Introversion and Extroversion

Back when I started this blog in 2011, and for several years before then, I always thought of myself as an introvert. I found myself going to social events very often, but I often found this tiring. I’d be going to three or more social events a week and I’d sometimes try and think of excuses to get out of events, because as much as I was very, very fond of my friends, I just didn’t have the energy to socialise that often. I craved silent time alone reading.
   These days, however, I feel entirely differently. I wouldn’t call myself an introvert anymore, and while I don’t really get the opportunity to do many social events, I jump at any opportunity I can get. These days I do last minute events that I’d never have done in the past, even if it means missing my rest time or time alone reading. I’d probably go so far as to say I am an extrovert. Seeing people is really important to me, and when social events come to an end, I just wish they’d go on for longer (when in the past I’d get tired and look forward to going home).
   I just think this is all rather interesting. On social media, I see people talking about introversion and extroversion quite often, and when they do, they seem to talk in absolutes, but I think every aspect of a person’s mind is constantly in flux. Introverts become extroverts, people discover new things about their sexualities and tastes change. I don’t think we can ever really know ourselves, because we are always changing. Nothing is static.
