"this quote must have been written by an extrovert. That isn’t meant as an insult, just a very likely guess. Introverts (myself included), love people, but we love our solitude too. I love people abundantly, but i definitely would not enjoy spending a ton of time with them, not because they are bad, but because it gets tiring. I like to sit and think and process, and daydream, and pray, and study different things, its hard to do that while keeping other people company. Some people thrive on constant companionship, and even have difficulty focusing on things if they are alone, and those are extroverts, and likely, they simply can’t understand how much introverts love their solitude (just like as an introvert, it boggles my mind how some people can constantly be around others and always seem to want more company). Neither is wrong, they are just different. It makes me wonder if this man is more introverted, but has been forced most of his life to live more extroverted, i was for years and i was constantly burnt out. Now that i get to take life more at my own pace and plan for my solo time, i couldn’t be happier, and i couldn’t enjoy the company i have (when i do have it) more than i do now."

"There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time."
