It’s like being the combination of two different people: the extrovert and the homebody, the cheerleader and the girl next door. And you got blessed with both. When you have the mind of an extrovert you crave being around people all the time, you can chat up just about anyone, and you light up a room the second you walk in it. And when that is paired with a heart of a homebody, you become a beautiful mystery. You’re self-sufficient, able to enjoy every second you spend alone without feeling lonely, you’re cozy and sweet. But sometimes the struggles of having the mind of an extrovert and the heart of a homebody get overlooked.
Everyone thinks you’re an introvert. Nope. Not true. You may not mind being by yourself, but it certainly doesn’t mean you can’t talk to an absolute stranger and walk away with a new friend.
But you don’t let many people in completely. You built these walls around yourself to keep you fiercely independent, and have only let a few people take down some of them.
You don’t know how to ask for help—or at least, you don’t like to. You will try to fix everything before you call anybody. Help is a last-ditch effort. You’re a very “I got this” person.
You're two different people—the girl who won’t talk to you and the girl you can’t get to stop talking once you actually get to know her.
You found a routine that doesn’t open up many doors to meet new people. You love staying home but can’t shake that feeling in your gut that you’re missing out on something. But once you push yourself to go out, you have no issues making new friends.
Sometimes you have a hard time getting your people-fix. You make plans to go out with your friends, get super excited about seeing them but when it comes down to it, you can’t seem to change out of your sweats.
And some days you can’t carry a conversation for shit. Small talk is the enemy, yet it’s exactly what you need to get that people-fix you’ve been craving. You go to the coffee shop and can’t seem to muster up any words to the barista like you usually do.
You can look a little unapproachable at times. You’re just so comfortable being by yourself you’ve forgotten how to let other people know you want them around. Might as well get it tattooed on your forehead at this rate.
You go places solo only to get there and realize you could have invited someone to come with you. Yes, you can grocery shop and get coffee alone, but sometimes having a friend is great. You have the habit of realizing this too late.
You are stubborn as hell. If there is something you straight up don’t want to do, there’s close to no convincing you.
Being the girl with a mind of an extrovert and the heart of a homebody is a unique quality that you should feel lucky to have. You get the best of both worlds, so do what you can to make yourself happy. God knows you deserve it.
