Okay, okay, I don't really hate all people. :P But is being shy and an introvert really all that bad?
While watching the first episode of this season's "America's Next Top Model", I discovered something I know quite well. That shy or quiet girls are considered "weird". One girl on the show who didn't talk as much as the other girls is constantly questioned by the others as to "what her problem is" or "why doesn't she talk as much?" or "why is she so weird?". Being often quiet myself, I was annoyed.
When did society deem introverts less worthy than extroverts? Aren't people who talk too much more annoying that those who like to think rather than say all their thoughts out loud?
I sometimes prefer silence. I will gladly tell you I hate small talk. When I go get my nails done, I don't really want to talk meaninglessly to the nail technician. Maybe you'll see it as unfriendly, but I see it as real. Sometimes I just prefer to relax and not have to worry about talking to someone I don't really care to talk to. Perhaps it is also my love for words that I don't like to waste them. I don't know but I wish I wasn't thought of as weird because I prefer silence or don't know what to say or just want to listen.
If I know you and like you, I'll talk. I talk to you all in my blog. Sometimes if I am quiet it doesn't mean I don't like you, it just means I would rather listen. So next time, if you are blessed with the gift of gab, don't judge those who aren't.
