4 Things An Introvert Wants You To Know
Life Hack

1. I Am More Than "Quiet."

I am intensely focused on what I am doing. Because I am so intently focused, I am very passionate about the work I perform and the hobbies I participate in. I am observing things going on around me and within me. I notice how people are acting, I notice when things change around me; maybe more so than others do. I am very aware of my feelings circulating within me, and I deeply ponder them to find their meaning.

2. I Am One of the BEST Friend You Will Ever Have.

I do not let people into my life easily, and when it comes to choosing friends I am very particular. I do not become friends with you simply because of your likes or dislikes, the way you dress, or any surface level quality. I have carefully chosen you because I see deeper qualities within you that draw me to want a friendship with you. If I choose you as a friend, I will be unconditionally supportive in all you do and be fiercely loyal in our friendship.

3. I Know How To Listen.

If you need someone to vent to that won't interrupt what you're saying, I'm your person. I will hear you out. I will let you go from start to finish, no matter how long it may take. If you don't want me to respond, I don't have to respond. But if I do give you advice, know that my response has been thoughtfully considered, and I have thought about the topic from every angle and not just my point of view. So maybe it would smart to listen what an introvert has to say.

4. I Am Okay With Me.

As stated before, I am always observing, processing, and deeply understanding what is going on around me and within me. Because of this, odds are I will know myself and I will understand myself better than anyone else. Just because I am not as outgoing as some people doesn't mean I need someone to change how I am. Don't try to force me out of my "comfort zone." I like me. I understand who I am as a person on a different level than most, and I like who I am. So as an introvert, I need you to accept me, not change me.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
