Being an Introvert in the 21st century

How is life for an introvert?

To be honest it is frightening. You have to socialize with people you barely know, you have to endure public awkwardness every time you go to the mall. It's like the whole world is hell for us every time we go out. But then comes our home, where there is no one except ourselves. Its the place where you sit relax watch Netflix and recharge your social battery

Being an introvert in the 21st century basically sucks. You have to deal with social anxiety literally every day! Making new friends, socializing with co-workers, classmates, all that stuff just basically sucks! But the worst part about being an introvert for me is not being able to express my feelings. That’s the reason why writing is like heaven for me. Most introverts love writing even though they suck at it because it helps them 

The other thing that helps me is music. Whenever I get socially anxious I listen to slow lo-fi kinds of music and boom It calms my nerves. Music also helps us ignore small talk with people we barely know and that’s is like heaven for us: being able to ignore small talk. 

Sometimes people tend to think that being an introvert is a bad thing. Or like introverts are depressed but we are not! Being an introvert is not a bad thing, hating social interaction doesn't make you weird. It's who you are!
