While you might not often think about it, plenty of people in this world have conflicting traits within their character. Some of us are outgoing and shy, yes, things like this happen and can be found in most people.
That being said, we are specifically going to focus on people who are struggling with the setbacks that come with having an outgoing personality and yet also an anxious mind. This is a pair that takes a lot of energy to overcome. It can really bring you down or make you look super inconsistent.
You see, when it comes to being outgoing and anxious you are a walking conflict. You go weeks on end not knowing how to respond to anyone only to find one good day where everything makes sense. You live life in two different waves. Sometimes you’re on top of the world and other times you just want to be left alone.
You waste a lot of time on social media only to disappear from it for days on end. You’re more on the shy side but still sometimes are more than capable of approaching any and everyone. You feel lonely only to never truly work out how to let go of it or work through it. You have a few close friends but tons of people want to be your friend or consider you a friend.
You are not like other people. You can’t just get up and go out you have to prepare yourself days in advance. You have to really work up the nerve to get out there and go to a party or even a movie sometimes. You come off as too friendly because you don’t really understand how to even speak to strangers. This creates lots of drama, drama that you ignore instead of clearing up.
Having an anxious mind and an outgoing personality is like being gifted with a double-edged sword. No matter what you do there is no way to avoid getting cut. You are the best and worst of both worlds. You have the ability to do anything you want but your mind refuses to allow it. Your wants clash and your interests well, they don’t make much sense either.
You are a mess but a wonderful mess. While lots of people consider you to be a bit mysterious those who know you well are very entranced by who you are. You are a wonderful kind of person that will get things right in the end. While there are a lot of setbacks that come with being this kind of person you still make it work.
