Bless this muhfucking post SO HARD -
Yes it’s Thought Catalog BUT it’s 6 things every EXTROVERT secretly has to deal with (!!)
And they’re spot on.
OMG. The extroverts, rather than the introverts, finally get to talk about how it’s hard to be us sometimes. (irony)
I thought I was going to hate this post, because the intro was a little aggressive, but oh, my, god, it could not BE more spot on. All of those things! All of them!
I might add to number 4, “People underestimate you because you’re not introspective and thoughtful.” Although, to be fair, I LOVE to explode other people’s expectation.
And I just can’t help shipping Owen and Christina. I want them together so much, despite the huge part of me that wants Christina to have her baby-free career and Owen to have his baby-full life. Ugh.
Maybe Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd could get married so I can feel better about Christina and Owen’s rocky relationship.

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.
See, now that’s a hero worth having.

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped to do a group activity. He gave each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
The delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written within five minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of five minutes no one could find their own balloon. Then, each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker said, “This is exactly what is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.”
And this is the purpose of human life.
