100% introvert.

It should be obvious being a musician, an artist that I prefer my own company to large crowds of people. But this isn't just a preference, I have a seriously crippling lack of ability to do well in social situations. Especially with people I don't know.

I thought I'd explain what it can be like for an introvert in social situations because I know there are some people who are more extroverted out there who could do with understanding us a bit better; and otherwise, this will explain what an introvert is.

▶︎ When I walk into a room with lots of people I am immediately aware of everything that is going on. Like a cat trying to work out "Is it safe to come in, is the dog outside?" or "Have you stopped hoovering? You know I don't like the sound the vacuum cleaner makes".

▶︎ Except when it comes to humans, other people who make you uneasy or you simply have nothing to say to, and the loud mummer of so many different voices is entirely unavoidable. You can't just say, "No, I'm not coming in, I don't want to," you have to go in either way. It's the rules of human social behaviours.

▶︎ So from the start you are constantly trying to be aware of what other people in the room might next do and you can't concentrate on the conversation you are having. Your brain is so busy watching and listing through the buzz of voices, or the words in the music playing, that you are immediately overcome with exhaustion.

▶︎ Your eyes become droopy and you soon give up on knowing what else is going on because you know by now that you just don't care. It's all too much of a blur and a buzz.

▶︎ And then you just want to curl up on a couch and go to sleep.

▶︎  People are exhausting.

This is what happens to me anyway. Do you struggle with this too?

Introversion is being energised when you are alone or with a close friend, but in a group you just can't deal and it makes you tired.

Introverts are the people who know where the exits are and if there is a way to step outside and still look they are joining in. Like going into the kitchen and just helping with snacks. We will probably take any excuse to get away from that incessant buzz of voices.

Hope this helped.

happy couple app review.

Levi an I have been using a relationship quiz app for a month or so now.

It keeps us talking about topics that aren't currently part of our lives. Like what do we think we would be like as parents.

When I started I was confused and didn't know how to use it or where everything was, but I can look back and say I wasn't actually missing anything. Also I like the bright colours :)

You can see where we do best in the different topics as questions are answered correctly. This here shows that we probably have more of a friendship dynamic with our relationship.

It personalises the questions by substitution your partner's name, so you never forget who the question is about :p

And tells you when your partner has played and the results are in...

Sometimes the answers available are quite extreme and there's a lack of medium options.

That's when being able to write your own answer comes in handy.

What would you answer for this question? Can you answer it right for me too?

2 Cautionary Arguments against The Passion & Message Bible

2 Peter 1:20-21 English Standard Version Knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

My bible is the 1984 New International Version (NIV) by the International Bible Society and was published by Zondervan. It was worked on by over 100 translators, from all over the world and from a number of church denominations. It is a balance between word-for-…

Why I'm Not Using Hormonal Birth Control

When I was recently trying out a new birth control pill, I immediately started showing symptoms that I could not deal with on a daily basis. Then I got to thinking about the long term effects  this drug could have and it was then, at 4 days into my pack, that I remembered the dreadful dark depression that I suffered the first time I was on the pill.

That season of depression was now 5 years ago, but it brought to light some on going mental health issues that I still have to live with today. That depression that was either brought on by my first few months on GINET, or my pre-existing poor mental health was catalysed by the drug; turning from chronic anxiety to very suicidal depression.

I only wish I knew that I had a history of anxiety. Instead I put the daily bats in my belly down as morning sickness, or butterflies due to a boy I liked. Back then I had no idea that mental health and mental illnesses were a thing, or that other people in my family were medicated for such problems.
