Sometimes being an introvert feels kind of exhausting. Anyone else feel this way?

Maybe the cure is worshipping the great gawd Flying Spaghetti Monster 2morrow? What is the address and name of the place we can praise Holy Meatballs and Sacred Ramen ? @JordanG76 should be invited

Yes, I agree. Since my husband died in 2010, I've tended to isolate a bit too much. I'm generally fine with my own company, but sometimes it feels like hard work to try and keep myself reasonably distracted. I'm retired and I have too much time on my hands, but my physical condition is too unstable to commit to doing anything like volunteering, etc. because I never know how I'm going to be feeling from one hour to the next.

Yes, especially when there are many extroverts around stealing my precious energy.

Regularly!

The most exhausting thing for me is explaining myself to extroverts. It's like their lives revolve around other people and they assume that everyone else is that way too. Like, Introversion is such a foreign concept to them that they think it's fake.

I think the exhaustion comes from the anticipation of the stress of dealing with other people. Every time I'm invited to a party that I feel I have to attend, I work myself into a frenzy beforehand. Sometimes the reality isn't as bad as the anticipation

Everyday. As a teacher, I spend all day everyday with many, many people focused on me. Granted children are easier then others but it's still exhausting. I definitely need down time when I get home.

I don't... I'm comfortable with who I am right now...

Mostly when shamed into acting like someone I'm not.

Yes, sometimes. When I think I want to a little less introverted, or a little more extroverted, or wish I was just a bit more social. It doesn't happen often, most of the time I'm happy with who I am.

I was far more introverted until I began social dancing, which included taking group lessons. At first I was utterly freaked out, but I gradually became more comfortable being in contact with people, and many of the strangers I took beginning classes with eventually became friends as we progressed in our stages of learning. That's how I met my third husband.

That’s kind of indicative of being an introvert.

All the time, in new locations/groups.

Only when I'm forced to be around too many people, especially people I don't particularly like.
