Introverts who get nervous in social situations will relate to these cartoons

From Sarah's Scribbles

Life isn’t easy if you’re an introvert who gets nervous around other people or has social anxiety. Every day, at school, on the job or with friends, there’s a chance you’ll want to slip quietly away from the group and find comfort behind the closed door of your bedroom. Sarah Andersen, creator of the web comic Sarah’s Scribbles, understands that feeling. Although not all her cartoons are about introversion or social anxiety, many of them hit home. You can find more of her comics on her TumblrTwitter and Facebook pages. Her series is also syndicated on Universal Uclick.

Here are some of our favorites:

1. When it doesn’t take long to get your fill of socializing.
