When I was younger I was definitely more of an introvert than an extrovert, I was very shy, afraid of meeting new people, and very anxious in social situations. I did have a few close friends, but more often than not I preferred spending time alone. Over the years, however, as I started university, I was thrown into a new world, far from home, where I was forced to get out of my comfort bubble and meet new people and make new relationships. At first it was terrifying, but as time progressed I realised that I could have as much fun hanging out with friends, as I would alone. Now, I feel like I have found the perfect balance between introvert and extrovert, where I enjoy going out for a drink or a meal with friends, without craving to be back home alone, but where I also enjoy curling up on my sofa with a good book completely alone from time to time.
