The importance of not doing exactly what you want

I have been thinking alot about introversion lately , as I have just gotten back from a three day school camp. Someone I know (I can’t really say he is my friend when it is a rarity we converse in words but more in a language of sighs) is not quite dealing with their introversion. As I am trying to tell you this story I must also respect this persons privacy and as I cannot really call him a new name because I think he would disagree with that I will call this fine fellow T.
I realised that T was introverted at the disco on the second night. For me personally (I’d say it varies from person to person) the day ends at round about three in the afternoon, and that’s on a good day. It’s when your imediate instinct whenever anyone tries to make conversation with you is to yell at them to shut up and go away or to ignore them completely. T was doing exactly what most introverts do, trying not to run to a room, lock himself in it. He kind of floated around the dance frowning at everything in sight, occasionally sitting down.
You might wonder that it wrong to judge him about his actions that evening, but trust me I have stared at that face in the mirror and seen that face to many times not to know what it means. Of corse the fact that everyone was really trying to make him lose it probably wasn’t helping his mood. While he was doing this I was feeling exactly the same. When it’s the end of the day and you have just finished four heart stopping activities, most of which make your stomach launch itself in to your chest, and you have not lost your temper until then it is not that easy.
Any who this is the end of this blog post simply because I have utterly forgotten what eles I was going to write about. Tata.
