Pretend You Aren't an Introvert (Sometimes)

This is something I need to keep reminding myself. As a fairly extreme introvert, I'm perfectly happy spending an evening in. Or every evening in. But nothing ever changes if I always do the same thing.

I do need to meet people. The human experience includes friends, relationships, colleagues, and acquaintances. I can't advance my own life if I live in my little cell of a room.

So this is just me, saying I will get out more. I will go to concerts, or conferences, or little parties (I don't like the big ones). I will make an attempt to talk to people and not just stand in the corner (except maybe at the concerts where talking is nearly impossible).

I will not become a hermit.
