Like Nick Miller left alone in a fancy restaurant not knowing which knife to kill himself with, introverts might have had a tough time at the NYE party they were forced to attend. If you are one of them, here's how you can recuperate!
Three days into 2024 and most of us are already done. Especially the introverts who were forced to go out and celebrate the year coming to an end. No matter the year, we introverts prefer to be alone and spend time by ourselves. It’s not because we don’t like spending time with our friends, we just LOVE to be alone if given an option. We know what we signed up for when we decided to be friends with extroverts who love to party but that should not be the reason for them to include us in plans that we would rather avoid!
The energy it takes for us to not panic and try to be present in a crowd is a task that we would never be prepared to face. NYE parties are always a big deal among friends but despite it not being everyone’s cup of tea, people are made to attend one. As we deal with the idea of having to show up for yet another year, we decided to make a guide for introverts on how they can unwind after having to meet people while welcoming a new year.
Check it out!
Take out that journal and list down everything you want to do this year, starting with saying ‘NO’ without excuses when your extrovert friends invite you for a trip or party next time
Grab a cozy blanket under which you can lie down and watch the shows and movies that you wanted to watch instead of attending that party
Go on a text-only DND mood as a revenge on all your friends who made you a part of the loud NYE party plan!
Clean up your room because you know you always wanted to. Also, what better isolated way to unwind after the day that you had!
Shut down all that commotion and read the book you ordered last year. The only voices you need are those of your imagination!
Take up another hobby, one that makes your alone time more exciting
Maybe take up cooking? Because having something delicious to munch on while you conduct your introvert activities wouldn’t hurt, right?
Find new music you can add to your already interesting playlist. Even your friends would agree that you have a fabulous taste in music
Have your ‘self-talk quotes’ ready for the next time you are out partying with your friends and start feeling out of place
