Being a homebody sometimes gets a bad reputation. For those of us who relish those nights to ourselves where we can enjoy some fresh Chinese takeout and our favorite TV show, our friends give us a hard time for ignoring the 2,000 messages in the group chat trying to figure out which happy hour to go cruise. Extroverts, don’t take this the wrong way, but most introverts would be glad to remove themselves for that anxiety-inducing group chat to begin with.
We want to see our friends occasionally, but only in moderation. We have a limited supply of friendliness and like a scuba diver running low on oxygen, we stay home by ourselves because we don’t want to get the Benz. In fact, there’s only a few things on this planet that can quickly recover an introvert’s energy levels: comfy sweat pants, a glass of wine, and this week’s collection of relatable introvert memes. Enjoy!
