Screenshots from THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK.
I will admit that I may so buchan enjoying the book and more especially, this is about the first time I will witness someone using the F-word and I am not getting offended evnthough it is excessive used. It also seems to be the very first "big" book I have ever read... Though I am in-the-process-of, it it is most likely I will finish it.The writer seems to b a choleric that doesn't give a f*CK grin
He was right about many things though. One gets worried about an issue, one tends to be worried about the level of anxiety one is going through. Consequently, being worried about one's worries can lead to another worry on its own, and the chain reaction seems to be a stranger to oblivion, as it is never ending
Thanks for the link. The book seems a good one.

I have never seen a chat for introverts, although I have long wanted to find it. How hard it is when everyone asks why you are so quiet or sad and they don’t understand that I don’t like when all the attention is focused on me and don’t like big companies.

Funny enough, someone called me a "Sadist" last night and I tell you my brother, it's was very painful cuz the person actually put it straight to my face even though I tried to defend myself but yet I still found it very difficult digest why he called me such name.

I have been misjudged sooooooo many times and in most cases I couldn't defend myself cuz I don't even know what to say to make them understand me.

I'd like to understand something, under what context are y'all referred to as "sadist"? I fail to see the relationship between introversion and sadism.

May be, they don't react the way other people do when something bad happens or do not celebrate success with excitement. Also they might just be lost in their own world and hence give little attention to the plight of others.

It is quite a thin line between caring and indifference. Caring for others is sometimes exhausting and when such is not reciprocated, one may tend to go cold on relationships or feign indifference. I encourage them to access their mindset and work on their relationships.

That's improper use of words. Don't you think "insensitive" is more appropriate than using the word "sadist"? undecided

You are quite correct. Beyond the limit of vocabulary, people tend to go to the extreme in their choice of words.

there're some circumstances whereby someone continually hurting you but the day you react it might be a little thing that'll make you react on that day and you pour all your vexation because its not the first time to anger you.they call you saddist.

The past three weeks has not been easy, am currently learning electrical business( sales of electrical equipments). I have made alot of progress so far in terms of knowing the names of various goods, sizes and some prices, but as an introvert am still struggling with communication. Also I discovered that am now more relaxed with the environment unlike when I started which is a good thing.

@ Liamm . Do you have hard time starting a conversation with strangers and asking questions?

Yes, I only relate with people I'm familiar with.
I can travel from Benin to Lagos and won't even speak with the person sitting next to me.

I don't have or keep friends. My neighbours think I'm weird. The only 2 friends I have don't stay here in lag, they understand me so well. I could be indoor for an entire week without stepping out if I have no reasons to.
I find it so hard going into the bathroom, dress up and say I wanna visit someone. That's one hell of a daunting task. If you wanna invite me out, you gotta tell me days before in order to prepare myself psychologically for the outing. But my close friends know it's never a dull moment with me. I just love this lifestyle.

Went for my cousin's wedding some weeks back after struggling with the thought of giving an excuse to miss out (but i feared being reprimanded).


At d party i was so bored and had to find solace in my phone as i kept my self busy with it. I left even before the party ended... for my mind i was like.. i don buy asoebi and also mark register na.

Oh my! by the time i got home i was totally drained(with my head panging heavily). If my body was a cell phone it would definitely be at 2% or lower.

Had to spend the rest of the weekend sleeping like a wounded lion.

so, at 12:10am dater church service today. Someone looked at me and told me that I needed to go out more often.

That I am always pressing my phone or in front of my laptop by myself.

Maybe she is right.

I don't have any friends (seriously though) that I would go out with or people to be free with.

I'm just too rigid.

I need to make new friends

Lol Maybe when you have a lady in your life, things might change.

The pictures I take nowadays are courtesy of bae.

I think having pictures of yourself is cool though. I realised this during the #10YearChallenge, I couldn't participate because I don't really have pictures to use.

True, having a partner would make you take pictures because they'd ask for your pictures often. I don't take pictures too but when I do I upload them on my Google photos so it gets deleted from Gallery and when you scroll through my gallery it won't show and Google photos may not work without
data.
On the 10 Yr challenge thing I didn't even feel the urge to post any picture because I really hate my pictures being on the internet and anybody can get hold of it and people are coming up with the fact that the CIA created the challenge . Last year when I even posted a picture of myself on my WhatsApp status a lot of my contacts that hadn't chate up in long time messaged me because they were surprised. I'm not really geared up to to take pictures, I prefer to be the photographer in group photos

I am an introvert, and when i came across, i thought to share my story.
So with friends, i mean friends not acquintances or I am this crazy guy that talks too much, throughout my primary to my secondary i had only 3 friends.
I 0had stage fright earlier but am better at handling it now, it gets to me sometimes though, but i am always able to shake it off after few minutes.
I do have this immunity to what people say, so i leave everyone to his/her own opinion about me. My phone is my wife (permit me to use that) am always online, i play games alot, so my interactions with humans are limited.
Am currently in my final year in school but i have never been in a relationship, my friends do say if i leave d uni without getting one then they would know i have a problem, i dont have much issues interacting with girls except 4 d first time of course, but i just lack the will power mainly becus i have fears sharing my space with someone, and i havent met someone who would convince me that it is worth it.

People tend to admire extroverts more than introverts but of course we know the qualities of introverts that makes us special people, like being great thinkers, intelligence and so on.

Maybe I'm an ambivert because some periods I need my quiet time and some periods I start calling all my friends to hangout because I feel a little bit lonely.

But as an introvert, believe me there is nothing weird about you. Most of the greatest scientists and inventors in history were introverts, the greatest leaders are introverts - The current Man U manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is getting a lot of credit for changing the direction of the club but his greatest strength is that he's a great thinker, he's approachable, he's respected not feared, he's soft spoken and above all he's intelligent, he's also an introvert.

So my only advice is that there will come a time when you'll need to keep away the shyness for a minute and be bold, be confident, be influential, when that time comes don't fail to show people the great person that you really are.
