Why are Quiet People Weird? Part 2
Remember my first post on the subject?
A second post stems from my grandma asking me when I got so quiet. Apparently I was much more chatty when I was younger. Who isn't though? Who isn't a chatterbox when they're five? To be honest, I don't remember ever being really talkative. I've always been more introverted and I'm okay with that.
Is there anyone else out there that has a love/hate relationship with thinking? I've always been the kind of person that thinks things through, often too much, and has many daydreams and dreams. A lot of times my world revolves inside my head. This makes me think about my favorite show "Scrubs" and how often the main character, JD drifts off into his own crazy fantasies. While mine are no where near his, mine are more realistic...it still makes me giggle. I often daydream about the past or the future, wondering where my life will turn out. This is a great thing to do when you're bored in class! ;)
But is it really a bad thing? Some people seem to think so. But I say no way. Thinkers, introverts, shy people...like me, I don't think they are weird at all. Sometimes you need people to think things through, think about things before they speak, and simply daydream. If we lived in a world full of chatterboxes...how crazy would that get? Sometimes there needs to be a listener and I am more than happy to be one.
The downside of being an introvert and an avid thinker...over-thinking. I've been known to ruin relationships or chances by over-thinking. I think things through TOO much instead of simply taking chances and living life. So here's to introverts, the ones who listen, who take the time to think about things before jumping into them, who just want to have alone time with a good book. I'm one of you! :)
