Why do I have to be so introverted? I wish I could change this about myself. I am so introverted that I don't hear people when they talk to me. I am so deep in thought all the time that I am unaware of my surroundings. Yeah it's normal to get that way sometimes when you have alot on your mind. But this is all the time. It seems to be automatic. When someone starts talking to me it's like I set up autopilot and go sit down in the back somewhere until they're finished. Am I really that uninterested in what others have to say? Maybe I'm just burned out at my job. Then again I notice I do that at home too. I am so busy thinking and tinkering around inside my own head that I'm oblivious to everything else. I wish it were not this bad. Just imagine how uninteresting I must be. It must seem as if I have the personality of a soap dish.
