The Introvert’s Forest

woods path

An extrovert may glimpse this path and see loneliness mixed with impending danger.

An introvert may glimpse this path and find deep serenity, the danger being not taking this path.

While this may be a liability in terms of safety, as an introvert I find the most isolated places the most comforting.  In fact, walking at night and seeing houses lit up, at times I feel more at ease on the outside looking in, no matter how late at night.

I wouldn’t encourage such risk-taking behavior, but I have to admit I cater to it from time to time.  I feel exhilarated alone outside at night, in tune with something larger than myself that allows my thoughts to breathe without vocalization.
