    I'm Afraid I Won't Be Able To Make It In This Society Because I'm So Quiet

    I feel like my extreme introversion has really been a detriment to me in terms of succeeding in life. Like I keep reading all this stuff about how everything is about making connections with people and getting people to like you so that they'll hire you, or want to work with you...

    Being introduced to my boyfriends family in the beginning was hard because they didn't get my quietness. It wasn't because I didn't like them, but I can sit there ,think, and just listen. They don't mention it anymore, but will joke when I'm introduced to someone new by saying...

    Spacing Out

    If this isn't the perfect group for me then I don't know what is. I always do this. There are times when I know I should say something but I don't. I just sit there thinking about what I should say and observing the people around me. I take a lot in and just allow it all to soak...

    I spend most of my time thinking.

    I like to listen, observe and think. And I hardly speak or chat cause I never know what to say. I literally never have anything to say and never have anything interesting to talk about. People think it's weird but I can't help it when ever I try to start or get involved in a...
