The general internet likes to talk about how introverts need alone time. Introverts want their extroverted friends to understand that sometimes they need to withdraw to recharge and function well.
This is good. It’s important. After all, an extrovert who never made sacrifices to help their introvert friends live in a healthy way wouldn’t be a very good friend, right?
But guess what, introverts. It goes the other way, too.
What if you never go to a party with your extroverted friends?
Never spend time with them when they want company but you would really rather just be alone?
Never make sacrifices to help them live in a healthy way?
Well, that wouldn’t make you a very good friend, would it?
