I'm Not SHY!

The other day, stop me if I've blogged about this before - but the other day my husband was arguing with me about the fact that he didn't think I was introverted.  I've kind of always thought of myself as pretty introverted.....he was all like "well you are a photographer, and you go meet people all the time and talk to them, you're not shy at all....".......I am not a young doe ya'll....I am in fact a seasoned woman with lots and lots of experience living in my own skin...and I've learned a thing or two about talking to people, and trying to appear some what normal...though I don't often success - just ask the people I photography hahaha....

So what does introverted mean?  Well according to google it means: shy, reserved, withdrawn, reticent, different, retiring, quiet, introspective, inward-looking, self-absorbed, contemplative, thoughtful, meditative, reflective......well hell that's me in a nut shell, minus the self-absorbed part - right?  I'm not, right?  Well, maybe a little...

After careful and thoughtful thinking, and talking....I was able to get a "well maybe you are a little introverted" out of him....what I am hoping is-it will help him realize why I refused to do some things, or complain about having to do some things, mainly social things - not not limited to that.

It's not that I would just rather be at home all the time, it's that I would rather just be around my small circle or alone most of the time.  I enjoy being alone.  I don't want to live on an island alone or be totally isolated but I do enjoy the time I get to myself, and I long for it.  I long for the quiet, time I can reflect and just do whatever the hell I want to do.

Ahhh.....ain't it great?
