Dear people-oriented people, there’s nothing to be ashamed about wanting and enjoying being around people especially if God designed you that way. Loving to be around people does not automatically mean you need them for your happiness. It’s okay to be the first person to break down walls. It’s okay to be the first one to smile and say “Hi!”, it’s okay to be the one who posts pictures on social media. It’s okay to be the first one to initiate gatherings. It’s okay to be the most energetic person from start to finish. You are not needy of attention. It’s just that God made you to have that natural inclination, energy, and ease in being with people. Embrace that gift. It’s okay to be loving and expressive of it. Stop forcing yourself to look “reserved” and “mysterious” just for the sake of not being labeled as “extrovert” (together with all the misleading ideas it carry)
Everybody wants to be alone every now and then. We, people-oriented people, all have those moments when we hate another person’s existence. I understand, and it’s okay even if people do not know that. It’s okay for people to not have any hint that we have those moments. Just over look that false perception of being thought of as the “dependent one.”
It’s not our problem.
Who cares. Just continue spreading smiles.
