Most of the time, I'm proud to call myself an introvert. I have my hobbies and my likes and dislikes and I love solo activities. There's nothing wring with not being a party animal or social butterfly. However there are certain times when I realise my tendency to stay within myself has negative effects. Tonight I went to a formal and event and I hugely enjoyed getting all dressed up and looking good, loved the food bit and the music....but I realised I don't really connect with anyone and circulate very much to the point where at times I just felt like I didn't belong. I've never felt like this before and it's made me realise that whilst there's nothing wrong with being an introvert, I can't isolate myself. I always related to a quote I saw that said 'alone but not lonely' but tonight I did actually feel kinda lonely. Any introverts every experience this?
