I do attend get-togethers when it’s important for me to go, like events related to work (when it’s necessary for me to be polite) or the special occasion of a dear friend. Now, after books and therapy, she knows her personality has a name: INFJ.The difference is now I am more in control of my time. She has now embraced her introversion and is proud of her nature.It's obvious that you really care about him just because you found this forum to open up about your situation.
She pointed out to as many people as possible that I wasn’t enjoying myself. I, on the other hand, was always quiet, and “quiet” seemed to be a synonym for dull. Many years later, I realized that feeling dissatisfied in a crowded room was not a disorder. I learned that introverts have many things to be grateful for: I don’t have to surrounded myself with many people to have fun; I can spend time by myself and enjoy it; and I can go to those deep places in my heart that are only known by those who take the time to look carefully.
When I heard those words, I imagined the whole scene: drinks, snacks, music, and people talking loudly and laughing as if there were no tomorrow.
” That was my friend, as excited as can be, letting us know about her birthday celebration.
I initially tried to convince him I would never leave him and that I find him fascinating and love him. Have you ever told someone they are too good for you or you don't know if you can be who they deserve? Similar to your boyfriend, I also struggle with anxiety, have expressed doubts about myself, and at times have not felt good enough for my girlfriend either.
I think what you have been doing so far sounds excellent, which is simply telling him that you'll be there for him no matter what and also by being open about your own insecurities.
