5 Reasons Why You Should Get To Know Someone Who Is Introverted
Huffington Post

Being a certain way is a part of life. We all have certain personality traits that make us who we are, there are things that we like, and things that we don’t like, along with things that are smack dab in the middle that can be tolerated, but not too much. Being an introvert myself, I have come to the conclusion that it is OK to be the person who prefers to be inside, the person who is more shy than others, and the person who knows themselves enough to put themselves where they need to be. There is nothing wrong with being any other way, but many introverted people tend to feel left out of the crowd and I want to let them know that it’s OK to be this way, and that introverted people are great to get to know.

Without further ado, here are five reasons why you should get to know someone who’s introverted:

We can be just as loud and obnoxious as any other person, and we love to have fun.

I’m not joking. We seriously can be. In most cases, we who are introverted will start off as shy as we normally would be, but once you take the time to get to know us, you’ll start to tell us to shut up because we won’t stop talking. Oops.

We make the best friends.

This is a really cool thing. Due to having our guard up, once we meet great people and the guard gets let down, we become so close to people that they are more like family than actual friends. So if you become my friend, just wait, because you will also be making four new friends on the side. Welcome to the family!

We are detail oriented, and love to help those we are close to.

Need help with homework? No problem! We can help you fix whatever grammar mistakes you have made in your essays or we can help you come up with something to draw for your art project that is spectacular! It’s the little things we like, and details are one of them.

We won’t keep you out late.

We like to go out and have fun. So we can go out whenever and wherever, have some fun, but you best bet that we will have you back in time to watch “Grey’s Anatomy”. We like our alone time, and we like to be in at night, so we will take you home early to do the same.

We are great listeners.

Now don’t get me wrong, we like to talk too. But if you are ever in need of someone to just sit and listen to you vent about something going on in your life, an introverted person is just what you are looking for. You want to know what else? We can listen to you as long as you like, we will always have our ears and heart open to your feelings.

See? An introverted person isn’t too bad. I promise if you get to know someone who’s different it won’t make a difference. Just try it and make the best out of it. You never know, you could end up being best friends or even dating one day. Just take all of this into consideration before jumping the gun.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
