What an Introvert says vs thinks

Listening now…



You know we all have those things we say but don’t really mean. And we all might say this thing, while thinking the complete opposite of that in our minds at that very moment.  If you are anything like me as an introvert, you often feel like you are not meant to cohabitate with humans. That’s why I have found my own little introverted haven and ways to self care. 


We often say and think the complete opposite.



We say:

” Yeah, that sounds great- I’ll definitely let you know by the end of the week if I can make it!”

While thinking:

……No, I don’t want to go to that mixer with you. Thanks for the invite, but that sounds absolutely like my worst nightmare. I’d rather be at home enjoying my own company than in a room full of strangers I will feel a pressure to impress, while questioning if I said the right thing.

We say:

“No I was home when you called. I was just in the shower, doing homework, or feeding my dog at the time. No, I wasn’t ignoring your call- I was just busy! I’ll call you back in a few minutes.”  (Via text)



While thinking:

Of course I was staring right at the phone as I saw your call coming in. But why would you call when you know I HATE talking on the phone and am better with texting? And I will probably distract myself with something else for long enough so both of us forget that we even had a phone call date to begin with. I hope you know I still love you.


We say:

” Yeah- I have plans this weekend! “


While thinking:

I have plans with my dogs, wine, Netflix, Sims, and blogging. Ahhhh sounds perfect! 



(In social setting) They ask us, “Are you okay?” And We say:

” Yeah, I’m fine- just tired.”



While thinking:

I am tired, that’s true. I’m tired from trying to keep up with the conversation and realizing that by the time I have something to say, the topic has moved on. Often just sitting back and listening can be exhausting. All of the stimuli and things going on around me in general just makes me tired. But I’m not totally “fine” because although I am happy I came out, I wanted to leave about 2 hours ago to be back in my own space and get my energy back.



P.S.- Still relevant-


A Letter from your Introverted Hermit Friend ❤




Keep doing you my fellow introverted hermits. XOXO

  1. DUDEEEE yes!!!!! at work ppl always try to talk to me about dumb smalltalk stuff and it’s painful. When I get home I just love that I don’t have to talk to anyone.

    • Lmao yes Ellen I totally get it. I agree so much-most of the time at work lately I am too busy and trying to be focused that I just need to like zone into my own world anyway. Lol thanks for commenting 🙂 xoxo


  2. Well, when I was younger I was most definitely not an introvert but life and getting older has certainly turned me around! You and I are so alike….we both need that quiet time to ourselves to re-energize – I guess that’s why we live so well together! Plus having our own space works out well!! 🙂 xoxo

  3. This made me chuckle – so many of these were spot on and as a fellow introvert (with more of an extrovert exterior these days now that I’ve become more confident) I can relate, the inside doesn’t always match the outside!x

    • I chuckled a lot too when I found these pics- lol! So spot on right?! For sure it doesnt always match… i have had people who seem extremely extroverted to me tell me that they are introverts! Thanks for commenting dear. Xoxo

  4. Yes. This. All of it. I’m a fellow hermit too, and much happier on my own. BUT too much of it and I go nuts, too. I guess i just have to pick the places that make me feel comfortable (ie, anything but a mixer. Good gosh, that sounds like a nightmare to me, too, ha!).

    Also who is this man with the delicious voice?! I love this song, so pretty ❤ Hope you're having a great week, my sweet!

  5. Yes, yes, yes to this post!!! I’m a little bit of an introvert and a little bit of an extrovert. But if I had to choose one that I lean towards it would be an introvert. Going out and what not sound fun until I’m out there doing it then I just want to be home in bed. I didn’t choose to be this way. ☹

  6. I’m a part-time introvert. In other words, I can go for weeks, sometimes months, being around people and then suddenly I won’t talk to anyone. I always wonder if my friends and loved ones feel abandoned. Probably, but I need my space. That’s why I disappear from the blog so much. At least i’m not alone in that 🙂

    Oh and honey… you’re so welcome. I love your blog and you’re a sweetheart, so it was a no brainer to put you on the sidebar. As long as you don’t mind this old fart hanging around lol

    • OMG Rue! No- you are anything but an old fart. It means the world to me that you follow me closely and love my blog- I am totally a country loving homebody like you and can totally relate to you in many ways Rue! Xoxox Thank you so much


  7. I loved reading this and can relate so much…whilst the company of others can be great, I sometimes find it draining and spending time alone is needed to get me back on an even keel. Nice to find your blog 🙂
