Outside The Norm
A bit of a loner
How we are perceived, by others, may sometimes cause self issues. If one does not understand themselves.
I have come to the conclusion that I enjoy a bit of reclusiveness, as I am unlike most folks. Truly I am ok with that. As I tend to dare to be different , as long as I remain myself..
I have had the thought run thru my mind on more than one occasion, there could indeed be some merit to the Zodiac signs, myself, a Gemini, could this be why I do not really require to socialize in the normal sense of the word? I have my "twin" to give me someone else's perspective on any subject matter!
You have heard the old saying, "The more I am around people,the better I like my dog." I find the more I go to social events, or interact with loads of people, the more I do enjoy my solitude..
People say I am a hermit, LOL, I think I could be, maybe not totally, as On occasions I like company. But only at my discretion. My small circle of friends know not to just drop in.
Still, I am told I am quite the hostess, that people are quite at home when they visit. Also I seem to be capable of placing most people at ease, so that they will normally tell me their inner most feelings, and secrets.. Odd isn't it.
When people meet me, they seem to think I am quite outgoing, a social butterfly, Nothing could be farther from the truth. As I am quite introverted, I rarely, if ever go to parties,and such. Big crowds I shy away from. Yet, I am quite capable of standing in front of hundreds of people, giving motovational speeches,or stand up comedy!
If this is an oxy moron, does it make me an anomaly? NO, I'm certain it just makes me, who I am.
