It appears that people struggle to grasp the concept that being observant doesn’t mean I’m shy. No worries guys, I’m perfectly at ease with y'all, it’s just that I like to discover people I don’t know and the most effective way to get to know them isn’t by talking like we’ve always been besties or monopolize the attention. I’m not socially anxious, I don’t suffer from mutism, chill. I like to become a minimum familiar with people I just met before getting really talkative.
I swear I’ve received complaints about the fact I’m a listener. People somehow perceive me as weird because I listen to them, pay attention to them and want to know more about them. Who cares about my comments, just let me continue to listen to you talking about that crazy afternoon you spent with your kids a few years ago ! No, I don’t feel the need to share my inexistant opinion in this topic I know barely anything about, please allow me to keep listening to you sharing your knowledge and experience in the said topic.
