Introverts Unite!


I have always liked being in my own company. I spend too much time inside on the internet, I get too attached to TV show characters and I love going shopping by myself. It's not that I am anti-social, I have friends who I absolutely love, but I know that I am an introverted person. 

When I was younger, I thought that this was a bad thing. Especially at school when everyone would go out and I would be quite happy staying in. I would turn down opportunities to go out, and soon I found that I was stopped being invited to things because they assumed that I wouldn't go. I felt that even some of my best friends didn't really understand, and that they still don't. 

I thought that at university I would make myself become this person who would suddenly love going clubbing and wouldn't feel nervous about meeting new people - of course, this didn't happen. I lived with some very big characters who were the complete opposite of me. They thrived off other people's company and hated being alone. I soon realised that I was never going to be that person. I have grown to love my 'introvertedness' and you all should too! 


After some persuasion at university, I do go out a lot more than I did and actually have a good time. However, my friends know that I need some time to recharge and don't judge me for the maybe too many lazy days that I spend in my room just watching youtube videos and reading blogs. They understand that this makes me happy. It's just the little things.

So.. Introverts Unite! There is nothing wrong loving night ins watching another re-run of Bridget Jones in your pyjamas whilst scrolling endlessly through Tumblr. 

(Plus check out this buzzfeed on what all introverts love - I totally agree with all of them!)



  1. I'm definitely an introvert. I enjoy my alone time but I do feel left out if I'm not invited to things which I think my friends struggle to understand!

  2. I completely understand! I'm going into my final year at uni and I loveee my own company whereas my friends love being with each other 24/7 - I just can't hack it! Give me my own company in my own home with a cuppa, a book and netflix over anything, any day!

    1. Thank you! Am so glad I am not the only one :D xx

  3. I know exactly how you feel! Sometimes I need a lazy day and sometimes I just need to get out.
    This summer I have been out like once - Netflix, blogging and a cup of coffee is just too good.
    That buzz feed link was hilarious - thanks for sharing it! Number 17 with Darcy had me cracking up!
