Re: Random Thoughts Of An Introvert
I was thinking along those same lines earlier today. I consider myself to be introverted. In most social situations I tend to lay low at first until I get a handle on the dynamics. A good example is that teach, sometimes I have classrooms of up to 100 people. I actually enjoy speaking in front of that many strange people. OTOH, I am more uncomfortable meeting a single strange person. Post divorce, this is one of those "fears" I have had to face head on. I seem to be getting better at it the more I do it though.
BTW I agree about Halloween (or most theme) parties. Especially for adults, who seem to need such an event to allow their alter egos to come out. Since I tend to be who I am all of the time, I don't have an alter ego that needs allowed out. I guess seeing others do it, makes me feel sad for them.
At the center of every moMEnt of my life is ME!
