I’m an introvert… by choice.

But like Prince T’Challa, when the need arises, I can morph into my superhero suit and become the Social Butterfly!

I’m sure this stems from being born into a super huge family (Mom had 16 siblings, Daddy had eleven, and I grew up with eight of my own) and having to “get along” at numerous family gatherings.

The only person who enjoyed my company more than me is gone, and even before he died, except for meals, we could go 2-3 days without talking, each engaged in our own pursuits. Just sharing the same space was enough.

The pandemic and lock-down life has done a number on many. Folks have posted the walls are closing in on them, they’re sick of their families, and they need to get OUT and be around people.

Self-isolating is not a problem for me. I don’t suffer from cabin fever or feel like I’m drowning in loneliness. If I need to go out, I do, but if there’s a way I can avoid it, I do that too.

Marquessa said in her post, she’d found people exhausting. I have to agree. But I also find them annoying… in a casual, friendly, please-do-not-talk-to-me kind of way. 😀 😀 😀

    I think I’m the same. I will socialise when I absolutely must. I’m quite happy with my own company but I also don’t mind people around me as long as they’re not bugging me 24-7 😀

    Yeah, I’m convinced we were sisters in another life. I’ve traveled with a friend or two and that feeling of hanging out but not needing to fill every minute with words was awesome. And I do find “people” annoying too…I just didn’t want to actually come right out and say it. Hahaha 🙂
