I’m a pretty extreme introvert — so much so that often times, in my head, I’m begrudgingly telling people to please “shut the f up” when they are rambling on about nonsense and conversational filler. I know people can see it in my face the moment the conversation lags on longer than necessary. I acknowledge mine is not the popular attitude, hence why I say it in my head and not aloud. Or I walk away. As enriching as it is for some, being held hostage to a conversation I don’t want to be a part of is draining for me.
