Can we come to an understanding on something? Please?
My being an introvert does not preclude me from having healthy, stable, fulfilling friendships and relationships. I read on this blog where introversion must be overcome to reach that goal or that state. I was a little blunt in my comment, and I’ll be blunt here:
Fireworks are not the hallmark of a good, healthy, stable relationship.
You need love, compassion, empathy, loyalty, tolerance, depth. They’re not sexy. But they do last. And just because I’m an INTP doesn’t hinder me from having both a stable and dynamic relationship.
People want relationships–hey, so do I–but often skim the surface and are unwilling to do the deep dive, the work it takes to make a relationship work.
And another thing–the most important relationship you have is with yourself. Trite? Yes. But also true.
I know this is not the last time I’m going to see this sort of thing. I’m ready.
