i hope that there is a time in my life to do this. travel with friends, have fun, yet still be mature, and write down our adventures and stories and not feel that it is tiresome or annoying. be with people who you really love, go to amazing places you have dreamed about, and shop for exotic antiques or the newest styles. and to just be able to love life in the moment and live.
I wonder how many stranger’s stories we make it into? You know, maybe someone saw you in passing and told their friends about how pretty the girl in the lavender sweater was. Or maybe they overheard you say a joke and repeated it to their friend, confessing that they heard it from some guy at the store.
I think about this all the time
Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.
