BUT WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL INTROVERTS??
There is a whole category of people that the internet never mentions...
Social introverts are NOT the "typical introverts" who are always going on about wanting to be alone.
They are not extroverts either.
Social introverts crave meaningful, intense, close 1-on-1 connections more than anything else.
They crave the kind of friendship that our society rarely acknowledges exists.
When they meet a potential friend, they want a REAL connection... an INTENSE connection... a CLOSE connection... an HONEST connection...
They want to write each other often... and talk often... and really connect, the way that romantic partners are allowed to do...
I felt so much shame for wanting and having the kind of friendships that our society doesn't even acknowledge exists.
My shame was so great. It was one of the main forces that pushed me into crippling social anxiety when I was 21.
However 5 years later, it was by EMBRACING my social introversion that I was able to set myself free.
Yes, I CRAVE close friendship... but this also makes me a GREAT close friend...
And THIS became one of my biggest strengths.
Are you a social introvert?
It is possible to defy societal norms... overcome social anxiety... and find the kind of connection and friendships you desire.
