Introvert Problems

22 Problems That Only Real Introverts Understand

If you're a true introvert, you're probably reading this from the confines of your favorite comfy chair, perhaps with a cup of hot tea and a good book next to you. We get that. As introverts, it's not that we can't interact with other people — in fact, some of us are quite good at it. It's that more often than not, we don't really want to. It's not you, it's us. Mostly. If you're a true introvert, you'll relate to these problems on so many levels — but don't worry, you're not alone! Actually, for you, that's probably a cause for worry . . .
