More Than Meets The Eye: 7 Myths About Introverts That You Shouldn’t Believe

We humans tend to judge and stereotype people a lot, but what most of us often end up doing is a case of misjudgment. So much so that forming an opinion without knowing the whole truth has become second nature to our society. For a long time ‘introverts’ have been categorized as many things and have been labelled ‘boring’ and ‘mean’. But it’s time we debunk these myths and put in a little effort to actually get to know someone before we form a judgement. While we are conditioned to judge a book by its cover, seldom we form the…Continue Reading

15 Memes That’ll Make Every Introvert LOL (Very Quietly)

Hello, my name is Farishte, and I’m an introvert. *stares at people hoping to avoid unnecessary interaction* Being an introvert is fun. It mostly just involves spending time with yourself (and loving it) and spending time with a few close friends (and loving that). And also, avoiding avoidable social interaction, because that’s EXHAUSTING. Now, the internet understands this, and gave us a whole bunch of hilariously relatable memes. So, my fellow introverts, let’s unite. Silently. *relates in silence* I might have done this. Once. Twice. A million times. #lol #funnypics #funnypictures #funnymemes #funnypics #introvertproblems #introvert #neighbors #memes #introvertmemes #lmao A…Continue Reading

15 Things You Know Too Well If You’re A Quiet Person With A LOT To Say

When I first switched jobs, I was told by a bunch of well-meaning people to talk more. To voice my opinions a bit more. To be more critical of the world around me without simply accepting it. Little did they know that I was plenty critical of the world around me and that I did have a lot to say, I simply chose not to say it. It took a while for them to understand the way I worked, to understand that my lack of vocalization didn’t go hand-in-hand with the tornado of thoughts I had. And if you’re anything…Continue Reading

Why I’d Rather Be Loved Deeply By Few, Than Liked By All

I grew up trying to fit in. Cutting out pieces of myself because I was too much. Too loud. Too hopeful. Eyes too wide with dreams. A heart too eager to fall in love. So I cut myself, painting the acceptance that came with it, red. And it finally happened. I fit in. I just wasn’t me anymore. The world around me liked me. They liked me for the person whose smile stretched across her face like a mask. For someone who uttered carefully crafted syllables while choking on her words. For someone who had forgotten what it felt like…Continue Reading

I’m An Introvert And Here’s The Kind Of Love I’ve Been Waiting For

I speak less, I feel more. I find solace in being alone. So to be in love and want you, it takes a little effort. This isn’t arrogance, it is my raw honesty. My heart finds comfort in silence; my voice isn’t the strongest around people. See, I haven’t let many into my life, and so I cannot tell you what I fear. I can however, lay bare my heart and tell you what I have to offer. Come find me if you understand. I am a gentle stream; I dance in my own wilderness. I walk alone, but I’ve…Continue Reading

10 Signs An Introvert Actually Likes You (And Is Kinda Hiding It)

*sigh* Introverts, amirite? It’s impossible to understand what goes on in that weird little head of theirs. Especially when it comes to matters of the heart! They might want your affection, but they will rarely, if ever, be caught going out of their way to seek it. To tell you that they care, that they’re interested, and even that they really, really like you. (Yes, they’re basically cats.) But don’t worry just yet. To help you out a little along the way, here are 10 signs that you might be right in thinking that an introvert is romantically interested in…Continue Reading

10 Places In India You Should Travel To If You Love Nature, Peace And Quiet

My idea of travel basically includes heading to a place for a week or two and soaking it all in. For me, it isn’t so much about ticking off all the popular spots. Rather, it’s about walking in those quiet, narrow lanes and reading the way the sky changes every hour. I like quiet places. Places that have their own calm breath and seek to bring you home to yours. I am a fan of what people call the “introverted” corners of the country and I love basking in nature, every moment of the day. If your idea of travel…Continue Reading

If Inanimate Objects Talked Like Humans – So Funny, You’ll DIE Laughing!

There are days when I simply do not want to adult. Most of the times, I have to fight really hard to resist the urge to shout “fuck this sh*t”, walk out and never return. But like most people, I cannot opt out of adulting. On the bright side thought, there are Teo Zirini’s absolutely smart illustrations that make those dreary days, bearable. I am not saying this just for the humour that Teo’s comics so effortlessly master, but also for the thought that goes behind creating them. His major inspiration comes from non-living things to which he grants the…Continue Reading

15 Things You’ll Relate To If The Fast-Paced City Life Just Isn’t For You

I moved from a small town to a big city when I was 16. Mumbai has treated me well. It has taken care of me and taught me lessons I wouldn’t have learned without it. But through and through, I’ve been acutely aware that this life – these fancy buildings and people too busy to breathe…this life isn’t for me. I always liked dancing in meadows more than taking part in rat races. I’m a country girl. I come from a place where you can see the stars and smell the rain. And for those of you who feel the…Continue Reading

7 Things You Will Get If You Write Your Opinion Better Than Speak It

There are people who can say everything they want to, to whomsoever they want to – then there are those who can just confide in a handful and there are those who just can’t say anything at all. But there is another category that trumps these: the ones who just cannot express their innermost fears and desires to anyone verbally, no matter how close to them the person is, but can write essays on messages, trying to convey in written words what they cannot in speech. There is no fancy term to describe such souls, but they do exist, and…Continue Reading
