Girly Tumblr Themes

Hello! My name is Sunny (My name is really Sunny.) I may post some drawings I make....Not really sure why I have a Tumblr...Oh well. Thanks for visiting! No I'm not obsessed with mints.

The boy who sat behind me in English
for a whole semester,
didn’t know my name until the last day of the semester.

In biology class, part of our grade
depended on participation points.
That was the only class I raised my hand in.

My mother tells me that if I’m shy,
no one will like me.
That I must learn how to be social.
That I must not look so intimidating all the time.

My friend invites me out to hang out with her guy friends
and I do not talk almost the whole time.
One boy points at me and looks at my friend.
He asks, “Does she even talk?”
I smile politely and say “hi”.

Did it ever occur that I want to talk
just not to them?

My best friend and I are both introverts.
We used to spend lunches together
in silence because we know we don’t need to talk.

That’s why I chose this URL.
People have not learned the meaning of silence.
People have not learned that sometimes words aren’t enough.
People have not yet learned all the things you can communicate
without speaking, without making a single noise.

I have this problem where I can write well,
but I still stutter and trip over my words.
I always sound way too excited and awkward
all at the same time.

You’d think that I could just speak what I write,
but my fingers have been taught elegance
but my mouth has not.
I always end up accidentally swallowing my tied up tongue.
I go home every day with my lips cracked with regret
of all the things I should have said.

Have you ever thought that maybe
us introverts just choose our words and timing carefully?
That we’re not mean or less friendly than other people,
you just haven’t tried getting to know us yet.

You’re so quick to label us
that you don’t even try to understand us.

Maybe that girl sitting alone at lunch isn’t hated by everyone else,
maybe she isn’t a freak,
Maybe she likes having time to herself,
have you ever thought of that?

"You should talk more"

tyrion-skywalker:

1. Practicing conversations with people you’ll never talk to.

2. When you want to cut all ties to civilization but still be on the internet.

3. When your friend wants to invite more people over, and you don’t want to sound like a bad person by saying no.

4. When spending a heavenly weekend…

The bad part about being an introvert is that you feel like you get left out of everything but at the same time you’re not sure you wanted to go out and do the thing anyway … . .

psych-facts:

Myth #1 – Introverts don’t like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.

Myth #2 – Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite.

Myth #3 – Introverts are rude.
Introverts often don’t see a reason for beating around the bush with social pleasantries. They want everyone to just be real and honest. Unfortunately, this is not acceptable in most settings, so Introverts can feel a lot of pressure to fit in, which they find exhausting.

Myth #4 – Introverts don’t like people.
On the contrary, Introverts intensely value the few friends they have. They can count their close friends on one hand. If you are lucky enough for an introvert to consider you a friend, you probably have a loyal ally for life. Once you have earned their respect as being a person of substance, you’re in.

Myth #5 – Introverts don’t like to go out in public.
Nonsense. Introverts just don’t like to go out in public FOR AS LONG. They also like to avoid the complications that are involved in public activities. They take in data and experiences very quickly, and as a result, don’t need to be there for long to “get it.” They’re ready to go home, recharge, and process it all. In fact, recharging is absolutely crucial for Introverts.
