Am I Anti-Social? No, I'm Not Anti-Social; I'm Just Not A People's Person
I'm the type of person you'll find on a friday night, writing stories or reading books. Perhaps even chatting online. No, it's not that i don't have a party to go to, i simply don't want to go.
I love my friends and family and spend time with them. My mother complains i never go out and mix with society. So what if i don't want to go to an alcohol-fuelled party? Would you prefer that i stay in and enjoy myself or go out, get drunk or get high and do something i'll regret later?
Who cares if i think The Sims and Need For Speed are the best games to play on a friday night? Or that i would rather settle down and watch a movie by myself, with friends or family? I care. And you know what else? I couldn't be bothered what you think. You can believe i'm anti-social. You can believe i'm a loner. But frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.
Introverts like me have a place in society. We're the ones who research things, predict outcomes in experiments and do the "behind the scenes" work. You extroverts are the ones that tell the world your achievements and brag about them. Introverts are quiet, calm and relaxed. We don't like parties or social gatherings. We prefer to stay at home and read or write or play computer games.
I am not going to conform to society's wish and be "loud and proud." Instead, i am going to be myself because there is no one out there in the world quite like me and never will be! So i am not anti social, i just don't like people.
