1 of 20 We always want to be alone.
It happens all the time. Someone asks an introvert what they did over the weekend or holiday and we respond, "Oh I just stayed at home." It isn't uncommon, but it creates a common idea -- we always want to be alone. Introverts certainly love their alone time because it gives us time to recharge from a busy week or complete tasks that we've been meaning to do. Despite this, we still enjoy socializing! Whether it's with friends, family, co-workers, or those that share the same interests, we can have a lot of fun hanging out. Our society stigmatizes those that like being alone as being strange. Sometimes, we're often happier being by ourselves because we greatly enjoy our own company. One of the best things in life is being comfortable with yourself without needing someone else around to be happy. Next time you see an introvert, don't assume they always want to be alone.
