For me, being that someone is why I sit in silence and solitude and try to simplify my life. If you see me out in public, you’d never know it because I have a fairly well-developed extroverted side. Obviously, no one ever sees the real introverted me. The closest you can come is reading this blog and knowing that I sometimes go off for days to be alone. It’s during those time that I try to keep my head clear of static, static generated by the news or by excessive social and family chatter. It during those times that my independent thought claims that essential me. OR, is it the other way around?
