Hey, nice that you are stopping by. My name is Mim, I'm 30 years old and from Germany. I'm an introvert, INFJ to be exact. When I was younger, I thought that being introverted is something bad I need to change. But it's not. We are okay the way we are. Being introverted isn't a weakness, it's a lifestyle.

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.

By the way ...

I’m not saying that being introverted is BETTER than being extroverted. I’m also not saying that being extroverted is WORSE. I got messages from pissed off extroverts who wanted me to stop bashing them. I am not bashing you. I am just making clear, that introverts are just as good as extroverts. 

As an introvert I grew up thinking something is wrong with me. Peers in school asked me things like: “Why are you so quiet?” And they made fun of me, because I was a quiet one. 

With this Tumblr blog I just want to bolster introverts up to be their own person, to accept who they are and to know that they are not alone.

It’s not important if you are a quiet one or a loud one. YOU matter!

During a conversation in a group I always think too much about what I want to say. And when I finally know what I wanna say, they already talk about another topic.

Introverts crave meaning so party chitchat feels like sandpaper to our psyche.
