Got Plans For New Year’s Eve?
My plans are to sit at home and watch the ball drop on TV, as is the plan for introverts the world over.
It’s not that we want to sit at home because we don’t, we want to go out and have fun but then the moment we step foot into that crowded place we remember why we don’t go out.
It’s too loud, there’s too many people and we start getting bombarded with questions wanting to know what’s wrong, why are you so quiet? It’s an awful experience that we would just rather avoid at all costs.
Now going shopping and things like that is quite a bit different because there’s no socialising involved. We shop and there’s no talking and its quite enjoyable for some of us, until we run into someone we know and then we’re expected to hold a conversation. I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m bad with names and remembering things so it gets awkward real quick and I just want to disappear.
Sometimes I get lucky and they know me really well and want to avoid me just as much as I want to avoid them. That’s because of my resting bitch face and the fact that I can come off as a bitch. I look like I’m always in a bad mood even when I’m not and it makes me very unapproachable. It’s fine with me though considering I can’t hold a conversation and also tend to talk a lot and repeat a lot when I’m nervous. It’s a horrible problem that I need to work on, only problem is I don’t even realize I’m doing it.
I also am not good at socialising because I have a bad habit of saying whatever is on my mind and that can be something rude or inconsiderate which leads people to not want to be around me, but like I said I probably don’t want to be around them either so it’s a win win situation for both of us.
So I guess I seriously need to work on my people skills.
Wish me luck on that because I’m going to need it.
So anyway let me know about your plans for tonight in the comments.
