I’m an introvert, and I hate when someone forces me to talk #venting
I really hate when others go “why isn’t anyone talking?” or “be more social”.
That makes me mad.
I can’t socialize more, and now I won’t because of you saying that. I have social anxiety and look away from strangers to avoid being misgendered, and that’s if I’m lucky. And plus I don’t trust most individuals anyway to even be that social. Everytime I run into stuff like that online, it feels like a middle finger to my existence and to my problems saying “I don’t care if you feel uncomfortable.”
If I’m just lurking online, then don’t ever force me or tell me to join the conversation. I’m lurking and that’s that. Plain and simple. Don’t force me to talk or rush me to give an answer when I’m not feeling like it. Introverts exist. Stop telling us to socialize more. Stop making us the villains in school or work projects or whatever. Stop. It’s very annoying.
