Just a few days back I re blogged a post on being introvert and extrovert and this brought something to my attention. A friend of mine read that and stated me to be an extrovert. Well, had he known me a few years back his opinion would have been completely different.

This friend he is the most, sweetest and the humblest person that I have known recently and the fact that he called himself to be an introvert and me to be an extrovert was just his perception. For me I am yet a person trying to evolve. A few years back I was a person who was silly and shy, who would not talk to anyone unless she knows them personally, who would rather sit home the entire day rather than party outside, who would just say a ‘hi’ and sit back.

I cannot say I have changed completely but I can accept the fact that I have tried to be a better person, be it as an introvert or an extrovert. And the fact that someone thinks I am an extrovert trying to achieve something; that I am somebody, a person capable of doing something made my day.

I have just one thing to say, “I was trying, I am trying and I will keep trying till I do not lose faith and people like him keep encouraging me to be the person I am and the person I should be.”

Well, thanks to this person for being one of the most amazing guys I have ever known. I know he is going to read this and ping me instantly on whatsapp, so here I am waiting for your message Mr. Harsh Bhayani.

Big cheers to our friendship.

  1. You may already know this. Some suggest that the introvert is defined not by the presence or absence of social skills but by the manner in which they replenish their energy. For instance, I am now and always have been an introvert. The difference now (at age 63) is that I am much more willing to engage in social behaviors than I was as a shy youth BUT I replenish my energy the same way – through long and happy periods of retreat from social behavior, from quiet time alone that I use to process whatever I learned from the day and from my interactions. The extroverts replenish themselves through the interactions that exhaust the introvert. They can go all day and all night until their diurnal clock runs out. I hope this is a useful measurement of the difference. Kind regards, MSOC

    1. True.. Might partially agree on this given the fact that being an introvert and extrovert based on situations of life, might strike a perfect balance. But but but – I do fully agree on the fact that being an introvert forever, after finishing with all the musings of being an extrovert; does help in NOT burning out soon out of the real life. Forever extroverts do lose focus on career first, from where the dwindle begins. Thnx for sharing this Moushmi! 🙂

  2. Haha!! Beautifully written. I am a complete introvert then and cannot help it because it’s like going out of my sphere and then maybe for some I overreact. So it better to be who you actually are. You are making a great progress and becoming social is a stepping stone. Go for it. Cheerio!


Your perception holds importance for me.
