When I am in a group of people I can be talkative, engaging and if I'm in the right mood I will ask you all the questions. I can also be really shy and sit in the corner of the room not wanting to engage at all. The newer term omnivert has been floating around lately and I feel like this is more my speed. This is someone that identifies as both an extrovert and an introvert.
My introvert side finds that being around others drains my battery, and by the end of the day I need to recharge my mind, body and soul in order to build connections again tomorrow. There are also other days where my extroversion is at the forefront and I feel confident and excited to lead and engage.
As a human most of the time we are all searching for connection. But when my rebellious side comes out I choose not to fit in on purpose.
When 13 Reasons Why hit Netflix it was the only thing people were talking about.
I didn't have any reason not be take part in conversations like these. And normally I would be all over this topic but for some weird reason I avoided the show completely so I wouldn't have to talk about it. When someone would bring up the show my go to easy answer of "nope sorry, haven't watched it" stops the conversation dead in its tracks.
If I'm at the store and I see someone I may know, I may avoid them. And not because I don't appreciate the person but simply because I really just don't want to talk to anyone.
It's funny because my word for 2018 was CONNECTION. I did a lot of work around building relationships and conversations with people but sometimes the most important connection I care about is the one I have with myself.
