The internet is a place where we come to have our feelings hurt and to have our opinions questioned, but it’s also a place where we come to share and connect with new and old friends. I love this. I love that we can come to a place where any and all of us have people we know around us to turn to when we need to vent.
This is true. You can come to the internet with all the internet friends you want, but you can’t come to the internet with enough friends to make it worth it. You can have a large number of friends, but if your friends are all so different it can become boring and uninteresting to share even the little bits of connection that you have with them.
I can only speak for myself, but I’ve had people tell me I’m a weirdo and ask me why I’m the way I am. A lot of the time I can’t answer honestly, because I don’t really know myself. I do know that after I’ve been around for a while I don’t really care what anyone thinks of me because I don’t really care about anyone.
It seems you’re not alone in this. Some people get so wrapped up in the people they are talking to that they don’t realize that we are strangers. A lot of people are shy, and some of the ones that are shy are the ones that are most comfortable making fun of themselves.
I would like to start by saying that I’m a bit of an introvert at heart. I don’t really like talking to people because I don’t really like people. I feel like it makes me feel uncomfortable. I like to meet new people, but I don’t really like talking to them. I usually just stay in my room and write random things on my computer. Ive been thinking a lot about my personality lately, and it seems like I’m not the way I am.
I think most of us just like to make fun of ourselves a lot. I have a hard time understanding how we could like ourselves when we are so much more introverted than extroverted, but people are always trying to tell us how to be introverted. I think introverts are like you and me, they just like not to be noticed.
If you’re an introvert, I can’t say you’re alone. I’m one, and even though I was pretty introverted growing up, I’ve always been quite social. I’m not saying I’m perfect, but I do tend to be quite socially active.
Maybe it’s not you and me, but maybe it’s your neighbor. I’m not saying everyone is an introvert, but I’m one myself. My neighbor is a big extrovert who likes to entertain me. I don’t know if its social awkwardness, or a lack of privacy, or something else. It’s hard to say.
Though your story is kind, youve been all over the internet for hours.
A few things. First, you should never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever say that you are a little bit shy or nerdy, because you dont have a clue what to say when people ask you. It really really hurts the person you are speaking to.
