Hi. My name is Erica. I am a Hermit introvert.
You can call me vertically challenged, hermit, and boring and it will not phase my day. There was a time when it used to.
The reason I am writing this post is that I feel people do not understand us introverts and the sad part is they never will, not on a deeper, subatomic level anyway. We are a special group of people who are made to feel not so special or “square”.
I would like to venture a guess that most of us have social anxieties, have the water sign of Cancer, or are expert homemakers who would rather knit and bake than go out to bars, and clubs or trying to act normal in other people’s hell, er “social settings”.
This series of posts is definitely for you because just like you I prefer knitting, writing, anime, reading, baking, anime, yoga, Pilates, anime…you get it by now.
Here are a list of popular/famous people who are known introverts…
J.K. Rowling- author of Harry Potter Series
Dr. Seuss and plenty more, just go to Inc.com for the famous introvert list.
I was led to write this because just yesterday, we celebrated my husband’s birthday and to be honest, it was filled with fun and laughter (introverts laugh too), we danced the night away but when we got to the club part of the evening with the younger folks and I discovered I couldn’t do the “wobble” and bumped into someone, my “introvert alert” came in and I told my husband sadly, “I have to bounce. Sorry.”
I walked away from the dance floor.
Our Facebook pictures show a lovely tale of celebration and awesome food. I mean, it was a celebration and memorable…
I have been called Squidward(because of my scathing personality and ability to complain when going outdoors).
I have been called boring and hermit.
I’ve received strange looks and told I complain a lot, but when you take the shell off a crab, what do you expect? We love our homes!
So at this juncture, if you feel you are alone and that you are the only one who prefers to stay inside and watch movies than go to social settings you cannot control, you are not alone. Even famous introverts prefer to stay to themselves.
Alright, go chill, sip your tea, eat, bake or whatever until the next post.
Much love and hugs,
