Some backstory

Quiet Silence by Massmo RelsigGrowing up, I always had teachers asking me why I was so quiet. They’d say, you need to break out of your shell, stop being so shy, why are you so introverted. As a result, I grew up thinking that being an introvert was a bad thing. It wasn’t until I took a personality test and came up as INFJ that I started looking into what that really meant. I read a couple of interesting books, did a ton of research on the internet and discovered that being introverted was actually normal. I felt so much relief, knowing that there wasn’t something wrong with me. And I’ve tried to share this information with the introverts I know, so that they can also know that they are perfectly normal as well. Anyways, this blog will be a collection of anecdotes, quotes and random things I think are kinda neat. So if you’re into that, feel free to keep watching. When did you find out you were an introvert? Or an extrovert?

    I’m an INFP! I’ve always known I was “shy” or an introvert and honestly I just figured out that nothing is wrong with me lol. It’s absolutely okay to be the way I am. I look forward to all of your posts!
