Finally I now understand the definition of being an introvert. I am outgoing, love to be with my close friends and love meeting new people. However, I get easily overwhelmed and need to be alone a lot. I’m also highly sensitive and tend to over think things which usually lead to confusion and hurt feelings. I never would have described myself as an introvert when I was younger, but I often felt like a fraud.
Thank you for helping me understand a little more about myself and my personality. I have always felt confused,torn and guilty about my feelings of “needing some space”. Now I know why and it’s not a bad thing.
