It’s not easy being an introvert living in an extroverted world. Our schools praise the students who think quickly, work well collaboratively, and raise their hands often. Our workplaces promote the employees who not only get the job done but also make friends while they do it. And, when it comes to the social scene, the loudest person with the most friends always seems to win.
That’s why the hashtag #introvertproblems exists on Twitter. It’s a therapeutic collection of the struggles introverts face on a regular basis. Here are our 21 favorite tweets, which are sure to make introverts say, “Yep, exactly.” Can you relate?
Human: How long till you’re ready to go?
Me: 5mins to get dressed
Me: and 4 to 5 years to psych myself up for small talk.#introvertproblems
