Scrolling down the tag introvert I’ve begun to notice that certain people are misusing the term introvert. Introversion is sometimes confused as shyness vice versa. An introvert enjoys time alone and gets emotionally drained after spending a lot of time with others. A shy person doesn’t necessarily want to be alone, but is afraid to interact with others.
It would be better for everyone if we all knew the difference.
“The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation”—Monica Drake- Clown Girl (via yeezy2016)
