honestly if ur an introvert ur probably better off befriending some extroverts bc having a whole squad of introverts is fine at first but eventually you end up never doing anything with them ever especially after you finish school bc ur all fine being loners and low maintenance friends that just tag each other in memes and snapchat each other which is nice but sometimes i wanna leave my house instead of binge watching spongebob squarepants you need balance in ur squad you need to have people who are gonna motivate the squad to be social 

How to Care for an Extrovert

1. Respect their need for independence and autonomy.

2. Praise and compliment them in front of others.

3. Affirm their passion and enthusiasm.

4. Encourage them to talk things through as a way of processing problems and challenges.

5. Encourage and affirm their spontaneity. Surprise them from time to time.

6. Recognise that they’re likely to be super busy and, possibly, over committed, too.

7. Allow them to try new things right away, while their enthusiasm is high.

8. Give them lots of choices and options.

9. Demonstrate your love and affection. Tell them and show them how much they mean to you.

10. Give them the opportunity to shine.

The extrovert struggle

Feeling so energized after spending the whole week with people, doing things and having fun.
Then you spend maybe half a day alone in your room and you’re stuck in deep, melancholic thoughts:
“Loneliness is all I have ever known. No friends, no one to be with. A life without boundaries but also without any affection. It’s a difficult path but one day I will get used to it. I will embrace this solitude as the ground my entire being is based on and make this pain the pinnacle of my dull existence.”

Being an extrovert is not all sunshine and rainbows

like the internet makes it out to be.

Being an extrovert means that whenever I am alone, I feel like crap. I feel so lonely that it is extremely hard to be productive. All I can focus on is the crappy feeling.

Sometimes, if I must be alone, watching TV makes me forget the crappy feeling, that is until the credits music plays and I feel a sinking dread at the realization of how alone I am.

Feeling lonely can make me feel guilty and/or inadequate for no apparent reason.

When I’m with people, the crappy feeling instantly goes away. Even if I’m just in a cafe doing homework instead of my room at home. I feel ambitious and productive again.

This does not mean that I don’t need any time to myself. But I would prefer my time to myself to be me alone in my room with someone else in the next room.

Introverts get their energy from being alone.

Extroverts get their energy from being with people. And as an extrovert, I drain from being alone. And it sucks.

Thank you for listening to this rant.

things introverts do that annoy the shit out of extroverts

(even though we’d never tell you because we don’t want to hurt your feelings)

in response to this post 

1. making us feel guilty for having other friends. we can only hang out and watch netflixs with you so much before we get bored. sometimes we want large groups, loud parties, new people, and we hate it when you keep us pigeonholed.
2. always say no when we ask you to hang out, then get mad if we’re busy when you finally want to chill. ???? our lives don’t revolve around your moods. chill.
3. make us feel ashamed for being ourselves. i don’t think before i speak all the time, sometimes i’m loud, whatever. i’m not embarrassed by who i am, and if you are we shouldn’t be hanging out. i don’t make you feel guilty for not always speaking up, don’t make me feel guilty for talking too much.
4. volunteer us to do things without asking. uh, no. we don’t want to call your optometrist for you because phone calls make you nervous. stop treating us like social slaves.
5. passive-aggressiveness. we can’t fix a problem if you won’t tell us what we did wrong in the first place. somehow introverts still haven’t picked up on this tho.
6. typecast us. there are millions of extroverts and every single one of us is different. we’re not all party-obsessed, socially perfect souls who can make friends anywhere. we have anxiety too, sometimes we’re uncomfortable in social spaces, we also want our alone time on occasion as well. we’re not the stereotypes you assigned us. 
7. refusing to come out and party and then getting offended the next day when you see how much fun everyone had on instagram/facebook/tumblr/etc. we TOLD you you’d have fun if you came and YOU decided not to, how is that our fault????
8. being unnecessarily mean to our friends. we get that you don’t generally enjoy meeting new people, that’s fine. but if we stop to talk to a friend and you’re rude to them because you “hate small talk” or some other trivial reason or WORSE immediately talking shit about them after they leave when they did nothing wrong you’ll only upset us.
9. assuming you’re smarter than us. it’s ignorant to assume that people who talk a lot are somehow less intelligent than people who don’t. we just have too many thoughts to keep bottled up, that’s all.
