I sometimes wish, I truly wish,
That I was rather loud
And loved attention, company,
And being in a crowd
I wish that those who saw me were
Excited and impressed
Instead of seeing someone they
Can tolerate, at best

Hear this. Just an hour or two ago, I had to explain to my four-year-old son why I do not like parties. The idea was unfathomable to him.
I live in a mixed family – 3 introverts and 4 extroverts. I know that of which you speak.

From one introvert to another…I feel your pain.
We introverts have to stick together.
I’m an introvert, but I fake it at work and I’m actually successful at it….
You and me both. I’m considered a “life of the party” type at work. Which I am most certainly not.

it’s hard living in an extroverted world.
I would talk with touch and body language or maybe write. i pretend to be extroverted and bubbly because that is what our society demands-i hate it. I would love a silent world of understanding and acceptance.
Angel in the dust
Sometimes I feel the same way too and this was really refreshing to read!
