposedly friends. My problem is only if he starts flirting around. If you really feel for me, you shouldn’t have to flirt around because if I’m what you want, then what you want is right here for you. Flirting can lead to much more….
I still need to feel wanted by you. Just because you know you got me and you don’t think I’m going anywhere anytime soon, it doesn’t give you the right to start treating me differently. There shouldn’t be any lack of motivation in wanting to keep me as yours. You should put in twice the effort to make us move forward, make progress, also to make sure my feelings remain the same. In return, I promise you this battle will be worth the win. Keep fighting for me.
all these dedications to the late Junethea Centeno…[sigh*] i can only imagine how her loved ones feel…i am truly shaken…
i’ve always known to cherish ever single moment i’m given with my family and friends..and i’ve seen the theatrical shorts and videos about couples and the tragedies that happen when something like death occurs…but this, this was real, a real person [whom i did not know personally] past away in a car accident… hmmm
and i think, that could have been anyone..what if it had been me?..dammm that could have been me in my Honda Civic on I-26 driving home from Columbia.. :/ knock on wood…
i’m still in shock, i mean she posted a video and at the end she said to drive safe..ohh you never know, huh?..
my sincerest condolences to the Centeno Family, Jon, and all her loved ones
Guys are there for you. They don’t talk shit about you and they don’t start useless drama with you. Other people may think “oh she’s sucha slut she always hangs out with guys”, but no. That doesn’t make you a slut, it’s because you’d rather be around people who are straight up with you rather than fake bitches. And they’ve rather spend their time having fun instead of wasting time gossiping and talking shit.
