An introvert is someone who is more concerned with their thoughts and inner feelings than with the outside world or social relations. Basically, introverts are people who like to keep to themselves.
You see that? You see how Yaya looks? I mean apart from that killer afro and glowing skin, you see how she’s smiling? Yup, that’s serenity.
Being an introvert almost always goes like this. Your friends (what little you have) will hit you up for a night out on the town. You’ll pick up and be wishy-washy about whether you are available. And then at the eleventh hour you just send a text like “Oh, I’m sorry. Something urgent has just come up. Can’t make it. Rain check.”
You know the only thing urgent is your need to wrap yourself with the covers and just binge the latest season of Money Heist.
Being an introvert has it’s perks. You mind your business. You have peace of mind. And your skin, hopefully, starts to glow.
But sometimes being an introvert gets you some flack. Some people assume your lack of communication is as a result of you being conceited. That’s not to say some people aren’t just plain toxic with how they treat people. However, some introverts just want to be left…alone
Twitter user, @salemkinging took to the micro blogging site to ask introverts what most people failed to know about them
What’s one thing introverts wish everybody knew?

And as things on the internet go he got himself some answers. Here are 10 things introverts wish everybody else knew.
1. Not a fire starter.
We are good conversationalists but not conversation starters when we meet someone new.

2. An introvert’s PSA List
1. I need time to myself occasionally. You didn't do anything wrong. If you're a busy person, you may not even notice.
2. When you see me stay home for a whole month, don't try to get me out.
I'm not bored.
I'm rebuilding the energy I used to go out to party 6months ago.

3. Minding your business.
I’m not a snob, I’m not proud, I genuinely just don’t have anything or know what to say to you

4. Just for laughs.
I’m not angry. I’ll say something when I have something to say. I’ll laugh and giggle because that’s all I can contribute at the time.

5. The thought process.
If I have issue with you I argue for and against in my head to know if it’s worth stressing myself to say it out.
Actually I also discuss future or previous conversations right inside my skull.
I’m a good at overthinking and guess what it doesn’t hurt me

6. Look within.
Our demeanors are NOT representative of our personalities!
Most of us are free-spirited softies on the inside.😁

7. It’s the thought that counts.
I may not always call you or check up all the time, but I care.

8. On my own but not alone.
I want time to be alone on a daily basis and that doesn't mean I'm bored or I'm boring.

9. Once heard. Twice shy.
It takes a lot of effort to say something twice. If you didn’t hear me the first time I’ll probably just move on.

10. Someone has found their kith.
I thought I was alone in this world, but I found my comrades in this thread HALLELUJAH!!! 😭😭😭 pic.twitter.com/h4A2cBmnMI
