I Am Quiet During Social Situations

Since high school I’ve tended to be pretty quiet unless around people I know. I’m pretty introverted and a little shy I guess. It took me years of wanting to fit in more and be more social before I finally understood that honestly I hate being around 99.99% of people. There are very very few people who I can honestly stand being around. I just find most people to be boring, basic, ununique, uninteresting, and very cliquish. Like most people just blend together to me because everyone wants to fit in so they act like the rest of society. I’ve always just kinda been my own person. I do what I want when I want. Say what I want and I’m not scared of expressing how I really feel about things (most of the time) which I think is a good trait since I’ll never bs people but I can see why people might be put off by it. I get judged quite often by people because I like to be by myself a lot or will go out and do stuff by myself. I’ve just never been the type of person to be surrounded with people all the time. It’s very tiresome to have to be around people to me and I don’t think people understand that. I don’t know, I just get annoyed by people so this is me venting 😂 does anyone relate?

Yes. I’m a sociable introvert, but must limit my interactions and socializing, or it drains my mental and emotional energy.

I think it’s good that you know yourself so well at a young age. At your age, and older, I was still trying to fit in. Now I couldn’t care less about fitting in.

Good luck to you.

Just be you :) and if someone calls along and pulls you out of your shell to change your world, let her/him. It can make a good story.
