Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.

It’s been a whole full of crazy ups and downs for the past few months. Had a bad start to 2014 and when I thought I’ve finally settled down, everything screws up all over again. And then it repeats. Now I’m here in July 2014, so used to keeping everything inside and just suck it up. I need to exhale.
Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.
