The Trouble with being an Introvert…or maybe it’s just me.

We don’t talk a lot. We listen, observe, and never insert ourselves into conversations. We stay on the fringes. Lurking. Like vampires, we have to be invited in. And no. We don’t bite, drink blood or any other creepy shit like that. In school, we would have been labeled, GASP, nerds. Bookworms. Easy prey.  Our Saturdays were spent getting lost among the stacks at the local library. Reading was a temporary escape from the world's harsh judgments.

We've never been square pegs trying to fit into round holes. Why would we ever want to do that? No. We are different, creative beings, like diamonds we each sparkle and shine in our own subtle unique way.

A word of caution. Only ask our opinion, if you are truly seeking an honest answer.

Finally, as with most human being, what we desire most is to be liked, to love, to be loved, and most of all accepted just the way we are.
